By the way, the show last night was a knockout!
It was the most incredible and fun so far!
Packed crowd of over 14,000 all standing and very involved!

DONNY and MARIE OSMOND are touring the U.K. with brothers ALAN, WAYNE, MERRILL, JAY and JIMMY, and ET is backstage with the entertaining clan!
Donny surprises Marie with the ET cameras just minutes before they're set to go onstage -- and then barges in on his brothers to see if they are ready! So, what went wrong during their "A little bit country, a little bit rock 'n' roll" duet? And did everyone hit their marks during the last performance?
The new tour provides the chance for fans in the U.K. to see the Osmond family together on stage for the first time in 27 years. They're performing such hits as "One Bad Apple," "Down by the Lazy River" and, of course, Donny's signature "Puppy Love."
The Osmonds' first show at Wembley Stadium near London sold out in just a couple hours, more than 7 months before the concert, and they're also hitting such locales as Belfast, Sheffield, Manchester and Cardiff.

A record-breaking amount in excess of $65,000 was raised for the 6th annual fund-raiser for the Utah Valley Family Support and Treatment Center. Thanks to all of you who contributed and made this night such a success.
Jared and Nathan each sang several songs, then Merrill performed three songs. Collin Raye blew everyone away with his incredible voice. The highlight of his performance was The Beatles "Let It Be" with only a acoustic guitar. It was certainly a night to remember.
After dinner and show, there was a live auction to accompany the silent auction already in progress throughout the evening.
Cathy Harrison, who was kind enough to share photos from the event, tells us, “Jared, being the great business man that he is, doubled the items people were bidding on. For instance, they auctioned off Lasik eye surgery for $3,700. Towards the end of the bidding of that item, there were two people bidding, so Jared turned to the doctor, who was the one donating this, and asked if he would donate two surgeries. Of course the doctor, being very generous, couldn't say no, so they made $7,400 just on those two item. Jared did that with other items, too, and he auctioned off a weekend stay at the Marriott Hotel where the event was held without checking first with the Marriott. Lol! But you know Jared, he would definitely get it done.
“The evening ended with an intimate gathering of fans with Jared and Nathan. It was great because Jared poured his heart out about uplifting things. He really should be an inspirational speaker. He would put the best ones to shame! He did manage to inspire us all, as usual.
“After that, we called it a night. I believe it was around 1:00 A.M. when we all departed. What a fantastic memorable night. And the best part about it is how much we raised to benefit the children. That is what it is all about.”

Also, Inside Edition has filmed a segment with Alan about his MS. We don't have an air date, but that could also be on sometime soon.
If you live in Utah, don't forget that Merrill, Jared, and Nathan Osmond will be performing at the fundraiser in Provo Monday night. Heather Osmond will be an emcee.
Also, The Osmond Brothers will be at Tuachan in St. George tomorrow (Friday).
