Donny Osmond

Donny Osmond began his illustrious career in entertainment at the age of 5, and by 13, he had already collected 18 gold records, eventually earning a grand total of 33 throughout his career, with sales of over 80 million albums. He recently released his 55th record, Love Songs of the '70s, which shipped gold in the U.K. His starring role in Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat broke records during its 6-year run of 2,000 performances. During his 40+ year career, Donny has been a singer, actor, triple-threat television series host (talk show, game show, variety show), best-selling author (his autobiography entered the U.K. bestseller chart at #1 last year), commercial spokesman, motivational speaker, and even a race car driver. Reflecting his multigenerational worldwide fan base, his Web site, donny.com, receives a staggering 120-million-plus hits annually. Last year, he starred on Broadway as Gaston in Beauty & the Beast, hosted two television series on British television, performed at The Concert For Diana (seen worldwide by 2 billion viewers), served as special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight to Dancing With the Stars, and, along with his siblings, appeared on a special episode of Oprah to celebrate his family's 50th anniversary in show business. Currently he is on ET again nightly reporting on American Idol, is about to embark on a sold-out 50th anniversary tour of the U.K., Australia and Asia with his siblings, and his upcoming summer series of reunion concerts with his sister Marie at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas has been sold out since last Thanksgiving. Donny and Debbie, his wife of 28 years, have five children and two grandchildren.
