Donny Osmond needs no introduction. For more than 40 years, the world has watched him develop from a cherubic little boy singing on TV with his older brothers to a seasoned performer who always has the power to amaze.
By the time he was a teenager he had become one of the most popular and successful stars in the history of pop music. In 1971, between his own and the Osmond Brothers recordings, he was awarded six gold records; the following year, he took home eight, and another four in 1973. With his brothers, he enjoyed a No. 1 hit with "One Bad Apple" and such blockbusters as "Yo-Yo" and "Down By the Lazy River." On his own, Donny hit No. 1 with "Go Away Little Girl," and made the top 10 with "Hey Girl" and memorable covers of Paul Anka's "Puppy Love," Roy Orbison's "Sweet and Innocent" and Johnny Mathis' "The Twelfth of Never." With his sister Marie, Donny had a third wave of hit records and enjoyed yet another kind of success co-hosting a weekly variety TV series.
His latest platter, What I Meant to Say, is the 54th studio album of Donny's career and features a mix of cover versions and new material by writers such as Gary Barlowe. Features the hit single "Breeze on By" plus renditions of "I Wanna Know What Love is" and "Faith".
