Olivia Newton-John OA-OBE (Cambridge, 26 septimber 1948) is in Britsk sjongster en aktrise.

Biografy[bewurkje seksje | edit source]

Doe't sy fiif jier wie ferfarre sy mei har âlden nei Austraalje. Olivia is in pakesizzer fan Max Born (winner fan de Nobelpriis foar de Natuerkunde yn 1954).

Yn de jierren 60 gie Newton-John werom nei Grut-Brittanje. Yn 1970, mei 21 jier, sette sy har muzikale karriêre útein yn de band Toomorrow, de namme ôflaat fan har twadde film Toomorrow. De groep hie net safolle súkses, mar it slagge Newton-John wol rillegau in solokarriêre te begjinnen. Sy skoarde har earste hit yn 1971 mei it Bob Dylan-nûmer If not for you. Sy hie yn dy snuorje ferkearing mei Bruce Welch, gitarist fan The Shadows en trede op yn de wyklikse show fan Cliff Richard.

Olivia kaam foar it Feriene Keninkryk út op it 19e Eurofyzjesjongfestival, op 6 april 1974 in Brighton, Ingelân. Fan de 17 lannen dy't meidienen wûn Sweden mei 24 punten mei it nûmer Waterloo, útfierd troch ABBA. Olivia einige op it 4e plak mei 14 punten. De plaat kaam op in 11e plak yn de Britske hitlist. Yn 1974 wie se ien fan de meast populêre sjongsters fan Grut-Brittanje.

In skofte letter ferhuze sy nei de Feriene Steaten. Ek dêr krige hja in súksesfolle sjongkarriêre; sy skoarde fiif nûmer-1 hits en wûn fjouwer Grammy Awards.

As aktrise waard sy tige ferneamd troch har haadrol, neist John Travolta, yn de film Grease. Lettere films dêr't sy yn meidie hiene lang safolle súkses net. Sy hie noch wol in nûmer-1 hit yn Nederlân mei Xanadu, de titelsong fan de film mei deselde namme, dêr't sy yn spile mei ûnder oaren Gene Kelly en Michael Beck. De muzyk yn dy film wie fan ELO (Electric Light Orchestra). Ien fan de lieten wie 'Suddenly', in duet mei Cliff Richard.

Newton-John hat tusken 1984 en 1995 troud west mei Matt Lattanzi; sy hawwe in dochter, Chloe (1986).

Yn 1992 krige se boarstkanker, dêr't sy better fan wurden is. Sûnt 1996 wenne sy mei kameraman Patrick McDermott, dy't yn 2005 samar ynienen fuort rekke by it fiskjen. Der wurdt lykwols oannaam dat McDermott noch libbet.[1]
