How much is Marie Osmond worth?
Born on the 13th of October, 1959, Olive Marie Osmond is an American singer, philanthropist, actress, author, talk show host and a member of the show business family, the Osmonds.
Olive Marie Osmond was born on the 13th of October, 1959 in Ogden, Utah. Marie is the eighth of nine children and also the only daughter. She was raised as a member of ‘The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From an early age, her brothers built and maintained a career in show Business, performing on National Television, and singing. Marie debuted as part of her brothers’ act ‘The Osmond Brothers’ when she was four on the Andy Williams Show, but did not perform with her brothers in the group’s television performances all through the 1960s.
Osmond, in 1973, had her first taste of solo success with her rendition of “Paper Roses”. The rendition climbed to No. 1 on the country music charts and broke into top 5 on the pop charts. Her subsequent album that bears the single’s title also did well with country music fans. However, her next two efforts: ‘In My Little Corner of the World (1974)’ and ‘Who’s Sorry Now (1975)’, were unable to match her earlier feats.
Marie teamed up with older brother Donny, to score two pop hits, “Morning Side of the Mountain” and “I’m Leaving It All Up to You,” in 1974. A wholesome and photogenic pair, Donny and Marie had their own television special in 1975, which was a hit with viewers and fans. This gave the siblings their own variety show the in 1976.
Donny & Marie was an hour-long program filled with songs and skits, it debuted in 1976. Donny was “a little bit rock ‘n’ roll” while Marie was “a little bit Country” according to the lyrics of their iconic theme song. In addition to her duties for the show, Marie had to contend with schoolwork, being only 16 years old when the program first aired.
Donny and Marie remained devoted to their family and committed to their Mormon faith, despite their fame. Their religion prohibits coffee, alcohol, tea and premarital sex, the Osmonds were known to change the lyrics of songs rather than compromise their faith and beliefs.
Marie was not allowed to go on a date alone with a guy until she was 18. At 18, she was already thinking ahead to marriage, she told People magazine in an interview: “I’m not in any rush, but by the time I’m 21 I’ll probably want to get serious. Marriage is for eternity, Showbiz isn’t.”
‘The Osmond Family Hour’s show left the air in May 1979 as television audiences had tired of the squeaky clean brother-sister act and their renditions of older, more family-friendly songs. Disco and more urban style music was in vogue, making the Osmonds seem completely out of step with the current times.
Between 1980-81, she had her own limited-run variety show, Marie, and then made a series of television movies. Osmond starred with James Woods and Timothy Bottoms in The Gift of Love in 1979. She also played her own mother, Olive, in 1982’s Side by Side: The Story of the Osmond Family. Later in 1985, Marie served as co-host for Ripley’s ‘Believe It or Not’.
Osmond scored several hits in the 1980s when she revived her Country Music career. She topped the country charts twice in 1985 with “There’s No Stopping Your Heart” and “Meet Me in Montana”—a duet with Dan Seals. The next year, “You’re Still New to Me,” her duet with Paul Davis, also reached the No. 1 spot.
Marie Osmond’s net worth is estimated to be over $20M. She made her fortune mostly from her musical career. Other sources include her acting career and brand endorsements.
