Besides being a huge, huge star and someone millions of fans throughout the world admired for her happy spirit, her dazzling smile, and the positive energy she radiated whenever she went, late singer and actress Olivia Newton-John was before everything else a mother.
Her daughter Chloe Lattanzi, who has inherited her mother’s beauty and music talent, and who is following into her footsteps, posted an incredibly touching video of the two performing the song Window in the Wall together. The song is a tribute of the love they felt for one another, and now it was shared on Instagram as a tribute to Newton-John, whom Chloe describes as the mother everyone wishes for.
“Has this world forgotten how to love,” the lyrics read. “Are we blinded by the hate we leave inside? No one is giving in or giving up. The lines are drawn and there is no compromise. This isn’t who we are…”
In the Instagram caption, Chloe wrote, “You are my lighthouse mama. My safe place. My heart space. It has been my honor and continues to be my honor to be your baby and best friend. You are an angel on earth and everyone touched by you has been blessed. I love you forever my life-giver, my teacher, my mama.”
Olivia Newton-John passed away on monday, August 8, after a lengthy battle with breast cancer. It was her husband who shared the devastating news on the social media.
“Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time,” the statement began.
“Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the @onjfoundation.”
In the past, newton-John spoke of her relationship with Chloe and said the two were very close and that bond became even stronger during the pandemic when they spent most of their time together.
“I worked my whole life, and the longest period I can remember being home was my pregnancy with Chloe and the first year or two of her life. So it’s been wonderful reconnecting with my baby. She is my reason to be.”
Newton-John was diagnosed with cancer three times during her life and she battled the disease for many, many years. In an interview with A Life of Greatness podcast, Newton-John spoke of her diagnosis and how she contemplated her death.
“I have quite a few times,” she said, adding that it was “sooner than I would have wanted. I mean — we all know we are going to die. I think we spend our lives probably much in denial of it.”
“What I feel about it is extremely personal, so I find it hard to put into words. I believe that we are all part of one thing,” Newton-John continued.
“I’ve had experiences with — how can I put it? — spirits or spirit life or felt the spirit world or have heard things that I believe there is something that happens. It’s almost like we are parts of a big computer and we go back to the main battery. I don’t have a definite definition of what it is. Some people call it ‘heaven.’ Some call it ‘the universe.’ I just think there is a great knowingness out there that we become part of.”
In that same interview, she shared her thoughts about afterlife saying that all versions of what people believe afterlife to be “seem to have the same ending. Either we come back as something else or we go to heaven or we join others in the spirit world. But most humans want to believe that we go on.”
“I don’t know if that is so,” she continued. ”I hope that I can let people know when it happens if it is.”
Rest in Peace, Olivia Newton-John.
