With a career spanning more than five decades, Olivia Newton-John was born in Cambridge, England in 1948, the youngest child of Professor Brin Newton-John and Irene, daughter of Nobel Prize winning physicist, Max Born. Olivia moved to Melbourne, Australia with her family when she was five. Her first big break was winning a talent contest on a popular TV show, which earned Olivia a trip to London. By fifteen she had formed an all-girl group called Sol Four and, in 1963, Olivia was appearing on TV and pop music programs in Australia. Her U.S. album debut, "Let Me Be There," produced her first top ten single. The Academy Of Country Music honored her as Most Promising Female Vocalist and she received a Grammy Award as Best Country Vocalist. With more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia's successes include four Grammy Awards, numerous Country Music, American Music and People's Choice Awards, ten #1 hits including "Physical," which topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks, and over 15 top 10 singles. In November 2015, Billboard Magazine listed "Physical" at #8 on their Top 100 Songs Of All Time list and in 2010 listed it as "The Sexiest Song of All Time." In addition, in 2015 Olivia was ranked #20 on Billboard's "Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Artists."
In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in "Grease" catapulted Olivia 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. Her other feature film credits include "Funny Things Happen Down Under," "Toomorrow," "Xanadu," "Two Of A Kind," "It's My Party," "Sordid Lives," "Score: A Hockey Musical," and "A Few Best Men."
