Donny Osmond was born in 1957. 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 six months. The response was so overwhelming that the Flamingo immediately asked for a two-year extension.

According to her website, Marie Osmond has spent five iconic decades in the entertainment business performing as a successful singer, television performer and talk show host, dancer, actor, author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and public speaker.

She has continued to maintain relevance, remaining an instantly recognizable figure across the globe. Her debut single “Paper Roses” reached the No. 1 spot on two Billboard charts, a feat that not only placed her among an elite class of musical royalty, but instantly catapulted her into international superstardom.

Since then, she has garnered two Grammy nominations, a CMA Vocal Duo of the Year award, numerous Billboard chart-topping singles and albums, and three New York Times Bestselling books. She has entertained hundreds of millions people through film, television, radio, literature, live concerts and Broadway performances. She continues to tour the world, perform with her brother Donny at the Flamingo Hotel’s Donny & Marie Showroom in Las Vegas and has helped raise over $5 billion to date as co-founder of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, helping 11 million children annually.
