Born in Cambridge, England in 1948, Olivia moved to Melbourne, Australia with her family when she was five. Olivia cut her first single for Decca Records in 1966, a version of Jackie DeShannon’s Till You Say You’ll Be Mine. 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.
With more than 100 million albums sold, her successes include three more Grammys, numerous Country Music, American Music and Peoples Choice Awards, ten #1 hits including Physical, which topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks, and over 15 top 10 singles. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in “Grease” catapulted Olivia into super-stardom. 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. To date “Grease” remains the most successful movie musical in history. Her other film credits include “Xanadu,” “Two Of A Kind,” “It’s My Party,” “Sordid Lives,” “Score: A Hockey Musical” and “A Few Best Men,” set for release in January 2012.
In the 90’s, Olivia successfully overcame her own battle with breast cancer, which inspired her self-penned and produced album, GAIA, her most personal album reflecting upon her experiences with cancer. She used these experiences to gain greater self-awareness and became a positive inspiration to millions of people battling cancer. Olivia continues to give back to the community generously and has been acknowledged many times by charitable and environmental organizations for her ongoing efforts.
As an advocate for breast cancer early detection, Olivia partnered with Austin Health to build the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne. Set to open in June 2012, the Centre will include purpose built facilities for cancer treatment, education and training and deliver international research programs. A dedicated Wellness Centre will also provide complimentary therapies to the latest medical treatment - to help heal the whole person - body, mind and spirit.
In 1999, Olivia garnered an
Emmy Award for her songwriting and returned to work as a performer
touring extensively in the United States for the first time in seventeen
years. In the new millennium, her international recognition has
continued to grow. In 2002, Olivia was inducted into the prestigious
Australian Music Hall Of Fame at the 16th Annual Aria Awards. Then, in
2006 she received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
recorded a concert special at the Sydney Opera House with the Sydney
Symphony for PBS in 2007, has appeared in two episodes of Glee, (another
Top 100 hit with Physical, performed with Jane Lynch) and has a new
film due for release in January 2012, A Few Best Men, with a soundtrack

and 80s, recorded by Olivia.
Memorable career moments include dancing with Gene Kelly, singing Dare to Dream with John Farnham to a global audience at the Sydney 2000 Olympics and a Vatican invitation to perform at the Jubilee Celebration for the Sick and Healthcare Workers.
Olivia is a creative and vibrant individual who gives generously through her humanitarian, animal rights and environmental projects and was bestowed an OBE for her commitment to charity.
Olivia's first book, LivWise: Easy Recipes For A Healthy, Happy Life, was released in Australia in 2011 and is set for release in the USA and UK in 2012.
In addition to starring in films and on television and writing books and music, Olivia continues to spend time in the recording studio. Her healing CD released in 2010, Grace and Gratitude: Renewed debuted at #2 on the Billboard Magazine “New Age” chart. In addition, Billboard celebrated Olivia’s new music by saying, “Newton-John is soulfully committed to every word she sings, and fans will be taken by the plush arrangements, melodic warmth, and of course, the artist’s regal vocals.” She is currently working on a dance remix CD of some of her classic hits, as well new songs, for release in 2012.
