Olivia Ong is a Singaporean singer who found success in Japan with English-language renditions of bossa nova classics.
"Let Me Be There" is a 1973 album by Olivia Newton-John. The American publication of this 1973 album by MCA Records used the cover art from Olivia's 1972 LP record "Olivia" which was not released by MCA. Some of its songs were taken for the U.S. publication, such as song titles from the British publications of the albums "If Not for You" and "Olivia". Though the title song was a commercial failure in England, it was Olivia Newton-John's first American Top Ten hit, successfully boosting her singing career in North America. She had previously charted in the Billboard Top 40 with the song "If Not for You".
Olivia Newton-John's Greatest Hits (1977) was the first compilation album released by Olivia Newton-John in the United States. (In some other regions, Newton-John released a 1974 compilation, First Impressions. This album was therefore marketed instead as Greatest Hits Vol. 2 and featured a different track listing.) The album collected all of Newton-John's American Top 40 singles released between 1971 and 1977. "Changes" was the only track not released as a single, but it was one of Newton-John's first self-written songs that she recorded. The album was Newton-John's first platinum certification peaking No. 13 Pop and No. 7 Country. It ended up being certified double Platinum in the US and Gold in the UK and in Hong Kong.
