PROVO, Utah - The Osmond family has been a big hit on the musical scene for years but they are about to stage a first ‑‑ a public concert in their home state of Utah.
The Osmonds, who moved from Ogden to Provo in 1971, have performed all over the world, but never publicly in Utah.
The concert is to be at Brigham Young University on Jan. 25, with proceeds to go to the Mormon school.
They own an apartment complex across the street from the university, and they have built a television recording studio and film center in neighboring Orem.
Three of the Osmonds, Donny, Marie and Jay, have taken classes at Brigham Young. A family spokesman, Ron Clark, said the benefit concert is the Osmonds' way of saying thanks.
The Osmonds have produced 25 gold records and sold more than 100 million records worldwide. They also are unofficial representatives for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter‑day Saints, or Mormons.
