Donny was born December 9, 1957 to George and Olive Osmond in Ogden Utah. He is the seventh of nine children: eight boys and one girl. The entire Osmond Family have a long and varied career, which had a humble beginning singing barbershop harmony on Main Street Disneyland. Soon thereafter, Donny and his siblings became very successful teen idols worldwide.
Today, Donny performs at the Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel with his sister, Marie. The show began back in September 2008 and was originally scheduled to run for 6 months. The response was so overwhelming that the Flamingo immediately asked for a two year extension. The Donny & Marie Show is scheduled to continue through 2012.
Concurrent with his nightly performances at the Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel, Donny hosts two daily internationally syndicated radio shows for McVay Syndication in a partnership with TeshMedia Group: The Donny Osmond Radio Show and Donny's 8-Track Playback. Formatted to fit both Hot AC and Classic stations, his lifestyle-driven music radio show delivers helpful and insightful information to listeners who are looking for "a friend to help them through the day."
On occasion, Donny co-hosts the nationally syndicated nightly entertainment newsmagazine, "The Insider," and as a special correspondent for its sister show "Entertainment Tonight." He, along with his sister have recently co-hosted two primetime television specials, "Miss USA" and "America's Favorite Mom." The two have a long history of working together that began in the late 70s on the original Donny & Marie show.
2008 was a milestone year for the entire Osmond family, particularly Donny's brothers: Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay - The Osmond Brothers - it marked their 50th anniversary as performers. To commemorate it, the family gathered for a concert which was videotaped and broadcast nationally on PBS as a pledge drive special. Following the concert, the seven performing Osmonds went on a month long tour through the UK, Australia and Asia. It was the first time in 27 years all performing Osmonds were on one stage and also marked the final world tour for the Osmond family as an entire group. An expanded version of the PBS anniversary concert is now available on DVD at donny.com.
