Calling All Osmond Fans!

It never ceases to amaze me when I hear how many people not only have great memories of the Osmonds from back in the day, but who actually track their membership in the church, or the beginnings of their testimony back to their influence. They had a stronger following than I realized, and unlike most of the celebrities of the time - were not only wholesome in their entertainment, but  clearly, did a lot of good through it.
It shouldn't surprise any of us to know that they are still going strong.

From David Osmond's new CD "Road Less Traveled" and his Aunt Marie's new CD "I Can Do This" (after the tragic and heart breaking suicide of her son) , we are still hearing their music and feeling their influence. In fact there is an entire chapter on Marie Osmond in the new book Women of Character: Profiles on Prominent LDS Women, written by beloved authors Susan Easton Black and Mary Jane Woodger.

David Osmond also sings on the Best Selling CD Nashville Tribute to Joseph Smith - our most popular CD of all time.
His Uncle Wayne - a VERY funny man, shares tender moments in his book "Laugh Lines".
His Uncle Jay - shares the story behind the story in is autobiography "Stages".

If YOU have any memories of the Osmond's music or experiences to share about them, we'd love to hear about them.

You can buy any of these products by clicking on them. Or shop anytime day or night by going to - where you can shop in your pajamas (hee hee) :-)

  1. I didn't know there was a Generations blog until the email this morning! Very cool . . . putting this in my feed reader so I can keep up . . .
    My Osmond story is about the OTHER David Osmond . . . David Virl Osmond (3rd son of Virl) . . . well I suppose it's not a story per se, but I did go to university with him and had several classes with David our first year (before his mission) . . . excellent drummer! :)
