Born in England in 1948, Olivia Newton-John was raised in Melbourne, Australia and got her start as a singer in her teens. Newton-John went to England in the mid-1960s and performed in clubs and on television. In the mid-1970s, Newton-John made a splash in the United States with her third solo album. The song “Let Me Be There” from that album won her the Grammy Award for best country female vocal performance—her first. More awards and successful albums followed. She scored hits on the country and pop charts with “Have You Never Been Mellow” and “I Honestly Love You,” which won the 1974 Grammy Award for record of the year. The release of the film adaptation of the successful Broadway musical Grease in 1978 made Newton-John an international star.
