In an interview with Extra, John Travolta talked about his new music video with Olivia Newton-John; “We’re driving in a ’55 T-Bird and we’re dressed kind of like we were then… at the end of the video we are going off in the car like we did in ‘Grease.’
John and Olivia, who played Danny and Sandy in the cult classic Grease almost 35 years ago, paired up again to work on not only the video, but also an album titled This Christmas. Stars such as Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett also perform on the album. The proceeds of the project will all go to Jett Travolta Foundation, in honor of Travolta’s late son who passed away in 2009, and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center, who celebrated her 20th cancer free year.
“We were friends for all this time, and I think that speaks for itself. There’s nothing more magical than feeling bonded together,” John said about his collaboration with Olivia.
John also felt magic in the participation of the other performers; “Every time I heard [our guest vocalists'] voices with our voices I cried,” Travolta said. “Their sentiment toward my son and toward Olivia’s hospital — the whole thing meant so much to me.”
