Not your typical Utah Mormons, we’re here to talk about the Osmond family. For more than 40 years, the family has performed on stages across the world. The band began with the brothers Jay, Alan, Merrill and Wayne and later on, brothers Donny and Jimmy also joined. So, Marie Osmond actually started with a solo career before teaming with Donny for their celebrated duo. Despite, reaching international fame, things have not always been easy. We’ll cover the dark times, hilarious little known tidbits and their favorite charity.
Back in the 1970’s, the Osmonds took their talents to television. On the famous duo’s show, The Donny and Marie Show, famous guests would make appearances. Sadly, Marie Osmond remembers a traumatizing experience when the iconic Groucho Marx came on the show. Apparently, this older comedian would pinch Marie. Of course, this stayed with her and she later called him, “dirty old man.”
