She would have turned 74 today. Olivia Newton-John (7373) became famous together with John Travolta (68) in the film “Grease”.

Then she was able to overcome the disease before in 2017 she was found to have metastases in her spine. A year later, the singer had another recurrence of breast cancer. In August 2022, she finally lost the fight and died as a result of illness. However, she will never be forgotten by fans.
