In a Twitter post, Andrews said he had spoken with Newton-John’s family and that they had accepted the offer for a state ceremony. “It will be more of a concert than a funeral – fitting for a Victorian who lived such a rich and generous life,” Andrews said. The details are yet to be finalised.
The UK-born Newton-John moved to Australia at the age of 5 and soon became one of the country’s most loved celebrities.
Newton-John survived two bouts of breast cancer, one in the early 1990s, the other in 2017. In September 2018 she revealed that she was once again fighting cancer, this time at the base of her spine.
Despite his struggles, Newton-John maintained a positive outlook.
“With more and more people affected by cancer every day, I believe we are in a world desperate for treatment, and I am committed to doing whatever I can to help.”
After his death, the organization said in a statement that Newton-John’s “generous support and gifts provided hope and changed the lives of thousands of cancer patients.”
Newton-John’s death caused a wave of mourning for fans who followed his career from “Grease” to his Las Vegas concert residency, while those who had worked with him for years shared memories and condolences on social media. Of.
