David Osmond, a Mormon, is a member of the famously musical Osmond family. He is the son of Alan Osmond, and is a member of the Osmond Brothers, earlier known as the Osmond Boys. David grew up on music, singing with his brothers in their home, on TV, and to sold-out stadiums around the globe.
The Osmond Boys worked extensively with the Children’s Miracle Network, visiting sick children around the country. They also appeared on several TV shows, such as Good Morning America, Live with Regis and Kathy Lee. The group went to Missouri to become featured performers in the Osmond Family Theater in Branson. David was invited to be the understudy for Donny Osmond in his role of Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He was honored to perform in the touring cast of the show, after Donny became ill.
David left his life in music to serve as a missionary for 2 years in Spain for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons). He then attended Utah Valley State College, BYU, and NYU. During this time, he battled with the West Nile Virus, which led to his Multiple Sclerosis. He pushed forward, despite his illness, to champion the causes of several MS charities. He continues to support MS charities, such as his appearance at the 16th Annual Race to Erase MS event in L.A. in May of 2009.
Progressing in his own health, David is now able to focus on music again. He auditioned for American Idol Season 8, and was picked to be a favorite in the competition by many viewers, but fell ill after making it to Hollywood Week.
In April of 2007, he married Valerie, the love of his life. Two years later, on April 28th, David and Valerie welcomed their baby girl, Saffron into the world. David is played Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Pittsburg CLO in Pennsylvania in 2009.
David’s new album, “Reflected”, is now available on his official site.

I was in the missionary training center with David. Super nice guy. Sang some great song with other missionaries for fire sides. Sang with him in the choir. Glad he is doing better with the MS.Hope things are even better now. Really like the song Last Day.
