For one night night only, the standing room only nightclub was transformed into a modern-day Xanadu, complete with stilt walkers, roller skaters and 80s themed dancers and performers for the premiere of Olivia and her aspiring singer daughter's new dance single,You Have to Believe”, inspired by Olivia’s #1 hit “Magic” from the film “Xanadu” , on the anniversary of the film's release, 35 years ago.The still radiant and pretty 66 year old Newton-John arrived at the event in jeans and a white shirt worn under a glittery silver and white striped long sweater while the 29 year old Lattanzi dazzled in a gold and white bustier and mini-skirt.

Chloe has re-written the verse while Olivia sings the iconic song’s familiar chorus, “You have to believe we are magic….” The music video, produced by TalkBoy TV, was filmed on location at Share Nightclub earlier this year and was available on iTunes beginning Tuesday, August 11th.
Among the guests in attendance were video cameo artists and Vegas talent, James Davis and Staceyy Robinson from Chippendales, Larry Edwards from Divas Las Vegas, and song producer Dave Audé, who was the featured DJ for the launch event.
Chloe, a former brunette turned blonde, is Newton-John's only child, from her marriage to first husband Matt Lattanzi from 1984-1995.
