Osmonds release new CD with original music

By on Sep 19 in Blog tagged , , , , , , , , , , | 3 Comments

Osmonds release new CD with original music

the family

Jimmy Osmond intended the newest Osmond CD to be a solo album, but once he started into it, it made more sense to recruit his brothers Merrill and Jay to help create the Osmond sound on a couple of the cuts.

Then Alan and Wayne Osmond wanted in, followed by Donny Osmond, who said he’d like to be part of the music, too.

Followed by the boys was Marie Osmond — she wanted to be included and sings “Breakable” on the album.

What started as a solo project became yet another Osmond album, capping more than 50 years of the family working together and succeeding in an industry where it’s difficult to stay together.

“We’ve made money. We’ve lost money. We’ve all had our day,” Jimmy Osmond said. “A researcher in England told me we are the longest running group in musical history that’s been together without disbanding. I told her, ‘You can’t disband a family.’ Plus, we really like each other.”

Osmond said their success comes from having parents who made sure every child got his or her chance to do what they love.

“You can’t fake it for this many years,” he said. “You’re just a part of something cool. It’s about people remembering the brand.”

The “brand” includes the Osmond Brothers on world tours, Donny & Marie as a duo working a signature show in Las Vegas and Jimmy on his own in Europe and Japan and managing a whole raft of Osmond projects, including the 50th Anniversary show that apparently reignited interest in Osmond magic.

The result of the latest collaboration is a new “family” album that’s already selling big in Europe. Owning the No. 2 spot on Tesco store’s best-selling list, the play list includes a cover song, “I Need You,” written by Gerry Beckley and previously recorded by a number of artists.

The other cuts are original material created by a number of songwriters including Michael Bolton. Two songs were created by the brothers, “Getcha Goin’ My Way” and “Remember Me.”

“We wanted to have some new music for our fans in Europe,” Jimmy Osmond said. “Part of our talent is our ability to adapt and change, show our range.”

The album is being released Sept. 18 in the United States. The three main singers — Jimmy, Jay and Merrill — will be making a personal appearance on Sept. 22 in Utah.

A percentage of the profits from the sale of the new album will go to the Children’s Miracle Network charity started by the Osmonds’ mother, Olive.

If you go:

What: Jimmy, Merrill and Jay Osmond personal appearance, CD release

Where: Walmart, 745 W. Hill Field Road, Layton, Utah 84041

When: Saturday, Sept. 22, noon-2 p.m.

The Osmond Brothers Final Bow And Testimony

By on Apr 30 in Blog tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | 28 Comments

The Osmond Brothers Final Bow And Testimony

The U.K. Tour

the family

On this, Merrill Osmond’s Birthday, The Osmond Brothers take their final Bow and share their Testimony to their dear fans and friends in their United Kingdom’s Final Tour.

the familyI know that Wayne and I so wish that we could have been there to perform and say thank you to the most wonderful fans and friends any musical artiist could ever wish to have.

I, Alan Osmond, was the oldest of the group and had to leave the group a few years ago due to having Multiiiple Sclerosis.  Wayne Osmond, the second oldest of the group just recently had to leave the group due to health conditions.

We always said a word of prayer before each and every performance we did asking for the Lord’s blessings and for the Holy Spirit to touch those among the audience that they might feel our love and testimony through our music that we have for life, for family, and for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We know that Jesus Christ is The Way to everlasting happiness and that He has restored His Gospel here upon the earth with all the power and authority to bless us with everlasting life in the world and heavens to come.

We usually always end our shows with a musical testimony via a song that we love so much; a song we wrote for The Plan Album called, “Are You Up There”, and ending it with the classic song, “I Believe”.  These shows that we have done for about 55+ years have always started with a word of prayer backstage and usually ended with a song of gratitude and belief on stage.

the familyIn behalf of all of my brothers and sister Marie, myself and all of the Osmond families, may we say thank you for accepting us and our music, and especially for all of those tender words, hugs, kisses and eternal friendships that will never go away.  We love our fans and call them friends knowing that there is purpose in life.

We Osmonds are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and are not ashamed of the fullness of His gospel.  We sing His name, we take upon ourselves His Name, and always remember Him and strive to keep His Commandments.

If you have felt that ‘Spirit’ and love in our concerts, our music, our TV and media moments, or wonder why we are the way we are . . . then we invite you to click this link and ask of those who respond to share with you “what it is that you felt” and then ask them any questions.  Ask them to explain and to give you answers to “the reason for the hope that is within us” Osmonds.  Or, if you see us, just ask us personally and we will share with you the glad message of Jesus Christ and His Plan of Life that includes The Way to return back to our Heavenly Parents and what is needed to be able to live in the highest mansions of Heaven with them for all eternity.

Sincerely with love,

Alan Osmond

Osmond Brothers Final Tour In The U.K.

By on Mar 13 in Blog tagged , , , , , , , , , , , | 2 Comments

 My Brothers Final Tour In The U.K.

the family

My thoughts and prayers are with my brothers as they perform their final tour of the United Kingdom.

As you know, we started out as five brothers called the Osmond Brothers.

Myself: Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, and Donny.

Then our youngest brother, Jimmy joined us!

We then we canged our name to The Osmonds because Marie, our only sister,  joined us!

Merrill sent to me last night of them singing their closing song, “Remember Me”.  I wish I could show you.  You will be seeing it soon!

There are only three brothers performing now due to health challenges.

In behalf of Wayne and myself, we say to all of our wonderful fans . . .

the family

“REMEMBER ME!”

THE OSMONDS FINAL UK TOUR

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL

For over five decades The Osmond Brothers have been entertaining sold out crowds throughout the world and 2012 marks the year of their biggest ever UK Tour.

The tour will take fans on a journey through their many unforgettable hits – from classics such as “One Bad Apple”, “Down By The Lazy River”, “Let Me In” and “Love Me For A Reason” to “Crazy Horses” and “Long Haired Lover From Liverpool” – the 1972 number One from Jimmy, who has more recently appeared in London’s West End in Grease and Chicago.

 “We truly want this tour to be a great big thank you to all our fans for their love and support through the years. We’ve performed in the UK many times, but this final tour will take us all around the UK and allow us to get up close and personal with our fans – we can’t wait!” said JIMMY OSMOND.

The Osmonds are unique in their success as a band and as solo performers.  They have recorded over 200 albums, selling over 100 million copies with 59 gold and platinum recordings. They have sold out venues worldwide, breaking box office records and received countless awards; most notably in 2003 when they were honoured by the industry, receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Family History Moments – Osmond Family’s Focus… ARE WE RELATED?

Family history moments: Family’s focus

the family

For decades the Osmonds have sung and performed for people around the world. In July 2008, all nine siblings of the famous Osmond family — Virl, Tom, Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, Marie and Jimmy — performed together with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir during two evenings of Pioneer Day celebrations in the LDS Conference Center. However, even when performing in different parts of the world, this large family has always taken time to focus on families, including trying to locate distant cousins and performing temple work for their deceased ancestors and relatives.

the familyThe Osmonds’ love of family history and temple work was instilled in them when they were young. Their parents, George and Olive Osmond, contributed countless hours toward genealogy and temple work, and involved their children in this “eternal work” as much as possible. As the mother of the world-famous singing family, Olive Osmond was constantly on the go. Yet, wherever she went she was continually answering and sending family history letters, compiling and directing genealogical research work, devising and suggesting new ways to enter family data into computer programs, and constantly encouraging relatives and her worldwide audience to become more involved in genealogy and family history.

As Alan Osmond has said, “My mother taught her children how to do family research, and we published our family history in several magazines and on various websites.” In 2008 the Osmonds traveled around the world on their 50th Anniversary World Tour, and according to Alan, “We would greet the audiences from the stage as, ‘Hi, Cousin! How Are We Related?'”

the familyMy brother Donny Osmond has likewise stated, “I inherited the love of genealogy from my mother and have fond memories of doing research with her and sharing our ‘finds’ together. I know that my mother has now been united with those ancestors she became familiar with while doing her genealogy work.”

Today, Donny supports a worldwide Osmond Research and Extraction Project, while Alan oversees Osmond-related temple work and maintains a family history website at  www.osmond.com.

And recently, Jimmy Osmond — while performing in England — took the time to dedicate the grave of his great-great-grandfather, George Osmond Sr.

the familyIndeed, it can be said that the dedication of the Osmond siblings to family history and temple work started when they were very young, for they were taught by their parents the importance and blessings that come from being involved in such “eternal work.”

Fathers To Provide For And Protect Their Families.

By on Jan 17 in Blog tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | 3 Comments

“Fathers are expected by God and His prophets not only to provide for their families but also to protect them…. M. Russell Ballard

“… On a day-to-day basis, fathers can and should help with the essential nurturing and bonding associated with feeding, playing, storytelling, loving and all the rest of the activities that make up family life.”

.

That’s what my father did with us as we were growing up!

This is a picture of my father, George Osmond, at NBC Studios in Burbank just being playful with us after we finished rehearsing and taping an Andy Williams TV Show.  Left to right is me, Alan, Merrill with Wayne at the right.  Jay is in front.

We were a barbershop quartet singing in four part harmony that took a lot of work, practice, and rehearsing.  Our father was always there with us to protect, support, comfort and play with us.  We had a family of eight boys, Virl, Tom, Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, Jimmy, and one sister, Marie Osmond.

In “The Family: A Proclamation to the World,” Church leaders declared, “Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live.”

Parents can experience great joy by building a strong, loving home environment and teaching gospel principles, which can help their children lead righteous, happy, and productive lives. (See 3 John 1:4.)

Just like our Mother and Father have done, parents can teach their children formally during family home evening and other family gatherings, such as daily family prayer and scripture study or at mealtimes. Teaching opportunities also come in unplanned moments as parents and children spend time working and playing together. Whatever the setting, the Lord will guide parents as they prayerfully seek to rear their children in love and righteousness.

Family Night was why we learned to sing songs and the reason to learned a song every week, so we could sing in at
Family Night!  Why we sang to earn money was to be able to help the hearing impaired like our brothers Virl and Tom and to raise enough money to send them on missions as missionaries which we did.  And regarding prayer, we never performed a show without first gathering together in a circle and saying a prayer of thanks and asking the Lord for blessing us that someone in the audience might know our love for each other and for the gospel of Jesus Christ and have the desire to know more about our Church and The Family!

Alan Osmond
