7News Spotlight
Sunday, 8.30pm

7NEWS Spotlight will pay tribute to the extraordinary life force of Dame Olivia Newton-John, in a special event episode to air this Sunday, 8.30pm on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Bee Gees great Barry Gibb, UK music veteran Cliff Richard and her pop protégé Delta Goodrem share their intimate and heartfelt memories of the late songbird, actor and activist, who died this week after a determined and purposeful three-decade battle with breast cancer.

In a moving interview with the global superstar never seen before, Olivia shares the sentimental details of the final resting place in Australia she chose for herself before her tragic death.

As part of her legacy of ‘love and light,’ the 73-year-old’s passing will be marked by a magical musical tribute from the female singers she inspired – in an unforgettable performance of one of her biggest hits, ‘I Honestly Love You’ starring Wendy Matthews, Dami Im, Katie Noonan and Samantha Jade.

Matthews, who topped the charts when her single, ‘The Day You Went Away’ memorialised the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, will help cover ONJ’s breakout single; while The X Factor winner Dami Im has agreed to break from her maternity leave to lend her voice to the special, in homage to her idol.

Feel the ‘magic’ and share in this uplifting and emotional farewell to our ‘Livvy.’

Three years ago, Olivia invited 60 Minutes to her ranch in Southern California for what turned out to be one of her last Australian interviews. And it was there Liz Hayes saw what a beautiful mother daughter bond Olivia and Chloe shared.
