Featuring songs from all pivotal moments of Olivia Newton-John’s prestigious career, including songs from the films Grease and Xanadu, I HONESTLY LOVE YOU also features two stunning duets from Olivia Newton-John and Delta Goodrem – ‘Love is a Gift’ and ‘Let Me Be There’.
In Australia, ‘Physical’ was a #1 ARIA Single; in the U.S, it was a US Billboard Hot 100 Single for 10 weeks and is certified 2x platinum; ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’ was nominated for an Oscar for ‘Best Original Song’; ‘You’re The One That I Want’ has become one of the best-selling singles of all time, with over 6 million units sold worldwide; and ‘Magic’ was a #1 US Billboard Hot 100 Single for 4 weeks.
“I couldn’t think of anyone better to play my life,” states Newton-John. “I respect Delta as a person and as an artist. I love her voice; she has an amazing range, and whoa, she does things vocally that just take my breath away.
“When we wrote ‘Love Is A Gift’, we wrote it as a love song. Now, when [Delta and I] sing it, it’s about friendship and love between friends. And so it still has the same meaning; it’s just a different time for the song.”
“Having Olivia as a friend for all these years has been such an incredible gift. From a young age, she was an artist I admired and looked up to,” Delta reveals. On the song, ‘Love Is A Gift’, Goodrem states, “I love the sentiment of this song – the lyrics just hit me and the simplicity of the message saying love is a gift.”

The talented performer has achieved in excess of 23 x platinum sales, 4 #1 albums, 9 #1 singles, 17 top 10 hits, 16 ARIA Awards, a Silver Logie Award & 3 World Music Awards.
