The sun finally broke through the cold, wet Melbourne morning in time to welcome Olivia Newton-John to the Bourke St Mall for her Mother's Day Concert for Myer.
Myer CEO Bernie Brookes, ably assisted by Myer Ambassador Jennifer Hawkins, presented Olivia with a cheque for $70,000 to help with the establishment of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre's wonderful new facility at the Austin Hospital.
Along with Jennifer Hawkins, other Myer Ambassadors Rebecca Twigley and Kris Smith rattled tins amongst the crowd raising even more funds to add to this wonderful total.
The city came to a halt while effervescent host Catriona Rowntree chatted to the thoroughly entertained 3,000 strong crowd.
A special treat was Juan Jackson, the star of Miss Saigon and The King and I, giving the first Australian public performance of "Till I Hear You Sing", the hit from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies.
The show also included a high octane performance by the cast of Fame featuring Timomatic and SYTYCD winner Talia Fowler and, whilst these acts wowed the crowd, it was Olivia they had come to see. Her performance accompanied by Chong Lim and his band was absolutely incredible.
Beginning with Xanadu and including a duet with James Reyne of "You're The One That I Want", Olivia held the crowd in the palm of her hand. Her encore "Grace and Gratitude" a song close to the heart of her charity, proved to be the perfect finish to a perfect day.
