Donny Osmond has become a household name for many fans, particularly those in their 40s and 50s. He has the reputation for a clean living family oriented teen pop star, and the looks of the boy next door. He is perhaps best remembered for his musical contributions alongside his brothers, simply titled The Osmonds, and also with sister, Marie in the musical television series Donny and Marie (1976-78). Although teen sensations fade through time, Donny has moved on in his career and continues to work in the industry.
Osmond most recently stars in television series talk show The Talk (2012-13) as host. Appearances in other TV series include Your Face Sounds Familiar (2013), Loose Women (2004-13), Marie (2012), Dancing With the Stars (2007-12), The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (1998-2012, Piers Morgan Life Stories (2011), Good Morning America (2009-11), The Marilyn Denis Show (2011), The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson (2005-11), The Oprah Winfrey Show (2007-10), Entertainment Tonight (2007-10), Biography (2003-2008), and The Insider (2007-8). These are just to name a few. Donny has remained in the public eye, promoting his activities.
Donny has also starred in a variety of films including CTU: Provo (2008), College Road Trip (2008), the singing voice of Shang in Mulan (1998), Nilus the Sandman: The First Day (1995), The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch (1982), and Goin’ Coconuts (1978).
This amazingly talented performer has been busy in the entertainment industry since childhood. Donny is one of the fortunate child-star sensations who kept his feet firmly planted in reality, and adapted to his changing role in life by moving on to new challenges. His family values and desire to live life according to his beliefs have kept him from many of the pitfalls faced by other former teen idols. Donny Osmond is a model of common sense, and success.
