John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, stars of the movie Grease, just appeared together on TV Guide's "Rove LA" to promote their Christmas CD. Answering a studio audience member's request, the duo taught host Rove McManus and the fan how to do the "Hand Jive". Watch below!The duo have combined their iconic voices for their new Christmas album "This Christmas", available now from Universal Music Enterprises. A true labor of love made specifically for "the giving season," Travolta and Newton-John will donate the artist proceeds from the album equally to their respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
Produced by veteran keyboardist/arranger/orchestrator Randy Waldman, This Christmas is the audio equivalent of those classic network TV specials hosted from the stars' homes, an intimate, warm set of traditional holiday songs from an all-star lineup that includes Barbra Streisand ("I'll Be Home for Christmas"), Tony Bennett and the Count Basie Orchestra ("Winter Wonderland"), James Taylor ("Deck the Halls"), Chick Corea ("This Christmas"), Kenny G ("Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"), Cliff Richard ("Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas") and the original "I Think You Might Like It" by writer/producer John Farrar.
