According to her family, multi-platinum-selling singer Olivia Newton-John, who starred in Grease, passed away at the age of 73. Her husband John Easterling issued a brief statement confirming that she had died on Monday morning at her ranch in California. According to the statement, Olivia has been a symbol of achievements and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer.
He requested that everyone respect the family’s privacy during this extremely trying time. Newton-John, a singer and actress, found fame in the country music industry and sold millions of CDs. But it was her portrayal of Sandy in the Grease movie that made her a household name.
Newton-John rose to prominence as a champion for cancer research after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis at the beginning of the 1990s. Queen Elizabeth honored her with the title of Dame in the 2020 New Year’s Honours list in recognition of her contributions to the field.
