Let's get PHYSICAL! With an acoustic version of her worldwide smash hit song before embarking on her four kilometre Wellness Walk around Ivanhoe, the lovely Olivia Newton-John hit the stage with Tottie Goldsmith (Chantoozies) and brother Brett Goldsmith on acoustic guitar. "Let me hear your body talk!"

Singing sensation Olivia Newton-John got physical and donned her exercise gear to take part in an event to raise money for a hospital named in her honour.
Attending the event with her husband, John Easterling, Newton-John led a wellness walk through the streets of Ivanhoe on Sunday to raise money for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Heidelberg, in Melbourne.
Addressing the crowd, Newton-John said support from friends and family helped her battle breast cancer in 1992.
"It's important to support a person suffering from cancer with wellness. It does more than just treating cancer, it's about providing care for the whole person body, mind and spirit," Newton-John said.
"It shows people that there is a way to wellness through cancer. It is an amazing feeling to see a dream become a reality. This is the start of something wonderful."
Newton-John performed her hit song Physical, to a sea of cheering fans dressed in green t-shirts marking the start of the 4km walk to the wellness centre.
Mayor Wayne Phillips said it was an honour to host the "down-to-earth megastar".
"To have a person like Olivia so committed after her own troubles is just fantastic," Mr Phillips said.
Newton-John cut a GREEN (not pink) ribbon to open the wellness walk and afterwards planted a remembrance pinwheel at the centre.
The $189 million Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre was opened by the celebrity in June last year.
