A new documentary by KSL News, a local news station in Utah, “gives an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look inside the hearts and minds of the iconic Osmond Family.”

The documentary description is as follows: 

“Through rare archival footage, and intimate interviews with all 8 siblings this documentary explores the challenges and triumphs of their extraordinary journey. From their humble beginnings as a barbershop quartet in Utah, to their enduring fame with worldwide reach, this family has been a part of the entertainment scene for over 60 years. Their legacy as a cultural phenomenon transcends generations and continues to inspire millions around the world.”

“Throughout the decades the Osmonds have remained steadfast in their faith, family values and commitment to one another. In this documentary they share how staying true to their values and beliefs as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has enabled them to overcome personal struggles, professional setbacks, and public scrutiny. Osmonds: Family, Faith and Fame is a tribute to the enduring spirit of the Osmond Family and a celebration of their remarkable contributions to music, entertainment, and the world at large.”

The Osmond family consists of parents George and Olive, who had nine children, Virl, Tom, Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, Marie, and Jimmy. The original barbershop quartet included Alan, Wayne, Merrill, and Jay. Donny and Jimmy later joined, and different members of the family would go on to have successful solo careers, including Donny and Marie, who found prominence in both music and television. 

Interesting tidbits from the documentary include the original motivation for the group to begin performing, being one of the first to test out Family Home Evening, and the Osmonds who became the first deaf missionaries of the Church.
