“I am so excited to come home for these two important fundraisers for the Wellness Centre! Melbourne is so supportive … and I am so grateful that Melbournians recognise the significance of the wellness programs we provide at the ONJCWC. I am so delighted that these are now part of Melbourne’s annual events – not only do they raise much-needed funds but they are always so much fun! This year I am so thrilled to be joined by my long time friend Barry Gibb. I am such a huge fan and it will be such a pleasure to be able to share the stage with him again,” said Olivia.

“It’s a joy and an honor to come back to Melbourne and take the stage with Olivia once again. Singing with her is always an incredible experience and to do it for such a great cause makes it all the more special,” remarked Barry Gibb.
