Newton entered and on a talent contest on the television programme ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’ hosted by 1960s Australian icon Johnny O’Keefe.
In 1966 she recorded her first single “Till You Say You’ll Be Mine”. In 1971 she released her first solo album ‘If Not For You’.
Olivia Newton John and Pat Carroll
Olivia and Pat Carroll are duet partners and they first met when Newton appeared on ‘The Go!Show’. They later formed a duo called “Pat and Olivia” and toured nightclubs in Europe. Carroll returned to Australia after her visa expired leaving to pursue solo work until 1975.
In 1983 they reunited and founded ‘Koala Blue’. The store, originally for Australian imports, evolved into a chain of women’s clothing boutiques. The chain was initially successful, but it eventually declared bankruptcy and closed in 1992.
Olivia Newton John Cancer
In 1992 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she was treated and recovered and since became an advocate for breast cancer research and other health issues.
She is a spokesperson for the Liv-Kit, a breast self examination product and a partial owner of the Gaia Retreat and Spa in Byron Bay, New South Wales.
She became the National Spokesperson for the Colette Chuda Environmental Fund/CHEC, Children’s Health Environmental Coalition, in 1991 following the death of our-year-old Colette Chuda, a family friend, from cancer.
In 2008 she raised funds to help build the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
Newton was featured in UniGlobe Entertainment’s breast cancer docu-drama, 1 a Minute, released in October 2010 alongside other celebrities who had survived breast cancer or who were affected by the disease.
In May 2017 it was announced that Newton-John’s breast cancer had returned and metastasized to her lower back.
On 9th September 2018 during an appearance on Channel 7’s Sunday Night she revealed that she has cancer at the base of her spine. She said she was treating it naturally and also using modern medicine. She said she has undergone radiation treatment, cut out sugar and takes cannabis oil for the pain — something she hopes will become legal in Australia.
“In California it’s legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes. So he [her husband] makes me tinctures. It’s hard to say, they help with pain. I’m very lucky that I live in a state where it’s legal and that I have a husband that is a plant-medicine man. My dream is that, in Australia soon, it will be available to all the cancer patients and people going through cancer that causes pain.”
