Moral & Ethical Leadership


Dec 29, 2020

Donny Osmond has been a singer, actor, triple-threat television series host (talk show, game
show, variety show), best-selling author (his autobiography entered the UK bestseller chart at
#1), commercial spokesman, motivational speaker, and even a racecar driver.
Throughout his illustrious career, Donny has earned 33 gold records; selling over 100 million
albums becoming a worldwide music legend. He has made history by celebrating almost 6
decades in show business with the release of his 61st album, One Night Only: a live album
accompanied by a DVD of his sold out UK tour in January, 2017.
The current Flamingo Las Vegas show with Marie, began back in September 2008 and was
originally scheduled to run for six weeks. The audience response was so overwhelming that the
Flamingo renamed their showroom, “The Donny & Marie Showroom.” The show ran for an unprecedented eleven years! The Donny and Marie show received many
accolades during their run. They've been awarded “Best Show,” "Best Singer,” "Best Band," and
"Best Dancers” throughout the years according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Throughout his career, Donny has notably entertained a vast array of audiences with his varied
career choices. He has starred on Broadway as Gaston in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast; hosted
two television series on British network television; and performed at the Concert for Diana, seen
worldwide by more than two billion viewers. The critically acclaimed song Captain Li Shang’s
“I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from the Disney film “Mulan” was sung by Donny. The song and
Donny’s singing of it received accolades from around the globe and ranks as one of the most
popular and enduring Disney tunes of all time.
2008 marked the 50th year celebration of the Osmond Family in entertainment. The entire family
made a historic appearance on Oprah, which set a daytime ratings record and made Oprah’s list
of Top Ten Best Celebrity Moments. The family then toured the UK, Australia, and Asia for the
first time in 27 years to sell-out crowds.
In 2009, Donny was crowned Dancing with the Stars champion for season nine (the show
garnered 37 million viewers weekly). One of Donny’s most notable appearances was his starring
role as Joseph in Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,
which broke records during its six-year run with more than 2,000 performances in the US and
Canada.
In 2013 he launched Donny Osmond Home, a home furnishings line that marks the first time
he’s ever collaborated with his wife Debbie professionally. It is available on sites like Wayfair,
Target, Home Depot, Amazon, RC Willey, to name a few, as well as retail outlets all across
North America.
In Spring of 2018, Donny wrote a customized video birthday e-card for American Greetings with
more than 1,000 names to choose from. Donny does the honors by dancing and singing his way
through a fun birthday song customized for whomever you choose. People of all ages have been
blown away by the personalized (and hilarious!) wishes in which Donny actually sings their
name and age for a truly unique birthday greeting.
In August of 2018, Donny collaborated with rapper Lil Yachty for Chef Boyardee's highly
successful, vintage-style commercial. This unlikely pairing proves Donny's philosophy that
sometimes you need to think outside to box to score a lasting impression. Judging from the
public's reactions, Donny and Yachty wrote the perfect hip-hop jingle that expertly positions
Chef Boyardee to all ages.
Donny’s multi-generational worldwide fan base is reflected in the 100 million plus annual hits on
his official website, Donny.com, and social media sites.

Donny also just announced his return to Las Vegas and the Caesars Entertainment family with his first-ever solo multi-year residency inside Harrah’s Showroom at Harrah’s Las Vegas, opening Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2021. 

Donny and Debbie, his wife of 40 years,
have five children and ten grandchildren.
