Olivia Newton-John is still adored by fans globally after five decades. Born in Cambridge, England in 1948, Olivia moved to Melbourne, Australia when she was five. Her first big break was winning a talent contest on the popular TV show, "Sing, Sing, Sing". At fifteen, she formed an all-girl group called Sol Four.

Olivia cut her first single for Decca Records in 1966. Olivia's U.S. album debut, "Let Me Be There," gained her the Most Promising Female Vocalist in the Academy Of Country Music and a Grammy Award as Best Country Vocalist. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in "Grease" catapulted Olivia into super-stardom. Olivia hosted the popular "Wild Life" television show, and was bestowed an O.B.E.
