In 1978, Olivia Newton-John’s co-starring role with John Travolta in “Grease” catapulted her into super-stardom. This film’s best-selling soundtrack featured the duets "You’re The One That I Want" and "Summer Nights," with Travolta, as well as her mega-hit, "Hopelessly Devoted To You." To date “Grease” remains the most successful movie musical in history.
With her current and ongoing projects and philanthropic endeavors, Olivia’s worldwide popularity is as strong as ever!
