Olivia Wows Sold Out Crowd!


  Me & Olivia!

An amazing journey through hit after hit. Olivia wowed the sold out concert in Norman, Oklahoma on Wednesday night. Olivia's voice was clear and in perfect form. I don't think I have ever heard her sound so good. The light show was great. But the set list was even greater Olivia performed most of her hits plus added some album tracks that she has never performed live before. She also announced the upcoming release of her new Christmas CD with John Travolta titled "THIS CHRISTMAS" which is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released November 13. I waited after the show for almost two hours for ONJ to emerge from the back of the arena where her tour buses were waiting. She graciously stopped and signed autographs and took pictures with the many fans who were waiting for her. A perfect ending to a perfect evening.

Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta reunite for Christmas CD



Guest-stars include Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, James Taylor, Chick Corea, Kenny G, Cliff Richard 

“You’re the One That I Want” Songwriter Contributes To New Original Duet.


LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2, 2012— When your first single from the Grease album, the biggest movie musical of all time, is chart-topping “You’re the One That I Want, and it becomes the best-selling duet in pop music history - that’s a tough act to follow. But almost 35 years later, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have combined their iconic voices for This Christmas, available November 13 from Universal Music Enterprises. A true labor of love made specifically for “the giving season,” Travolta and Newton-John will donate the artist proceeds from the album equally to their respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia. 

One of the highlights of the album is the one original song, the aptly titled “I Think You Might Like It.” This is the sequel to John and Olivia’s Grease smash, “You’re the One That I Want,” a new tune by that song’s writer/producer John Farrar, marking yet another This Christmas-spawned reunion. “John Farrar was just as hard on me now as he was then,” laughs Travolta. “We went for perfection on it.” “It was really fun to do that,” says Olivia. “If it wasn’t for that song, we wouldn’t be here talking about it 30 years later.” 

Produced by veteran keyboardist/arranger/orchestrator Randy Waldman, This Christmas is the audio equivalent of those classic network TV specials hosted from the stars’ homes, an intimate, warm set of traditional holiday songs from an all-star lineup that includes Barbra Streisand (“I’ll Be Home for Christmas”), Tony Bennett and the Count Basie Orchestra (“Winter Wonderland”), James Taylor (“Deck the Halls”), Chick Corea (“This Christmas”), Kenny G (“Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”), Cliff Richard (“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”) and the original “I Think You Might Like It” by writer/producer John Farrar. 

The idea for the collection came from Travolta after receiving a Christmastime text from his old friend Olivia noting that their 1978 smash, “You’re the One That I Want,” had just become the best-selling duet in pop music history. “From the moment we decided to do this, magic happened,” says Travolta. “Everyone we contacted agreed to do it.” 

“It just fell into place,” added Newton-John, a four-time Grammy® winner, who has scored five No. 1 singles and two chart-topping albums, selling a total of more than 100 million albums worldwide. “With our busy schedules, I don’t know how we got it done. John and I have always connected. That’s never gone away. When we’re together, we have a good laugh and feel bonded to one another. We’ve been through some amazing experiences together.” 

“My desire was to make This Christmas an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy,” says Travolta, who early in his career was featured as an actor/singer/dancer with the touring company of Grease. “I wanted people to be able to play it around the house or in the car during the holidays, and make us part of your celebration. Gathering around house listening to Christmas music has always been an important part of that time of the year to my family.” 

But the real importance of This Christmas is the money it will raise to fund Travolta and Newton-John’s charities - one to combat children’s disabilities, including autism and seizures, named after John’s late son, Jett; the other to help search for a cure for cancer and to help victims of the disease. 

“We all felt a wonderful, joyful energy while recording this album,” adds Olivia. “We want to make a lot of people smile and happy. It’s a project that we’re hoping turns into a perennial, one that can continue to raise money for these causes year after year, a gift that keeps on giving.”

Olivia Newton-John - Love And Let Live (World AIDS Day Promo)



Re-post

I originally posted this back in 2008 for World AIDS Day. This is a custom compilation that I put together especially for that day. I hope that you enjoy the re-post.

The 1st of December, World AIDS Day, is the day when individuals and organisations from around the world come together to bring attention to the global AIDS epidemic. 2008 marks the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day. Whilst we have come a long ways since 1988, there is still much more to be done. You can click here for more on World AIDS Day and find out what you can do.


I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. But now today December 1st is World AIDS Day and I thought it appropriate to contribute something in my own way. I thought it would be nice to share this promo CDr with lyrics to think about. The song "Love And Let Live" was originally released in 1988 the year World AIDS Day began and was from Olivia's album "The Rumour" the lyrics say alot about the times that we lived in the 80's and now. I have also included a special club mix edit of another Olivia track called "I Need Love" this one also deals with the dangers of not having safe sex and AIDS. I have included the lyrics to both songs in this package please read them. And lastly for fun it's the 7" mix of "The Rumour" mixed by Shep Pettibone. Please let us continue to fight this disease so that someday we will find a cure, so that future generations do not have to deal with this awful disease. Thank you and I hope you enjoy it.

Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre stamp



Around 110,000 cases of cancer are diagnosed in Australia each year, and the disease is a major cause of death. This stamp issue will help raise funds towards the new cancer research and treatment centre at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne. 

 The Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre will offer an integrated approach to cancer treatment, undertaking clinical research in collaboration with the renowned Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and offering mainstream medical treatment alongside complementary wellness therapies. Stage 1 of the centre opens in July 2012, with the full centre scheduled to open by mid-2013. The centre will provide services for men, women and children with any type of cancer. 

 The purchase of each sheetlet of 10 x 60c stamps will raise $2 in support of the centre. 

 Whether for actual postage or for a keepsake, this is a cool purchase that helps people. You can purchase online for delivery anywhere (as I understand) by clicking here.

Olivia Newton-John's "Gaia" CD now available in US



Olivia Newton-John's highly acclaimed CD "Gaia" is now available in the US.

Previously, "Gaia" was available as an import but now Green Hill Music has released the CD, with new packaging, in the US. This CD features songs written by Olivia as she finished her cancer journey in the mid-1990s.

Described as "one woman's journey from darkness into light, healing and serenity," all of the songs feature her stellar vocals, and lyrics that chronicle much of her emotional journey in overcoming cancer.

You can order the CD by visiting the Green Hill Music website.

"Grease" is the word for "Glee"


Glee is adding a bit of greased lightning to its repertoire.
When the Fox musical dramedy returns Jan. 17, New Directions will be getting their Grease on, and we’ve got your first look at the greasers and the Pink Ladies.

Is Sam the Danny Zuko to Mercedes’ Sandy? He’s sure trying to be, even taking a move out of Danny’s playbook and signing up for synchronized swimming, where his coach is played by The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s NeNe Leakes.
