Marie Osmond (born October 13, 1959 in Ogden, Utah) is an American entertainer and a member of the show business family, The Osmonds.
The only daughter of George and Olive Osmond and the eighth of their nine children, Marie has released many albums and appeared on television for over 40 years. At age 13, her song "Paper Roses" reached #1 on the country music charts, making her the youngest female artist in history to top the chart. She has charted with her brother Donny ("I'm Leaving It All Up To You" and "Deep Purple"), Dan Seals ("Meet Me in Montana", also a country #1), and Paul Davis ("You're Still New to Me"). Other solo hits included "This is the Way That I Feel," "There's No Stopping Your Heart", "Read My Lips", and "I Only Wanted You". She and Donny also had a hit variety show, Donny & Marie (1976-1979).
Marie played her mother, Olive, in the TV movie Side by Side: The True Story of the Osmond Family. She also starred in the TV movies The Gift of Love and I Married Wyatt Earp. She garnered rave reviews as Anna in the Broadway musicals The King and I and Maria in The Sound of Music in the mid-1990s. She returned to television with brother Donny in 1998 to cohost The Donny and Marie Show, a talk/entertainment show that lasted two seasons.
She appeared as herself in the 2001 TV movie Inside the Osmonds, which showed how the brothers' egos, their father's fiscal mismanagement, and the family's quest to build a multimedia empire led to their downfall. The film was produced by Jimmy Osmond.
