The Chicks are paying tribute to Olivia Newton-John by performing one of the late singer’s most beloved hits.
On Saturday, Aug. 13, the band delivered a rendition of “Hopelessly Devoted to You” as part of their concert in Washington.
“We lost a worldwide sweetheart last week, Olivia Newton-John,” said Natalie Maines. “I thought I was Olivia Newton-John from like 4 to 12, and then I just wished I was Olivia Newton-John. So we worked up today at soundcheck a little Olivia Newton-John song.”
Newton-John originally performed the song in the movie version of “Grease”, which hit screens in 1978.
Newton-John’s husband, John Easterling, broke the news of her passing in a heartfelt tribute shared to Instagram on Monday, Aug. 8, writing alongside a photo of the actress, “Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends.”
