With a career spanning more than five decades she is still a vibrant, creative individual adored by fans across the world. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in "Grease" catapulted Olivia into super-stardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time. This film's best-selling soundtrack featured the duets "You're The One That I Want" and "Summer Nights," with Travolta, as well as her mega-hit, "Hopelessly Devoted To You." Her other feature film credits include "Funny Things Happen Down Under," "Toomorrow," "Xanadu," "Two Of A Kind," "It's My Party," "Sordid Lives," "Score: A Hockey Musical," and "A Few Best Men."<
In 1973, Olivia's U.S. album debut, "Let Me Be There," produced her first top ten single of the same name, with Olivia being honored by the Academy Of Country Music as Most Promising Female Vocalist and a Grammy Award as Best Country Vocalist. This proved to be only the beginning of a very exciting career. Newton-John has ten #1 hits including "Physical," which topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks, and over 15 top 10 singles. In September 2008, Billboard Magazine listed "Physical" at #6 on their Top 100 Songs Of All Time list and in 2010 listed it as "The Sexiest Song of All Time".
Her personal triumph against breast cancer led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre (ONJCWC) in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. After nearly ten years of fundraising close to $200 million, the ONJCWC opened its doors in 2012. Recently, her acclaimed "Summer Nights" concert residency at Flamingo Las Vegas gave a portion of every ticket sold to benefit the Wellness Programs at the ONJCWC.
