Donald Clark Osmond (Donny), who began his career singing with his brothers as a child and became a breakout teenage heartthrob needs no introduction. The highlight of his decades-long career was, perhaps, his many-year run as the star in the musical production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat but his TV shows with sister Marie come close.
Rising to fame with hits like “Puppy Love,” “Go Away Little Girl,” and “Too Young,” Donny was a hit from a young age. When he was only five years old, he and his siblings were featured on the Andy Williams Show, where they became an instant favorite. At the age of 14, he released his debut singles as a solo artist and started performing around the world.
Although Donny rose to fame at an early age, he didn’t stop there. He has been performing and entertaining audiences for over 50 years. Not only did he write a bestselling book, Life Is What You Make It, but he also performs a Las Vegas show with his sister, Marie, at the Flamingo Hotel. The Donny & Marie Show was so successful in its first year (2008) that the Flamingo extended their show, which is still running in 2016. He also competed and won Dancing with the Stars in 2009.
Donny is forthright about his beliefs and the conversion of tens of thousands of people who admired his ethics and friendliness is to his credit. In a world of drugs, immorality, and fame, Donny maintains his clean image and family values. He explains, “[My faith] gives me stability in a world, and in business, that can be uncertain, compromising, and stressful. It’s the pattern that gives me direction in my life.”
Donny’s beliefs make up a prominent section on his personal website, including a running question and answer dialogue with his fans. Keeping family as one of his top priorities, he celebrates 38 years of marriage to his charming wife, Debbie. They have five boys and eight grandchildren.
Donny, who still loves performing, continues his anniversary tour, The Soundtrack of My Life, through 2017.
