She was pop culture's good girl gone just slightly bad. Born in Cambridge, England, Newton-John began her singing career at the age of 15 and was a frequent winner at local talent shows. She slowly climbed the show biz ladder charting a number of times in the UK and then in the US. But it wasn't until 1978 that she really became more than just another pretty face trying to make it big. After a chance meeting with John Travolta, who had been chosen as the male lead in the movie Grease, Travolta insisted that Olivia be given the part of Sandy. The film went on to become the biggest box office hit of that year and launched several songs that reached #1 on both U.S. and International charts. In the 90's, Olivia successfully overcame a battle with breast cancer, which inspired her self-penned and produced album, GAIA.
