This week saw the passing of beloved singer, actor, and performer Olivia Newton-John, best known for her role in classic film Grease. Newton-John passed at the age of 73 of spinal cancer at her Southern California ranch. Since her passing, fans have memorialized Newton-John both online and in real life, with numerous people offering well-wishes to her surviving family.

While the precise details of the memorial service have yet to be finalized, Australian citizens seem excited by the prospect. Recently, the famous Sydney Opera House, lit its iconic roof in pink lights in Newton-John’s honor, particularly in regards to her contributions to cancer research.
