The music world suffered an immense loss on Monday (Aug. 8), when news broke that Olivia Newton-John has died at age 73.

The pop icon, known for hits such as 1981’s “Physical” and for her role as Sandy in Grease, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 at the age of 43, and returned in 2013. In May 2019, she revealed that the disease had spread to her back.

Newton-John’s official Facebook page announced the news of her passing, writing in a statement, “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.”
