Easterling also added in his post this comment about Newton-John as a singer and her courage, too. “At Olivia’s deepest essence she was a healer using her mediums of song, of words, of touch,” he wrote. “She was the most courageous woman I’ve ever known. Her bandwidth for genuinely caring for people, for nature and all creatures almost eclipses what is humanely possible. It is only the grace of God that has allowed me to share the depth and passion of her being for so long. In her most difficult times she always had the spirit, the humor, and the will power to move things into the light.”
The late singer’s husband also had comments that he shared on Monday after Newton-John died.

Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.” Easterling would ask for privacy in his complete statement. Also, he would request people make donations to the fund instead of sending flowers.
