Alan Osmond and his siblings celebrated 50 years in show business this year. Now his sons are taking center stage for a Christmas charity concert tomorrow. We talked with the brothers during rehearsals this week.
You know the voices, the faces, the name Osmond -- plus a generation. They are Alan and Suzanne's sons. Douglas, David, Nathan, Mike, Tyler, Scott and John are rehearsing for a new variety show. They told us it's in the genes.
"[We've] done Christmas shows together with our dad, his brothers, Marie; and we'd never done one by ourselves. So we did it last year, had a great time with it, and wanted to do it again," David said.
All of this talent has come together for more than a party. They're raising money for a good cause. Proceeds from the concert will go to The MORE Project, a charity that helps impoverished children in Brazil, where John served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
"I saw families where their homes were just basically made out of plastic; plastic for walls, kind of to break the wind. So anything that we can do to help people in that type of situation, we're all about that," John said.
They grew up on the Osmond Christmas shows, an American tradition. The brothers say they hope to make theirs an annual event.
"We wanna continue that now. So, it's kind of like the new show in town, and yet it's something that's been around for 50 years," Douglas said.There are actually eight brothers. Alex is not performing because he's serving an LDS mission in Atlanta.
