November 17 Nashville, TN Concert in benefit of Operation Smile
A number of stars came together to perform at this concert in benefit of Operation Smile. After a long hiatus Olivia was singing live again - a treat for fans in 1997. We had last heard Olivia in the Physical concerts in 1983! Olivia sounded good, she got standing ovations from a large body of Olivia fans at the show, and stayed behind for a couple of hours to pose for photos with fans and to sign autographs. She sang "Please Mr Please", "I Honestly Love You", and "You're The One That I Want" with Vince Gill.
Local radio station interview where Olivia was surprised at the number of fans from all over the world to hear her live after many years. This was one of the early successes of the internet getting the word out on the ONJ mailing list
