Article about Marie Osmond

The American family pop superstars here, with brother Donny Osmond and sister Marie Osmond with another duet hit. This hit came from 1951, and was a hit for Tommy Edwards, he also had the same hit again in 1959 with the same record. Tommy died in 1969, but his biggest hit was “It’s All In The Game”.

Donny who was born in 1957, was already a huge global superstar at this time. and now he was not just working with his brothers, but also his little sister Marie. The duet would become so successful that in 1976 on TV they would  had the “Donny and Marie Show”,  again with a worldwide audience, a sort of new “Sonny and Cher Show”. Donny has been quoted as saying “You have to believe in yourself, otherwise you can’t do it. If you don’t believe in yourself, how do expect anyone else to? Because ultimately, you’re the one who has to do it”.

This single was a follow up to “I’m Leaving It All Up To You” in 1974, and “Morning Side Of The Mountain” charted to No.5 in the UK and came from the album “I’m Leaving It All Up To You”. The Osmonds in one form or another were a huge part of 70s music, and Donny in particular is a shared memory of the 1970s.

Olive Marie Osmond was born in 1959 in Utah, and had already scored a huge solo hit with “Paper Roses”.
