A tribute to the late Olivia Newton-John has been made by Mariah Carey. Carey posted pictures on social media of the two of them singing together after learning of the renowned singer and Grease star's passing at the age of 73.

“I first fell in love with Olivia’s voice when I was a little girl and heard ‘I Honestly Love You,'” Carey tweeted on Monday. “Songs like ‘Magic,’ ‘Suddenly’ and ‘Have You Never Been Mellow’ showcased her beautiful airy tone and signature sound. And THEN there was GREASE. I was obsessed.”

“I dressed up as Bad Sandy for Halloween in 5th grade and thought I was everything,” Carey wrote. “Years later, THE Olivia Newton-John walked out onto my stage in Melbourne, Australia and we sang our hearts out together to ‘Hopelessly Devoted To You.’ This is a moment I will never ever forget.”

Carey concluded her tribute by sharing more photos of them together. “I was also blessed to be in her presence on many other occasions and she was one of the kindest, most generous and lovely people I’ve ever met,” she wrote. “She will be missed. She will be remembered. She will be loved. Olivia, I honestly love you.”
