Osmonds is the sixth album released by The Osmonds, the first under MGM as The Osmonds and the first to feature Donny. The first single from the album, "One Bad Apple", became a number-one hit according to the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The album reached number 14 on the Billboard Top Lps chart on February 27, 1971
Yes, I was not only an Osmond fan in my youth, but an obnoxious, obsessed, annoying one who only ceased talking about them when no one was listening. The fact that the quality of their music (despite their considerable talent) is usually on the level of Justin Bieber or lower makes this period of my life even more of an embarrassment. Was terribly disappointed that several of the original songs were not on the album and some of the songs were redone.
The Osmonds are devout members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and their religious values have influenced their careers. The Osmonds began as a barbershop quartet consisting of brothers Alan, Wayne, Merril, and Jay Osmond. They were later joined by younger siblings Donny and Jimmy. Music was an early feature of the Christmas season and its celebrations. The earliest examples are hymnographic works (chants and litanies) intended for liturgical use in observance of both the Feast of the Nativity and Theophany, many of which are still in use by the Eastern Orthodox Church. The 13th century saw the rise of the carol written in the vernacular, under the influence of Francis of Assisi. In the Middle Ages, the English combined circle dances with singing and called them carols.
This Christmas, I think of London and Manchester, whose powerful identities shone through over the past 12 months, in the face of appalling attacks. In Manchester, those targeted included children who had gone to see their favourite singer. A few days after the bombing, I had the privilege of meeting some of the young survivors and their parents. I described that hospital visit as a privilege because the patients I met were an example to us all, showing extraordinary bravery and resilience. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who died and those who lost so much, and we are indebted to members of the emergency services who risked their own lives this past year, saving others. Many of them, of course, will not be at home today, because they are working to protect us. Reflecting on these events makes me grateful for the blessings of home and family and, in particular, for 70 years of marriage.
The Osmonds are an American family pop group who achieved enormous worldwide success as teenage music idols in the 1970s. The group originally comprised brothers Alan Ralph Osmond (born June 22, 1949), (Melvin) Wayne Osmond (born August 28, 1951), Merrill Davis Osmond (born April 30, 1953), Jay Wesley Osmond (born March 2, 1955) and Donny (Donald) Clark Osmond (born December 9, 1957).
With each album recorded, The Osmonds' talents and abilities continued to grow musically and they still know how to touch the hearts and souls of their fans. No other musical group or family can match their harmonies. Who doesn't love this band. 7 brothers with dazzling smiles, handsome looks and feathered hair
