NEW YORK (AP) — Olivia Newton-John, the superstar singer who was everyone’s favorite Sandy in “Grease,” has died.

She was 73.

Her husband said she died Monday at her California ranch. Newton-John reigned on pop, country, adult contemporary and dance charts with record sales that topped 100 million. Her fast-stepping duet with John Travolta “You’re the One That I Want” and the bouncy, R-rated smash “Physical” were some of the era’s biggest songs. She had 14 top 10 singles just in the U.S. and won four Grammys.

Her husband said she was a symbol of hope after sharing her journey with breast cancer.
