MINNEAPOLIS – Donny Osmond and his sister Marie are bringing their Christmas show to Target Center in Minneapolis next Saturday, December 21st.

Today (Friday) Donny visited with me on the News @ Noon show on WJON to talk about the show, and show business in general.

Osmond says they’ve taken elements of their award winning show in Las Vegas, added some holiday songs, and turned it into a touring Christmas show.  He says it’s a multi-million dollar production.  He says it’s important for them to do the songs their fans want to hear, like: Puppy Love, One Bad Apple, and Soldier of Love.

Osmond says he considers Minneapolis to be his second home, because he performed in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the State Theatre on Hennepin Avenue.

It was 50 years ago this week that Osmond made his singing debut at the age of 5 on the Andy Williams show.

Osmond says there’s really no secret to his success and longevity in the business, just hard work and the willingness to keep reinventing yourself.  He credits “Dancing With the Stars” for helping to boost in career recently.

Osmond says the holiday season in the Osmond family was always a crazy time with lots of performances.

He says he has five boys, and six grandchildren now – none of them are performers.

What’s to come for Donny Osmond in 2014?  He says he’s working on his 60th album right now.  And, he and his wife are teaming-up for the “Donny Osmond Home Furnishings” collection.
