Overview

Olivia Newton-John's Grace and Gratitude is inspired by her belief that music has the power to heal by calming our minds, lifting our spirits, and connecting to our hearts. Named for Olivia's appreciation for the gift of life, Grace and Gratitude contains more than 20 tracks intended for relaxation and healing. As an 18-year breast cancer "thriver," Olivia has learned the importance of physical and emotional health, and especially the power of music. Research has shown that music can lower stress hormones, slow down brain waves, and actually boost the body's own healing process.

Co-written by the album's producer, Amy Sky, the lyrics acknowledge a variety of belief systems, including Tibetan chants, prayers from Judaism and Islam, and a poem from St. Francis of Assisi. Together, Olivia and Amy took the chakras of the body as the basis for each song on the CD. Each chakra is connected to a sacred truth that reflects your pshycological, emotional, and spiritual well-being. From the Label

Olivia's vocals are so amazing on this album! I can't believe she waited so long to get in to this (New Age) type of music. Suits her perfectly. The instrumental interludes between tracks keep the album flowing from one song to the next perfectly. It's got a great Eastern sound throughout with sitar and chants. My new favorite CD!

Without a doubt, one of Olivia's most unique albums, and one that I would have worn out if it still were the age of vinyl.
