(KUTV) When it comes to family entertainment, there’s no bigger name than the Osmonds and whether it’s Donny and Marie, or the Osmonds next generation, they continue to pack arenas and concert halls worldwide.
The original Osmonds in 1971 topped the charts with “One Bad Apple.” The sung, moved and shaked their way to the top. Aside from Marie, it’s always been about the Osmond boys, until now.
Meet the Osmond Girls—Sasha, Sarah and Suzannah, the granddaughters of Alan Osmond, and the daughters of Michael Osmond, a member of the Osmonds’ next generation. At 12, 13 and 14, they are just normal kids with one obvious exception—their very famous last name.
Donny may be their uncle, and Marie their famous aunt, but there's no free ride when it comes to delivering for an audience. The girls have been performing for years at the wildly popular Princess Festival, and with their mom in a series of soon to be released videos.
Soon, you’ll see them at the Hale Theatre in Orem for a Broadway tribute to "Fiddler on the Roof."
Michael and Bekah say their oldest daughter Suzannah actually began singing backstage during a production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat” almost before she could talk.
Famous Osmond brother and granddad Alan couldn't be prouder.
"Well, we love the grandkids. That's our joy! When we found out they also have all that musical talent, we're just excited for them. You can tell that they love it,” Alan Osmond said.
It reminds him of his start in show business, perfecting those famous Osmond harmonies and dance steps of the 70's. Now, he's helping the grandkids, and with a name like Osmond, it's not just about talent, it's about family.
"Family is everything in this business if we keep families in it. And that's why I don't mind our little gals going out there. The family is wonderful. It's important that they do it together and have fun doggone go for it. I'm supportive of it. The world is crazy and I'll be there to watch out for them and advise them, but if it's as good for them as it was for us, boy, I'm telling you. It's wonderful,” Alan Osmond said.
"They have fun together; they're sisters, they get along really well; they're close in age. They understand music and they understand the business,” their mother, Bekah said.
