My Beliefs

Donny Osmond

“As I’ve traveled all over the world, the fact that I’m a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has caused a lot of interesting questions. I’ve received so many letters and e-mails asking things like, What are the basic beliefs of Latter-Day Saints?”

…Some want to know how Debbie and I have been able to maintain a strong marriage — over all these years — while living in the world of show business. Others want to know how we dealt with the challenges of raising a close and happy family in such difficult times.

How do we maintain a balance between work, and family life? Well, you know it’s not always easy, but the following pages are my attempt to explain a way of life that helps answer these kinds of questions. It gives me stability in a world, and in a business, that can be uncertain, compromising, and stressful. It’s the pattern that gives me direction in my life. And, I hope that this information will help answer some of your questions.

Questions & Answers

  • Thoughts on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

    My question pertains to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I have read your views and statements on LDS and since the “show” is very biblically correct, how did you come about to take on this role and how did your family feel about it? Does the story contradict the teachings of Joseph Smith?

    First of all, I accepted the role of Joseph in this great production because I not only liked the play itself but I wanted to get back into musical theater and I thought that it would be the perfect musical to do it with. Besides that, it was such an entertaining show that the whole family could enjoy coming to. My family was very supportive and complimentary as the show unfolded. To my knowledge, there is nothing in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat” that would contradict the teachings of Joseph Smith in any way.
