Grace and Gratitude
Olivia Newton-John has been long respected as a singer, and on this intensely personal yet universal offering, she displays her fine talents as a song-writer, too. With lush, ethereal arrangements, and impeccable production by Amy Sky (who also co-writes several of the tracks)
This is an album which reveals its treasures to you layer by layer, listen after listen. Based on a meditative progression through the seven major chakras - energy centers in eastern philosophies - the songs are woven together with instrumental interludes to create an unbroken cycle of music which is nothing short of captivating. And what songs they are! As memorable as many of her biggest chart hits, jewels like Learn To Love Yourself, Grace and Gratitude, I Will Lift Up My Eyes, Pearls on a Chain, and the stunning Instrument Of Peace are worthy additions to the Olivia Newton-John repertoire. However, what stands out most on this album is the sheer luminosity of Olivias vocals ... light, strong, ethereal, earthy, soul-stirring, playful, serene, and full of power ... she can count her performances here amongst her finest work. Brilliant and beautiful - a must-have album.If you are looking for music that is meant to convey the emotions of the artist, then look no further. This is a must-have collection!A message from Olivia ... I am very proud to introduce you to my latest CD, GRACE AND GRATITUDE, so named for my appreciation of this incredible gift of life I have been blessed with! I hope these songs will help you to take time out of your busy life for relaxation or meditation. As a long-term cancer survivor, I have learned how important it is to take care of both my physical and emotional health. In my recovery, I became even more aware of the power of music. It can heal the body, calm the mind, and lift the spirit; but above all, it can connect us to our hearts. Listen to the sample tracks in our Jukebox. (opens in a new window).
