Osmond calls Las Vegas his show-business home

SHARE Osmond calls Las Vegas his show-business home

Donny Osmond credits Las Vegas as the foundation of his 38-year career and hopes it will play a role in his future.

"I started my whole career in Vegas," Osmond said. "I've played every single hotel, even those that aren't around anymore."

Osmond and his brothers opened for Shirley Bassey at the Sahara when he was 7, one year after their television debut that brought the singing sensations, the Osmond Brothers, to the attention of the American public.

Osmond's first headline gig was at Caesars Palace in the '70s. Frank Sinatra was in the audience opening night. The Osmond Brothers were a Las Vegas sensation. They were invited back to play at the Las Vegas Hilton, where they stayed in Elvis Presley's suite at the King's invitation.

"I want to come back there, possibly permanently," Osmond said. "It would be a nice home again."

Osmond recently recorded a 12-song CD, "This is the Moment," which delivers Broadway standards with a pop twist.
