Melbourne Turns Pink In Tribute To Olivia Newton-John

Sky News Australia reports:

Premier Daniel Andrews turned several Melbourne landmarks – including Flinders Street Station, Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Arts Centre – pink on Tuesday night as an acknowledgement of Olivia Newton-John’s “enormous contribution” to the state.

“Tonight, landmarks across our city will be lit up pink to remember Olivia Newton-John, and her enormous contribution to cancer awareness, research and treatment,” Mr Andrews said. “She took her cancer journey and used that to save lives and change lives, and that’s just a deeply impressive thing.”

When asked about offering a state funeral, the Premier said he would be respectful of Newton-John’s family. “As for celebrating her life … her music and film and all the other amazing contributions that she made, we would, of course, want to speak to the family and be as respectful as we can,” Mr Andrews said.
