CATOOSA — Internationally recognized four-time Grammy Award-winning singer, actress and philanthropist Olivia Newton-John, known for her timeless talent and vibrant career, is coming to the stage at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel Casino Tulsa on March 22.
With a career spanning over five decades with more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia’s successes include four Grammys; numerous Country Music, American Music, Billboard and People’s Choice Awards; an Emmy Award; 10 No. 1 hits; and more than 15 top 10 singles. She recently scored another No. 1 hit, this time on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi – becoming the first mother/daughter duo to top this chart.
In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in “Grease” catapulted Olivia into superstardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time.
Throughout her career, the much-loved star has held many humanitarian and environmental causes close to her heart. Olivia served as Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme, was the co-founder of Children’s Health Environmental Coalition (now Healthy Child, Healthy World) and, in 1992, she created National Tree Day in Australia, which is responsible for planting more than 10 million trees since its beginning. Most recently she co-founded One Tree Per Child, an international school initiative with the goal of having every child under the age of 10 plant at least one tree.
Olivia also is a very proud co-owner of the award-winning Gaia Retreat and Spa in the Hinterlands of New South Wales, Australia. Gaia recently celebrated its 10th anniversary and added 12 new international awards to their ever-growing list, including the prestigious “Best Boutique Hotel” and the “World’s Best Day Spa” at the World Spa Awards.
In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Her personal journey with cancer led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness Research Centre (ONJCWRC) in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia.
The center, which opened its doors in 2012, provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center (ONJCancerCentre.org).
Olivia’s appeal seems to be timeless. She recently finished her three-year Las Vegas residency “Summer Nights” at the Flamingo and was thrilled that a portion of every ticket sold to her concert benefited the Wellness Programs at the ONJCWRC.
Her latest acclaimed recording, “LIV ON,” a collaborative, inspiring new CD with friends Beth Nielsen Chapman and Amy Sky intended for those who wish to transcend loss while walking a journey toward newfound meaning and hope, was recently released to critical acclaim.
