Olivia died August 8th at the age of 73. She valiantly fought cancer for decades.
Olivia once talked about the movie “Grease” changed her life.She said, "It represented a lot of opportunities in my life and in my career... of being seen in maybe countries that my music hadn't reached and opened up film to me and also changed my style of music in a way, because in the end, when I play Sandy Two as I call her, I get to sing a little more hard-edged song that opened up my career to... changing my image as they call it, a little bit. It's so I could sing 'Physical' and 'Totally Hot' and songs like that that I hadn't sung before."
