Kelly & Michael: Olivia Newton-John This Christmas Review
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John reunited for a new holiday album, This Christmas. The rehearsal process for this holiday collaboration meant friends and family got in on the fun. How did they fit in production of this Christmas recording along with all their other obligations and commitments?
Last year, Olivia texted John to congratulate him on their bestselling Grease duet, “You’re The One That I Want.” That was where the idea sparked, and a year later, here they are with a complete album for their favorite charities.

The viral video for “I Think You Might Like It” was shot quickly on John Travolta’s property, telling the story of the song.
