On Monday, Olivia Newton-John died at 73, following a battle with cancer.

Newton-John grew up in the capital of the Australian state of Victoria, Melbourne. On Thursday, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews tweeted that he was “pleased that Olivia [Newton-John’s] family have accepted our offer of a State Memorial Service.”

Andrews added, “We’re working with Olivia’s family on the details, but it will be more of a concert than a funeral — fitting for a Victorian who lived such a rich and generous life.”

I’m so pleased that Olivia Newtown John’s family has accepted our offer of a State Memorial Service.

Newton-John’s niece Totti Goldsmith told the Australian news program “A Current Affair” previously that the family had accepted the offer.

The “Physical” singer’s husband, John Easterling, and only child Chloe Lattanzi shared tributes to the beloved wife and mother on social media this week.

“Our love for each other transcends our understanding,” Easterling, who married Newton-John in 2008, wrote on Instagram on Wednesday. “Every day we expressed our gratitude for this love that could be so deep, so real, so natural. We never had to ‘work’ on it. We were in awe of this great mystery and accepted the experience of our love as past, present and forever.”

A day prior, Lattanzi, Newton-John’s daughter with ex-husband Matt Lattanzi, shared a clip of a duet she and her mother sang, “Window in the Wall.”

“You are my lighthouse mama. My safe place. My heart space,” she wrote in the caption. “It has been my honor and continues to be my honor to be your baby and best friend. You are an angel on earth and everyone touched by you has been blessed. I love you forever my life giver, my teacher, my mama.”
