LAYTON, UT, JULY 26, 2011 â€“ The Davis Arts Council welcomes David Osmond to the Ed Kenley Centennial Amphitheater in Layton Commons Park on Friday, August 5 at 8 p.m.
A member of Utahâ€™s â€œfirst family of music,â€ David Osmond has music running through his veins. He’s the 4th son of Alan Osmond, the oldest of the performing Osmond Brothers, and he began performing with his own brothers when he was only four years old.
The Osmonds 2nd Generation had four songs in the Top 40 in the U.K., and played to sold-out stadiums and arenas in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Eventually, they settled in Branson, Missouri, as featured performers at the Osmond Family Theater.
David has had the privilege of touring across the nation, while continuing to record, perform with his family, and make appearances on American Idol, MTV, Good Morning America, and many more. David understudied the lead for his uncle Donny in the national tour of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT and eventually took over the role.
Due to his own battle with Multiple Sclerosis, he has dedicated himself to raising awareness and resources for the MS community through speaking and performing nationwide with a message of overcoming adversity. David was the 2010 recipient of The National MS Society’s â€œSpirit of Life Award.â€ In addition, he has served as the Youth Chairman for the Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network.
David has had some incredible highlights in his entertainment career, from performing onstage at Wembley Arena to singing at Harpo Studios for Oprah. He just completed a solo album, Reflected, as well as his debut inspirational album, Road Less Traveled.
The amphitheater gates open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Orchestra tickets are $18, reserved tickets are $13, general admission tickets are $10, and child/senior general admission tickets are available for $9.
