    The 'Rebirth' of Music - March 5-8, 2008


    TORONTO, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Alanis Morissette, Grammy-winning
singer-songwriter, musician, producer and actress, will be inducted into the
Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame Friday, March 7th. She will be awarded
with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Canadian Radio Music Awards, taking
place at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel during the 26th Annual Rogers
MusicStore Canadian Music Week.
    From the massive worldwide success of her Grammy-winning 1995 debut for
Maverick Records, Jagged Little Pill - which remains one of the most popular
recordings in music history with over 30 million in sales worldwide - through
her eclectic and highly praised subsequent albums, Morissette has become one
of Canada's most recognized and internationally acclaimed singer-songwriters.
    A seven-time Grammy Award winner and 12-time JUNO Award winner,
Morissette is also a recipient of two Golden Globe nominations, including
"Best Original Song-Motion Picture" for "Wunderkind", theme song for "The
Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe".
    Her other chart-topping albums include Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie
(1998), MTV Unplugged (1999), Under Rug Swept (2002) and So-Called Chaos
(2004). To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of Jagged Little Pill,
Morissette released a studio acoustic version in 2005 entitled, Jagged Little
Pill Acoustic. Her most recent release, The Collection CD and DVD (2005),
includes select favourites as well as her newest single, "Crazy", which
reached No. 9 on the Billboard charts.
