From Olivia: "Grace and Gratitude" was written at a time in my life when I needed some personal healing. I have always turned to music, meditation and prayer to guide me. I believe that healing starts with an attitude of gratitude, and even in my darkest hours I tried to remember all that I have to be grateful for."
In these past four years the universe heard me and has restored joy, health and love into my life. I awoke to the love of my life, my husband John Easterling, and my seven year journey to launch the ONJ Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia has finally come to fruition.
I have been very touched by the response to the words and music of "Grace and Gratitude" and have had the privilege of sharing it in concert with many of you since its first release. I am so excited that my new friends at Green Hill and EMI are going to make this music available everywhere.
With "Grace and Gratitude Renewed", I want to bring some of the happy energy I have been blessed with these past few years, to this revisited collection. I have resung several of the songs, and invited a few dear friends to sing with me. My producer, co-writer and dear friend Amy Sky and I were inspired to write a new song, "Help Me To Heal" - I love it and hope you do too!
Yours in love and light,Olivia

About The Album
Olivia Newton-John's Grace and Gratitude is inspired by her belief that music has the power to heal by calming our minds, lifting our spirits, and connecting to our hearts. Named for Olivia's appreciation for the gift of life, Grace and Gratitude contains more than 20 tracks intended for relaxation and healing. As an 18-year breast cancer "thriver," Olivia has learned the importance of physical and emotional health, and especially the power of music. Research has shown that music can lower stress hormones, slow down brain waves, and actually boost the body's own healing process.
Co-written by the album's producer, Amy Sky, the lyrics acknowledge a variety of belief systems, including Tibetan chants, prayers from Judaism and Islam, and a poem from St. Francis of Assisi. Together, Olivia and Amy took the chakras of the body as the basis for each song on the CD. Each chakra is connected to a sacred truth that reflects your pshycological, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
