Olivia Rodrigo will help sing the praises of Alanis Morissette.

The 19-year-old Rodrigo will present Morissette with her induction into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame during the Sept. 24 ceremony in Toronto, organizers announced Tuesday.

“I remember hearing Alanis for the first time when I was about 13,” Rodrigo said in a statement.

“I was in the car with my parents when Jagged Little Pill came on,” she said, referring to Morisette’s seminal 1995 album. “I heard ‘Perfect,’ I was like, ‘Oh, my God. … You can write songs like that?’ I just looked at music and songwriting in a completely different way.”

The Canadian-born Morissette, 48, is a seven-time Grammy winner known for hits such as “You Oughta Know” and “Ironic.”


The rocker is one of five new inductees announced by the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame on Tuesday, joining Bryan Adams, David Foster, David Lavoie and Jim Vallance. The ceremony will take place at Massey Hall.

Rodrigo rose to fame as a Disney actress, which included starring on “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” and released her debut album, “Sour,” last year, spawning hits like “driver’s license” and “good 4 u.”

The California-born Rodrigo won three Grammys this year, including best new artist.
