The Osmond family began as a family musial group that primarily sang barbershop music as kids. The barbershop quartet consisted of the Osmond brothers namely Wayne, Alan, Merrill, and Jay. The group was joined by younger brothers Jimmy and Donny. Donny’s inclusion allowed the band to change its name to The Osmonds. It was at this time when the band enjoyed success as a hard rock ensemble as well as a boy band. The family eventually succeeded as teen idols who later produced a hit TV show. The family continued to enjoy success as solo performers and as a group. The entire family are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Marie Osmond, the only female sibling of the Osmond brothers, was able to launch her own career in 1973 as a solo artist as well as with her brother Donny as a singing partner. The family has so far sold more than a hundred million records globally. This 2017, the Osmond Brothers is still performing thanks to its original members Jay, Jimmy and Merrill. Donnie and Marie Osmond at times still perform as a singing duo. Alan Osmond’s sons are also second generation performers.Donny and Marie performed their Las Vegas residency at the Flamingo in 2015. They similarly toured all over the world. The entire Osmonds clan toured Europe in 2007 until 2008 for the 50th anniversary of their showbiz careers. A concert televised from Las Vegas to commemorate their anniversary was aired on PBS stations all over America on 2008.
