Canada’s Alanis Morissette headlines Miami Beach culture festival

Isn’t it ironic for the singer to be performing in sunny Florida during the Canadian winter season? Don’t you think?

Florida has always been a popular destination for Canadians, especially during the winter months, and March Break usually has university and college crowds making a bee line for the sand in cities like Miami Beach for a quick escape to the U.S. sunshine state to ward off the winter blues. 

This year, the City of Miami Beach wants Canadians to know that there is a lot more to the vacation destination than its beaches. Miami Beach is offering itself up as the primary destination for Canadians to frolic in the sunshine for four weekends in March. During the month-long celebration called Miami Beach Live there will be events and performances throughout the city.

Ontario’s own Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette is one of the headliners for the Miami Beach Live event. The Ironic singer is performing in front of a live audience the weekend of March 11-13. 

The hair-wielding diva plays guitar and harmonica during her live shows. She also plays the piano when the opportunity presents itself and sometimes does acoustic versions of her songs. She has seven GRAMMYs in the U.S., about double the number of Junos in Canada and many more music awards in other countries. Morissette has a long list of fan favourites, including Thank U, Hand in My Pocket, Uninvited, You Oughta Know, You Learn, and Ironic. If you can’t wait for her Jagged Little Pill 25th anniversary world tour later in 2022 this is a great chance to catch her live. There is only one date set for Canada this year.

Miami Beach Live performers include jazz and R&B musician Jon Batiste, composer on the award-winning animated short film Soul and bandleader on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The event features performances by Broadway actress Bernadette Peters, a dance party with Erasure, Colombian singer-songwriter Juanes, and Hold On singers Wilson Phillips.  

Check the new Core Music Events section under Music for details if you are thinking about visiting Miami Beach, only a 13-minute drive away from Miami. Maybe you’re already there.
