Released in 1978, the romantic drama Grease changed the face of musicals in cinema and gave us the iconic duo of Danny and Sandy. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John successfully ingrained themselves in the minds of people as the evergreen romantic dancing duo who serenaded us through their exceptional vocals. Unfortunately, that era has now come to an end with the demise of Olivia Newton-John at the age of 73.
As per a report from TMZ, the veteran singer and actor died at a ranch in Southern California Monday morning. According to her husband, John Easterling, she passed away peacefully whilst surrounded by her family and friends. Although the specific cause of her death is still unknown, the outlet reported that the actor passed away after battling metastatic breast cancer for 30 years.
Following her death, condolences and tributes poured in on social media as fans mourned the death of the Grammy award-winning singer. Grease co-star John Travolta also took to his social media to share a heartfelt tribute to the late star as he penned, ”My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better. Your impact was incredible. I love you so much. We will see you down the road and we will all be together again. Yours from the first moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John!”
On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra shared a heartfelt note on a tribute for Olivia Newton-John. Check out her Instagram story and other tweets paying tribute to the late star.
