The Osmonds are an American family group who, in various combinations, have been performing on stage and television since 1962.

 

The Osmonds were regulars on the 'Andy Williams Show' from 1962 until 1969. After leaving the show the brothers became regulars on 'The Jerry Lewis Show' and started touring with Andy Williams.

 

At this stage they were performing barbershop harmony songs but around 1970 the brothres decided to change their focus and become a rock & roll band, but parental objections saw them turn into more of a pop band. From then on they became top recording stars as both a group and as solo performers when the family act was joined by Donny and Marie.

 

Jimmy Osmond, the youngest perfoming member of the band had a 1972 number one hit in the UK with 'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' and put Jimmy in the record books as the youngest performer to top the UK charts.

 

This action shot was taken on 16th March 2012 at Fairfield Halls in South London, UK, and features Jay, Jimmy and Merrill Osmond.
