In 2012, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John recorded a version featuring jazz pianist Chick Corea as the title track for their Christmas album. It was the first new artistic work the pair had done together since they recorded the song "Take a Chance" for the 1983 film Two of a Kind
The idea for the project came when Newton-John sent a Christmas card to Travolta in which she mentioned "You're The One That I Want
" had just become the best-selling duet in pop music history. "From the moment we decided to do this, magic happened," said Travolta. "Everyone we contacted agreed to do it."
"It just fell into place," added Newton-John. "With our busy schedules, I don't know how we got it done. John and I have always connected. That's never gone away. When we' re together, we have a good laugh and feel bonded to one another. we've been through some amazing experiences together."
Proceeds from the album were donated by the pair to their respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
