She was not only an Australian treasure, but loved and adored all around the world.

And this was proven at Olivia Newton-John’s memorial, as a long list of well known names either attended the service, or sent in a special video message, including the likes of Nicole Kidman and Dolly Parton.

On Sunday at 4pm, fans, friends and family of Olivia converged for a special state-hosted celebration of ONJ’s live at the Hammer Hall Arts Centre.

Olivia’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi and husband John Easterling were the two who were the closest to Olivia, and they both spoke, giving emotional tributes to the wife and mother.
