Entertainment superstar Donny Osmond came of age in the mid-1970s - an era of long-haired rock stars and sexual liberation. But Osmond and the rest of his performing siblings, with their traditional Mormon upbringing, had more in common with the previous generation. They favored the style of gracious song and dance men with canned stage patter, over the increasingly popular style of youthful rebellion. Fortunately, even the rebellious, hedonistic decade of the seventies needed perky entertainers who said "yes, sir" as much as it needed angry delinquents, and Osmond was able to parlay being an affable man of faith and family into more than four decades of solid work on stage and screen. He released an astonishing 54 albums, with total sales of over 80 million units. He hosted talk shows and game shows. He performed thousands of musical theater performances, wowing audiences with his skillful range. And he never made headlines for doing anything bawdy, inappropriate or illegal. Not many entertainers who grew up from childhood in the public eye could lay claim to that feat.
