actress and singer Olivia Newton-Johnthe star of grease, died aged 73. He had fought for more than 30 years against breast cancer. Her family asked that “in lieu of flowers” those wishing to send donations to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation.
Although he made other films and managed to put songs at number one in the American charts, such as Physically (1981), the huge success of grease, alongside John Travolta, is the first thing that usually comes to mind for viewers. Travolta himself dedicated a few words to his colleague on Monday: “You made our lives so much better”.
For me, Olivia went to heaven like that. pic.twitter.com/uxxopd4Y0A

Others have thought of it some other curiosity.
“Olivia Newton-John was the granddaughter of Max Born (here with her son Gustav), one of the founders of quantum physics and a Nobel laureate in physics. He was the first to understand (in 1925) the meaning given to the “wave function” of the Schrödinger equation. 👇 https://t.co/XQDUD9TzZq

We have lost one of the best voices in the world. Grease is a wonderful movie and Olivia would be worthy of going down in history just by appearing in it, so I’m glad so many people adore this movie. But there is much more.https://t.co/RGq4aqI3zh

Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta at the 50th Academy Awards (April 3, 1978).
A few months later, they took the world by storm as Sandy and Danny in Grease – which became the highest-grossing film of 1978, proving that Grease was (and forever will be) the word. pic.twitter.com/MmGrhzDWfC

After the death of Olivia Newton John, can it really be said that a 30-year-old cancer survivor has “lost the battle”? It is very unfair to say that.

The power and talent that possessed Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta: Grease is to this day the last musical film to be the highest-grossing film of the year worldwide. No other live musical can achieve this success. Two geniuses who marked an era. pic.twitter.com/1qgA8evuoB

Olivia Newton-John was not only one of the most beautiful and versatile female voices in the history of pop music, but she was also the voice of two great soundtracks (Grease and Xanadu) and an icon in the fight against cancer. Her death makes her a legend. REST IN PEACE pic.twitter.com/K59yo5hwHc
