OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN TO RELEASE NEW CONCERT CD AND DVD titleS ON JANUARY 15
2006 Concert with the Sydney Symphony Is Showcased On "Olivia's Live Hits" CD and "Olivia Newton-John And The Sydney Symphony (Live At The Sydney Opera House)" DVD
Hollywood, California – January 15, 2008 - With a career spanning more than four decades, Olivia Newton-John is one of the world's top entertainment stars, with international successes in the studio, on tour, on television and in films. In March 2006, Newton-John performed her most popular hits and songs near and dear to her heart with the Sydney Symphony at the historic Sydney Opera House.
On January 15, 2008, Capitol/EMI, in conjunction with ONJ Productions, will release new CD and DVD titles featuring Olivia's performances from that landmark musical celebration of her illustrious career. The CD, Olivia's Live Hits, features live performances of 10 Top 5 hits, including seven #1s, while the DVD, Olivia Newton-John And The Sydney Symphony (Live At The Sydney Opera House), showcases 27 of her hits and favorites spanning more than four decades. In addition, the two-hour DVD features a personal tour of some of Olivia's favorite spots in Sydney from the Harbor Bridge to Manly Beach, a vacation spot where she spent many summers as a child.
"This concert was very special to me as it combined my career as a singer with my personal roots growing up in Australia," said Olivia. "I had the honor of performing at the Opera House for the Queen, but this night was even more special as it gave me the chance to perform all of my hits in this historic building – it's hard to believe that I have been singing for so long!"
Olivia has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, has had more than ten #1 hit singles, received numerous Grammy, American Music, Billboard, Country Music and People's Choice Awards, and an Emmy Award for songwriting. She has also starred in numerous television shows, specials and motion pictures including Grease and Xanadu, both of which are currently experiencing new life as hits on Broadway.
In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in Grease catapulted Newton-John into superstardom. The film's popularity fueled the best-selling movie musical soundtrack in history, featuring the hits "You're The One That I Want" and "Summer Nights" with Travolta, as well as the mega-hit, "Hopelessly Devoted To You." To date the film remains the most successful movie musical of all time. Her other film credits include Xanadu, Two Of A Kind, It's My Party, and Sordid Lives. She will recreate her role in Sordid Lives for the forthcoming television series of the same name that will begin airing in 2008 on Logo.
Adored by millions of fans around the globe, Olivia's ongoing philanthropic efforts have remained a major focus as she continues to give back to the community through a variety of organizations. Among them is the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre, which will provide a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education training and research, including a wellness center for the mind, body and spirit.
Olivia's public, humanitarian and wellness related activities have always been of equal importance throughout her career. Lightbridge Media, the creators and producers of the "Healing Quest" branded television series (www.healingquest.tv) airing on PBS have announced that Newton-John will join the Company and its acclaimed series beginning in January 2008. As a new on-air co-host for the "Healing Quest" series, she will join Judy Brooks and Roy Walkenhorst, the founders of Lightbridge Media and the current on-air hosts in bringing programming that inspires, informs and empowers consumers to take responsibility for their health and well-being. Olivia will also contribute as a producer-at-large with the company across multiple media channels, producing stories on integrative and natural approaches to health from around the globe, as well as writing and recording some new music for "Healing Quest."
In addition, Olivia remains extremely active in the recording studio. Following the critical acclaim of her 2006 release, Grace and Gratitude, for which Billboard magazine said "Newton-John is soulfully committed to every word she sings, and fans will be taken with the plush arrangements, melodic warmth and, of course, the artist's regal vocals," Olivia has released Christmas Wish. The CD, featuring her signature vocals and stunning new arrangements of classic holiday favorites as well as new songs written by Olivia is available exclusively at all Target store locations through the holidays.
