From the cover: A television star by the age of six and a veteran of Las Vegas by eight, Donny Osmond had four successful careers underway by the time he turned eighteen. He was a member of the Osmond Brothers, a solo artist, made up half of a duo with his sister, Marie, and co-hosted the immensely popular television variety show The Donny & Marie Show. With numerous hits under his belt and legions of screaming fans, this polite boy from Utah with a golden voice and those pearly whites was one of the biggest teen idols of his time.
But by the early 1980s, public perception of Donny had changed. The kid everyone loved to love had grown up to be the man everyone loved to hate. Unable to secure a record deal as a mature artist, his music career appeared to be over and his squeaky clean image had become so unfashionable that Donny was on the verge of calling it quits. But when his 1989 collaboration with Peter Gabriel, Soldier of Love, made it to number two in the US charts, Donnys solo career blossomed and sell-out tours to the UK began.
In Life Is Just What You Make It, Donny candidly describes how he kept his faith, his dignity, and his sense of humour through the setbacks. For the first time ever, he reveals his battle with social phobia and how he came to understand that life really is what you make it.
Revealing and honest, readers will fall in love with Donny all over again
