The 59-year-old pop diva who is in Malaysia for the first time to do a one-night concert in Genting Highlands, was kind enough to donate RM200,000 from the collection of her concert tickets to the funds for the National Women Games 2007, through its organizer, Jojo Events.
According to the Treasurer of WSFFM, Datin Seri Shariffa Sabrina Syed Akil, the collection would indeed assist WSFFM in making the Games a more memorable one this year. The 2nd National Women Games will be held from the 1st to 9th of June, next month.
Dressed in white, Olivia looked beautiful as she fielded questions from the media and fans at the Hard Rock Café here, ahead of her concert at the Arena of Stars on April 29.
“I work out a lot and I think I have good genes. I try to eat healthy, stay away from dairy products and take rice and soy, although I must confess I had a piece of cake earlier – I just could not resist it!”, she said when asked how she managed to retain her youthful appearance through the years.
Olivia said she spent a lot of her time now raising funds for humanitarian causes, including promoting public awareness on breast cancer and is also in the process of setting up the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre in her hometown, Melbourne.
Her latest album, Grace and Gratitude, touches on her personal experience of spiritual, physical and emotional healing.
“It is very, very exciting to be here and I am excited about the show. I also hope to see a bit of your very exciting city after the show”.
The Olivia Newton-John concert is presented by Jojo Events and LiteFM.
