Singer Olivia Newton-John died this morning at age 73 after her more than 30 year battle against breast cancer.

Her Husband John Easterling says she died peacefully at her ranch in Southern California surrounded by family and friends.

Her first song was a remake of George Harrison's "If Not For You," but the world made her a super star after hearing her 1973 song "Let Me Be There." Of course her big break came in 1978 starring opposite John Travolta in "Grease."

Her breast cancer went into remission but came back in 2013, then back in remission returning again 5 years ago.

She has one child, Chloe Rose, who is 14.

#RIP Olivia.

Below is a video I took when she came to Savannah in 2009 to perform at the Johnny Mercer Theater, We had the good fortune to have a contest to take our winners backstage to meet her. It's a video I haven't seen since then.
