ARTIST BIO

Spanning five decades of entertainment, Donny has been a singer, actor, triple-threat television series host (talk show, game show, variety show), best-selling author (his autobiography entered the UK bestseller chart at #1), commercial spokesman, motivational speaker, and even a racecar driver.

Donny has made music history by celebrating 50 years in show business and the release of his 60th album. Soundtrack Of My Life is just that: a summary of Donny’s extraordinary life so far. Each track tells a story of both his professional and personal life – from becoming a child star to achieving multiple No.1s, selling over 100 million records, and becoming a worldwide legend.

Today, Donny performs at the Flamingo Las Vegas with his sister, Marie. The show began back in September 2008 and was originally scheduled to run for six weeks. The response was so overwhelming that the Flamingo immediately asked for an extension.

In 2013, Donny and Marie were honored at The Flamingo Las Vegas as the Showroom was renamed “The Donny & Marie Showroom,” which celebrated their sixth year in Vegas. 2014 marked five years in a row The Donny & Marie show earned “Best of Las Vegas” by the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Throughout his illustrious career, Donny earned 33 gold records; selling roughly 120 million albums. In 2011, he and Marie released their first studio album “Donny and Marie” in over two decades. The single “A Beautiful Life” became #1 on the US Country Charts.

Within the last few years, Donny has entertained an array of audiences. In 2007, he starred on Broadway as Gaston in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast; hosted two television series on British network television; was a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight; and performed at the Concert for Diana, seen worldwide by more than two billion viewers.

2008 marked the 50th year celebration of the Osmond Family in entertainment. The entire family made a historic appearance on Oprah, which set a daytime ratings record and made Oprah’s list of Top Ten Best Celebrity Moments. The family then toured The UK, Australia, and Asia for the first time in 27 years to sell-out crowds.

In 2009, Donny was crowned Dancing with the Stars champion for season nine (the show garnered 37 million viewers weekly). One of Donny’s most notable appearances was his starring role as Joseph in Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which broke records during its six-year run with more than 2,000 performances in the US and Canada.

In 2013 he launched Donny Osmond Home, a home furnishings line that marks the first time he’s ever collaborated with his wife Debbie professionally.

Donny’s multi-generational worldwide fan base is reflected in the 100 million plus annual hits on his official website, Donny.com, and social media sites. Donny and Debbie, his wife of 37 years, have five children and eight grandchildren.
