Born Olive Marie Osmond to Olive and George Osmond, Marie Osmond was raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, along with her eight brothers Virl, Tom, Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, and Jimmy Osmond. Since an early age, her brothers maintained a career in show business, singing and performing on national television. Osmond debuted as part of her brothers' act The Osmond Brothers on the The Andy Williams Show when she was three, but generally did not perform with her brothers in the group's television performances through the 1960s.1970s music career
Aside from her two eldest brothers, who were hearing impaired, Marie was soon the only family member not involved in the music business. After the initial success of The Osmonds in 1970, Marie's older brother Donny Osmond was gaining success as a solo artist on the Pop Music charts and was becoming a teen idol.The Osmonds' management convinced Marie to try her hand as well. She signed with the family's record label, MGM Records and began making concert appearances with The Osmonds. Her style was more directed towards country music, in contrast with her brothers' pop music.
In 1973, Osmond cut her first single as a solo artist, "Paper Roses". The recording became a #1 country hit, reached the Top 5 on the Billboard magazine pop chart, and achieved crossover success. The song earned a gold record as did the album of the same name. Osmond released another single, "In My Little Corner of the World", and a same-name album in 1974, with both entering the Billboard Top 40 in 1974. The title song on her next album Who's Sorry Now, released in 1975, went to #20 the month after its release. The title song from Osmond's final solo album of the seventies, This Is The Way That I Feel, reached #39 within two months of its 1977 release.
In 1974, Osmond had two pop music duet hits with her brother Donny Osmond: "I'm Leaving It All Up to You" and "Morning Side of the Mountain." The former song was a Top 20 country hit. In 1976, Marie and Donny began to host their variety show Donny & Marie, which ran on ABC until 1979. In 1978, Marie and Donny released their film Goin' Coconuts,, which was not a financial success. The following year, Marie starred in a sitcom pilot titled "Marie." which did make the new season schedule. The year after that, Marie had her own variety show on NBC, also titled Marie, which ran for half a season.1980s music career
Marie went into brief retirement from the music business and pursued a career in acting in the early 1980s. She turned down the lead role as Sandy in Grease because she didn't approve of the script's moral content , , and the role went to Olivia Newton-John. She appeared in some TV movies and did voice-over work for children's cartoons. Prior to the comeback success of her brother Donny in the late 1980s, Marie made a comeback in country music as a solo artist by signing a deal with Curb Records in Nashville. In 1985, Marie and Dan Seals sang a duet called "Meet Me In Montana" which became a #1 country hit that year.
Her follow-up to "Meet Me In Montana" was a solo hit called "There's No Stopping Your Heart," which reached #1 in early 1986 for Marie. Her singles mainly focused on the more-popular Countrypolitan style. In late 1985, she released the "There's No Stopping Your Heart" album of the same name. In 1986, the single "Read My Lips" became a Top-20 country hit. She hit #1 again with a duet with Paul Davis with the song "You're Still New to Me." The Top-20 hit "I Only Wanted You," became her last major hit on the Country charts, to date.
