We’ve got chills! They’re multiplying! And we’re looooosing control — because John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have apparently collaborated on a Christmas album that features special guests like Tony Bennett, Barbra Streisand, and Kenny G.

This is not a joke.

The album, This Christmas, marks the first time Grease‘s Sandy and Danny have recorded music together in nearly 35 years.

'Carrie' musical gets cast recording, behind-the-scenes video for 'In' - EXCLUSIVE

Back in 1988, the musical adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie—with music by Michael Gore, lyrics by Dean Pitchford, and a book by Lawrence D. Cohen—became the stuff of Broadway legend. After opening to acrid reviews, the show closed after only five performances, creating an $8 million hole that counts as one of the most expensive flops in the history of the Great White Way. With numbers that disastrous, an official cast recording was never in the cards.

Check out the exclusive premiere of the video for the show-opening number “In,” which features some behind-the-scenes footage of the cast working on the recording in the studio.  READ FULL STORY
