With a career spanning more than four decades, Olivia Newton-John is a vibrant, creative musician and actress adored by fans across the world. She touched hearts with songs like “If Not For You,” “I Honestly Love You,” and “Sam” before taking the US by storm as “Sandy” in the hit musical Grease with John Travolta. The 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.
With more than 100 million albums sold, Newton-John’s successes include four Grammy Awards; numerous Country Music, American Music, and People’s Choice Awards; ten #1 hits including “Physical,” which topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks and was listed in Billboard magazine’s Top 100 Songs of All Time; and over 15 Top Ten singles. Newton-John has also starred in other feature films, including Xanadu, Two of a Kind, It’s My Party, Sordid Lives, Score: A Hockey Musical, and A Few Best Men.
Throughout her career, Newton-John has held many humanitarian causes close to her heart. She served as goodwill ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme and as national spokesperson for the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition after the death of her daughter’s best friend from a rare childhood cancer.
As a breast cancer survivor, Newton-John is respected for talking openly about her battle with cancer and for advocating the importance of early detection. Her personal triumph over cancer led her to partner with Austin Health and create the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre (ONJCWC) on the Austin Campus in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. The ONJCWC provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training, and research, including a wellness center for the mind, body and spirit.
On stage Olivia Newton-John is a profound and inspiring speaker no matter what the topic – the future of our children, the importance of raising breast cancer and AIDS awareness, environmental conservation, or animal rights. Her appearances always empower listening audiences while communicating her genuine warmth and concern for the future of humanity and our planet.
Whether discussing her illustrious career or stressing the importance of physical and spiritual wellness, she is an inspiring speaker who will touch your audience with her candor.
