"Grease" brings back classic rock 'n' roll sounds with tunes such as "We Go Together," "Summer Nights" and "Beauty School Dropout." Special arrangements have been made to include three songs from the hit film that starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, including "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "You're the One That I Want."

Avalon, who recorded the 1950s hit songs "De De Dina" and "Venus" and starred in more than 30 films, will reprise his movie role as "Teen Angel."
