Olivia Newton-John, Amy Sky and Beth Nielsen Chapman will perform music from their latest album, LIV ON, at the Lobero Theatre on April 25, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. Produced by Rod Lathim and Thomas Rollerson, in partnership with Visiting Nurse and Hospice Care, the performance is a chance for emotional healing— a gift of love— that also will promote well-being and fun.
As Santa Barbara has been affected by the devastating fires and mudslides, and with other tragedies in the country such as the shooting in Florida, the artists’ hope is that their music can serve as an aid and opportunity to heal. “Igniting with the fires, then the mudslides and continued with the shootings in Florida, my heart has been heavy for the depth of pain people have endured though all this recent loss,” expresses manager Thomas Rollerson. “Grief links all human beings together…No one is spared. Music also links all human beings. Last year I had the privilege of working with Olivia Newton John, Amy Sky and Beth Chapman in supporting their new album Liv On. The intention of this album was to bring comfort to those in grief. As we clean up and rebuild our community, aid our businesses, workers, homeowners, evacuees there is no denying that our emotional recovery may be the most painful of all. We join a nation mourning and reevaluating how our voices are heard to shape and protect our country”
Singer/Songwriter/Producer Amy Sky has written songs for Diana Ross, Olivia Newton-John, and Reba McEntire, just to name a few artists. She has been nominated for multiple Juno awards, and won in 1988 for Best New Artist.
Olivia Newton-John, who famously starred in Grease with John Travolta, is a CMA, People’s Choice, and four-time Emmy Award winning singer/song-writer, entrepreneur and activist.
