Donny & Marie Osmond Are Home For Christmas Tour

Donny & Marie Osmond Are Home For Christmas Tour

The Family

SALT LAKE CITY — Donny and Marie proved themselves to a fan-filled audience Wednesday who offered unconditional standing ovations throughout.

In Utah for five shows and four nights as part of their annual Christmas tour (just prior to leaving for the European leg of the tour), the famous brother-sister Osmonds worked it.

They sang a range of songs from Broadway hits to high-energy jazz to a gorgeous rendition of the operatic classic “Nessun Dorma” by Marie, and Donny’s newest addition to their Las Vegas show, “Soldier of Love.”

They joked, getting plenty of mileage from Donny’s first-place “Dancing With The Stars” win and ribbing each other in between spectacular numbers in the style they’ve perfected over the years.

They danced, with Marie usually in dangerously high heels and Donny in a suit and tie.

Both earned all kinds of points with the packed house.

They boldly worked through the hall several times, hugging fans and even reaching over a couple of rows at a time to make contact. Marie kissed a number of fans on the forehead, and Donny got so busy greeting people that he missed an entrance.

They brought a hapless fan on stage. Donny gave an interactive rose to a overwhelmed woman in tears.

They tossed candy canes into the audience.

Both performers confirmed that they deserve their place as beloved entertainers who’ve sold millions of records and tickets to concerts for 50 years.

Footage that played behind nearly every song showed the two as youngsters, teenagers and adults who worked with show business giants like Bob Hope, Andy Williams, Johnny Carson, Michael Jackson, Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, Jack Benny, Elvis … this list goes on.

The duo sang Christmas songs at high speed and usually with a rock beat that refreshed a traditional tune into something totally unique.

Both revisited the past and the Broadway shows in which they had major roles: “Sound of Music,” “The King and I,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

Favorites and classics were included along with new songs like “It’s a Beautiful Life” from Donny and Marie’s recent CD release.

Marie’s costumes were spectacular, with sequins and fringe and bugle beads throughout.

Donny’s “Motown Christmas” medley was a rush.

Overall, it was more than two hours of high energy, solid talent, disarming, fresh humor and plenty of movement and color. But it seemed like only minutes.

These guys are good.

We Will Miss Andy Williams!

We Osmonds grew up on The Andy William’s Shows for 7 years!

There would have been no OSMONDS without Andy William’s introductions.

Andy’s talents were “Wider Than A Mile”!

He was the best singer, ever!

Heaven’s choirs just added their greatest lead singer!

We Osmonds loved Andy and will miss him . . .

SAMARIA, Idaho — About six miles southwest of Malad, Idaho, a girl was born in a log cabin on May 4, 1925.  Eighty-five years later, seven of Olive Davis Osmond’s nine children walked into the restored cabin. “This is so surreal,” Donny Osmond said. “You can feel her presence here”

the familyLuke Waldron and his wife Shayna are the ones who rebuilt and restored The Olive Davis Cabin.  They give a high five to the Osmond Brothers who were there for the dedication.  If you would like to arrange a tour to see The Olive Davis Cabin, Call (208) 776-4139.  It is located at 4575 South 4400 West on Samaria Road in Samaria, Idaho.

You will see several personal things that belonged to Olive when she was a baby, her pictures, quilts she made, etc., and even the original Singer Sewing machine that she had where she sewed her sons and Marie’s clothes when they were young.  In fact, see where the Osmond Brothers each engraved their names into the wood cabinet when they were young kids!  Many schools, family reunions, relatives and fans of the Osmonds have visited this site quite often!

Olive was an awesome wife, mother, and grandmother!

My Sister Marie Osmond Re-married Her First Husband.

By on May 10 in Blog tagged , , , , , , , , , , | 4 Comments

My sister Marie Osmond called me early Monday morning and said that she and Steve Craig were going to get re-married in the Las Vegas Temple on Wednesday and asked if I could be there.
I told her we were just leaving for Connecticut to speak at a M.S. Convention.
Marie said, that’s okay.  We want a small wedding and no press.  She said, Alan, I am really happy!
Marie also told me that the wedding dress she had made wasn’t turning out the way she wanted and so she went digging into her closet to find her old first weddind dress.  She said, it fits!
I asked if I could tell my children about it and she said, no, I want this to be very private moment just for my family.
Here is a video and article about her.
When we as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints marry in The House of The Lord, or the Temple, we do not part at death as in most marriages but we are sealed together for time and for all eternity!  Here is a scripture that explains it.
“If a man marry a wife by my word, which is my law, and by the new and everlasting covenant, and it is sealed unto them by the Holy Spirit of promise, by him who is anointed, unto whom I have appointed this power and the keys of this priesthood; . . . and if [they] abide in my covenant, . . . it shall be done unto them in all things whatsoever my servant hath put upon them, in time, and through all eternity; and shall be of full force when they are out of the world” (D&C 132:19).

People Magazine Article
By ANDREW SPRINGER and ASHLEIGH BANFIELD
May 9, 2011

Marie Osmond, who recently re-married her first husband, revealed today that they secretly dated for two years before the surprise wedding.

“I didn’t want anybody to get hurt, you know if it didn’t work out. And gosh, it just worked out,” Osmond said on “Good Morning America.” She said even her kids didn’t know.

First wed in 1982, Osmond remarried former pro-basketball player Steve Craig in Las Vegas on May 4. People Magazine reported the two were wed in a private ceremony at the Las Vegas Mormon Temple and celebrated with a reception at home.

When asked how she fell back in love, she simply replied, “Well, you don’t plan those things.” She said Craig helped her move into their Las Vegas home and their rekindled relationship began soon after.

Her brother Donnie Osmond called it a Cinderella story. “She deserves it. I tell you after all she’s been through it’s about time that Marie gets a little happiness in her life,” he said.

Marie Osmond also showed off her two wedding rings, including one Craig bought from an estate in Paris and another full of eight carat Asher diamonds.

Her first marriage to Craig lasted three years and produced one son, Stephen, who’s now 28 years old.

In 1982, Marie Osmond talked about her marriage to Craig on “Good Morning America.”

“As far as Steve is concerned, I have never found anyone I respect more, who I love more,” she said.

Her second marriage ended in 2007.

Remarriages aren’t uncommon but it doesn’t just happen in the movies: Think Liz Taylor and Richard Burton. Robert Wagner married Natalie Wood twice.

Osmond, 51, has had her troubles, including depression, two divorces and the suicide of son Michael, 18, last year. It was reportedly Craig who helped her to cope.

She appeared on “Oprah” after her son’s death. “This is probably the hardest thing I’ve been through,” Osmond told Winfrey.

Bethany Marshall, a psychoanalyst, said, “One of the reasons people reach back to old lovers is they want to reach back for really positive memories, and all that passion you once had.”
