In Remembrance Of Olivia Newton-John, Australian Landmarks Glow Pink

Olivia Newton-John, the singer and “Grease” actress who passed away on Monday in the United States, will be remembered by the Sydney Opera House turning pink on Wednesday.

In honor of the performer who was born in the United Kingdom but rose to fame as one of Australia’s most beloved celebrities, other Australian landmarks such as Optus Stadium in Perth and Flinders Street railway station in Melbourne lit up pink on Tuesday night.

Dan Andrews, the premier of the Victorian state, stated that the action was done “to remember Olivia Newton-John and her enormous contribution to cancer awareness, research, and treatment.”

Aside from Fed Square in the heart of Melbourne’s city, Newton-image John’s was also projected onto the building’s side.

Early in the 1990s and again in 2017, Newton-John battled breast cancer twice but came out on the other side. She revealed that she was battling cancer once more in September 2018; this time, it was at the base of her spine. Newton-John kept a cheerful disposition despite her difficulties. The Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre, which opened in Melbourne in 2012, quotes her on its website: “I believe that when you go through something difficult, even something as dramatic as cancer, that something positive will come out of it.”

We live in a world that is desperately in need of healing, and with more and more people getting cancer every day, I’m committed to doing everything I can to help. Newton-“generous John’s support and gift provided hope and changed the lives of thousands of cancer patients,” the organization said in a statement following her passing.

After Newton-John passed away, Andrews promised to discuss the possibility of a state funeral with her family. They intended to give their approval, Newton-niece John’s Tottie Goldsmith later revealed to CNN affiliate Nine Network. Through his tears, Goldsmith said, “I think Australia needs it.” “She’s very adored. We’re going to accept that because I believe our nation needs it.”

The premier’s office has not yet disclosed or verified the specifics of the funeral. If one is held, it will be the second state funeral this month for an Australian singer. The lead vocalist of The Seekers, Judith Durham, who passed away on August 5 at the age of 79, will receive a state funeral from the Victorian government.
