Listen: Marisha Wallace Releases 'Hopelessly Devoted to You' in Honour of Olivia Newton-John

Marisha will be donating all her profits from the single to NHS Charities Together.

Broadway and West End superstar Marisha Wallace has released a rendition of Hopelessly Devoted To You, the iconic Oscar-nominated track from the 1978 classic 'Grease', in honour of the late Olivia Newton-John.

Marisha will be donating all her profits from the single to NHS Charities Together, the national independent charity caring for the NHS, working with a network of over 230 NHS Charities across the UK to help the NHS go further for staff and patients.

Listen below:


One of the many standout moments in Olivia Newton-John's career, Hopelessly Devoted To Youtopped the charts across the world and reached No.2 in the UK on its original release. With her rendition, Marisha is honouring a woman, who has not just had a massive impact on Marisha's own life and career, but has influenced and been loved and cherished by so many, and whose star quality never seemed to dim.

Growing up on a pig farm in North Carolina, Grease was the first ever musical Marisha watched as child. Seeing Olivia and her unparalleled performance on screen, Marisha truly discovered who she wanted to be and that a career in musicals was the only way for her. After leading performances in Dreamgirls, Waitress, Hairspray and many more and in a full circle moment, Marisha honours one of the most iconic performers with an elegant and warm rendition of a song loved and cherished by so many across the world.



Review: BUTCHERED, VAULT Festival Photo
There are some shows that fit perfectly within the walls of The Vaults. Magic is made when old bricks and humidity meet the right production. Expial Atrocious’ Butchered is one of those that feel at home enveloped by the horrid architecture and the rumblings of Waterloo Station. The love child of Sweeney Todd and Hannibal, it’s a grim look at life and death in a dog-eat-dog world.

Review: THE LAMB DISAGREES, VAULT Festival Photo
It’s equally funny and stimulating, opening up a broader conversation about people’s use of foreign cultures and experiences to further their own goals. Wang only gives a taste of the issue in The Lamb Disagrees, but we hope her budding career will explore the subject in more detail.

Review: FOR A BRIEF MOMENT AND NEVER AGAIN SINCE, VAULT Festival Photo
It’s a missed opportunity to explore young parenthood and the effects of thoughtless actions on a couple.
