Mariah Carey shared a touching tribute to her idol, Olivia Newton-John, following the actress and singer’s death on Monday.
Mariah recalled that she “fell in love with Olivia’s voice when I was a little girl and heard “I Honestly Love You.”
“And THEN there was GREASE. I was obsessed,” she added revealing that she dressed up one Halloween as Olivia’s character, Bad Sandy, when she was in 5th grade.
“Years later, THE Olivia Newton-John walked out onto my stage in Melbourne, Australia and we sang our hearts out together to “Hopelessly Devoted to You.” This is a moment I will never ever forget,” she said alongside a video of the performance.
Olivia Newton-John passed away on Monday (8-8) after a long battle with breast cancer.
