This thoughtful and insightful interview by 60 Minutes Australia with pop music icon, Olivia Newton-John last night in Australia.
In addition to being a fan, I'm lucky to count Olivia as a friend. She was very supportive during my own cancer journey, and this in depth interview highlights some of the work she's done on behalf of those affected by cancer.
The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Center not only treats the bodies of cancer patients, but the mind and spirit as well with wellness programs like meditation, yoga, art and music therapies and more. Over the past decade, Olivia has helped raise over $200 million to make the center a reality.
She also discusses other aspects of her life: her husband, John; her daughter, Chloe; "the pants" from Grease; and yes, the disappearance of Patrick McDermott over a decade ago.
It's a really good, balanced look at a superstar who's has remained centered and clear-eyed about who she is and what she has to offer a changing world.
Her new album, written and recorded with Amy Sky and Beth Neilsen Chapman - LIV ON - drops October 7th.
And here's a "web bonus" from 60 Minutes Australia:
