Canadian-American singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette will finally perform her special one-night concert at the Mall of Asia Arena on August 1 to celebrate the 28th anniversary of her most recognized and iconic album, Jagged Little Pill.
Her upcoming show in Manila is part of her tour celebrating the supposedly 25th anniversary of her album and was originally scheduled to take place at the MOA Arena in April 2020 but it was moved to December 2021, and then to November 2022. The shows have been postponed three times because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jagged Little Pill captured the zeitgeist of the mid ‘90s by crossing the line between Gen-X cynicism and self-realization. It was pitched somewhere between glitzy mainstream pop and angst-ridden alternative rock. The album produced a string of Top 10 songs like “You Oughta Know,” “Hand in My Pocket,” and “Ironic.” It also won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, making the 21-year-old Morissette the youngest performer to ever win the prestigious honor. The album, on the other hand, was ranked number 69 on Rolling Stone’s list of “the 500 best albums of all time.”
Morissette won a total of seven Grammys and was nominated fourteen times. Included among her finest songs are “You Learn,” “Head Over Feet,” “All I Really Want,” “Thank You,” “Mary Jane,” “Uninvited,” “Perfect,” “Forgiven,” “Right Through You,” “Wake Up,” and many more.
And she has been one of the most influential singer-songwriter musicians in contemporary music since 1995. Her deeply expressive music and performances have received widespread praise from critics.
Jagged Little Pill, Morissette’s debut album from 1995, was followed by nine more eclectic and acclaimed albums. She has composed music for theatrical releases and appeared in films both big and small. Aside from entertainment, she is a strong advocate for female empowerment, as well as spiritual, psychological, and physical well-being.
Alanis launched Conversation with Alanis Morissette in 2016, a monthly podcast featuring conversations with a variety of revered authors, doctors, educators, and therapists on a wide range of psychosocial topics ranging from spirituality to developmentalism to art.
