Featured Artist

Olivia Newton-John is a singer, songwriter, actress, author, and activist. She was born in England on September 26, 1948. Later, when she was five years old, her family relocated to Melbourne, Australia.

Her career in the limelight began early. According to her official website, her first big break was winning the televised talent contest Sing, Sing, Sing. She was regularly featured on Australian weekly pop music programs and local daytime television shows by 1963. Her early success led her to partner with long-time friend Pat Carroll, and by 1965 the pair was performing professionally at army bases and clubs throughout Europe.

But it was Newton-John’s portrayal of Sandy in the movie Grease (1978) – one of the most successful movie musicals of all time – that made her a globally known celebrity. The movie’s best-selling soundtrack includes the duet hits with co-star John Travolta “You’re the One That I Want” and “Summer Nights.”

Over the course of her career, Newton-John has won many awards, including four Grammys. She has also been presented with numerous Country Music, American Music, and People’s Choice Awards. Some of her hits include “Please Mr. Please” (1975) and “I Honestly Love You” (1979). Her suggestive song “Physical,” released in 1981, was listed as #6 on Billboard Magazine’s Top 100 Songs of All Time. In 2012, she was named a “National Living Treasure” by the Australian National Trust, and in 2013 she was featured in the “Australian Post Legends” series, getting her own stamp.

Newton-John has been married twice and has one daughter, Chloe, from her first marriage to Matt Lattanzi. The two divorced in 1995. She married her second and current husband, ‘Amazon John’ Easterling, in 2008. She is a breast-cancer survivor, and following her diagnosis in the 1990s became an outspoken advocate for women’s health, emphasizing the importance of early detection and self-examination. Her battle with cancer led to her partnership with Austin Health (in Australia) and the establishment of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center.

She continues to remain active in the music world. In 2015, she toured with Australian star John Farnham across Australia, and followed that with a sold-out tour in Japan. Currently, she performs an on-going show, Summer Nights, at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.

Oliva Newton-John also shares her name with our Life 103.1 Station Mascot.
