An Evening with Marie and The Osmonds
Beginning with her national debut at age three on The Andy Williams Show, Marie has proven to be a resilient talent with a magnetic presence recognized across generations. Entertaining for five continuous decades is a rare accomplishment, achieved by very few women.
Marie recorded “Paper Roses” at age 12, making history as the youngest Country female to have her debut record go to #1 on the charts, followed by two Grammy nominations. She still holds the record as the youngest female host of a national television variety show, The Donny & Marie Show (1976-81) – “appointment television” for millions of viewers worldwide.
She has recorded over 35 albums and has numerous gold records and hit songs, including a CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” Award for “Meet Me In Montana.” Marie’s 2010 first inspirational album titled “I Can Do This”, was an iTunes top ten listing after she performed “Pie Jesu” on Oprah. Donny & Marie’s single “A Beautiful Life” reached #1 in 2012.
Beckoned to the Broadway stage in the mid-1990’s, Marie mastered a new style of singing, to which she received outstanding reviews – starring in Rogers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music and The King and I on national and international tours.
Marie was also a finalist on season five of Dancing With the Stars, watched by 25 million people. Marie was the first-ever celebrity to publish a book about her experience with Postpartum Depression, Behind the Smile (2001), followed in 2009 by Might As Well Laugh About it Now. In 2013, Marie’s latest book, The Key is Love, became her 3rd New York Time’s Best Seller in a row.
Marie has now translated that success into becoming a nationally acclaimed public speaker and enjoys the honor of sharing her vast life experiences with audiences all over North America. Over the years, she has become a viable and trusted spokesperson and successful entrepreneur.
Marie Osmond Dolls garnered huge success over 25 years on QVC and in retail stores, receiving many “Dolls of Excellence” and “Doll of the Year” (DOTY) awards and countless nominations; making Marie one of the top doll designers in the world.
As a co-founder of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, the largest and top-rated children’s charity in North America, where all donations stay in the communities in which they originated, Marie has helped to raise over 5 billion dollars.
Since September 2008, Marie has continuously performed five nights a week to sold-out crowds at the famous Flamingo Hotel Showroom (renamed the “Donny and Marie Showroom”) in Las Vegas with her brother, Donny. The show has been voted “Best Show” every year since 2012; Donny and Marie were voted “Best Singers” in 2014 and have also been voted “Best All Around Performers”. The Donny & Marie “Magic of Christmas” show tours to sold-out venues around the US/Canada.
Marie hosted her own show for the Hallmark Channel in October 2012 and earned her “Critic’s Choice” nomination for “Best Talk Show Host” from the Broadcast Television Journalists.
Partnering with Too Faced Cosmetics, Marie was the muse for the brand’s Country & Rock ‘N’ Roll Collection in Fall 2014. In May 2016, Marie released her 10th album, Music is Medicine, marking her return to the country charts for the first time since the mid-1980s. The album was released through Marie’s own label, Oliveme LLC. The album features notable guest artists such as: Olivia Newton-John, Diamond Rio, SisQó (Dru Hill), John Rich (Big & Rich), Marty Roe, and Alex Boyé.
Above every other accomplishment, Marie is mother to eight beautiful children who will always be her greatest treasures, along with her true love, her husband Steve Craig. To top it all off, her response to becoming a “GlamMa” (as she is affectionately known): “Are you kidding, this is the best job of all – bring ‘em on, kids!!”
Most recently, Marie has joined the MD Complete Skincare team as Strategic Advisor and Owner. Marie has always had great affection for her countless fans and personally keeps in touch daily.
