She was beloved by generations all over the world.
And now her millions of fans will get the chance to celebrate the life of Olivia Newton-John at the superstar’s state memorial.
The Herald Sun has published details ahead of the star-studded farewell, which will be held in Melbourne at Hamer Hall on Sunday.
Those attending the service have been asked to wear ‘a touch of orange,’ Olivia’s favourite colour, in honour of the star.
Hosted by Channel Nine’s David Campbell, the event will be a fitting tribute to the Grease star’s sixty years as a recording star and actress as well as her achievements as an advocate for cancer research.

Among the tributes, fans will hear singer Bumpy perform a song by Olivia called Grace and Gratitude.
Recorded in 2006, the obscure tune contains the lyrics, ‘All I have and all I feel, is all because of you, all I reap is all I sow, and love is our living proof.
‘Thank you for life, thank you for everything, I stand here in grace and gratitude, and thank you.’
The Noongar artist will perform the song alongside pianist Jake Amy.
Olivia’s health and charity service will be recognised by tributes from Professor Mattias Ernst, and Debbie Shiell, from the ONJ Cancer Wellness and Research Centre.
The Christ Church Grammar School Choir will perform the Australian national anthem at the memorial and Aunty Di Kerr will conduct the Welcome to Country.
And in a unique arrangement, Channel Nine, Channel Seven and the ABC will all broadcast the service.
