Olivia Rodrigo Inducts Alanis Morissette Into Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame

Olivia Rodrigo is supporting Alanis Morissette on her big night!

The 19-year-old “drivers license” singer joined the 48-year-old singer/songwriter on the red carpet at the 2022 Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala on Saturday evening (September 26) at Massey Hall in Toronto, Canada.

During the event, Olivia gave a touching speech as she helped induct Alanis into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Olivia started her speech by referencing Alanis‘ Grammy-winning album Jagged Little Pill, which was released in 1995 – eight years before Olivia was born!

“My life was completely changed. Alanis’ songwriting was unlike anything I’d ever heard before and I haven’t heard anything quite like it since,” Olivia said on stage, via Billboard. “And that voice — fierce and tender and sometimes funny and playful. I became hooked for life.”

Olivia continued, “Alanis captured the anger, the grief and the love of the human experience better than anyone. Her songs unite people and empower people and help them heal. Alanis, you’re a trailblazer and you’ve inspired an entire generation of uncompromising, radically honest songwriting. But even more than your long list of musical achievements, I look up to your character and your kindness most of all.”

“If they had a Hall of Fame for being the most incredible human being with the biggest heart, I’m 100 percent positive you’d be inducted into that one as well,” Olivia added.

Also in attendance at the gala was Katharine McPhee and husband David Foster, who was also inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame that night.

If you missed it, Olivia made a surprise appearance at this entertainer‘s recent show!

FYI: Olivia is wearing a Saint Laurent dress and shoes.
