This is the moment: the gratifying confirmation that two decades of restless talent, creative ambition and hard work have transformed an already remarkable singing career.

This is the man: Donny Osmond, a legendary entertainer who has continued to evolve, to grow, to redefine himself as an enduring artist in the music of his time.

This is the proof: a luminous new recording aptly titled, This Is the Moment, Donny Osmond’s first for Decca Records, on which he savors the best of a generation of new songwriters who are bringing fresh energy to the musical theater. Joining Donny for his first recording in four years are guest artists Vanessa Williams and Rosie O’Donnell. The album’s release coincided with a concert TV special for PBS, that aired in March, 2001.

Donny Osmond needs no introduction. For more than 41 years, the world has watched him develop from a cherubic little boy singing on TV with his older brothers to a seasoned performer who always has the power to amaze. Without a conscious plan, Donny has been working since the early 1980s to realize the kind of fulfillment he has found in This Is the Moment. The second he heard the pitch for a creative new album of Broadway songs, he said, “That’s it. That’s exactly where I want to be.”

Not just any Broadway songs, but new and exciting ones produced and arranged with a pop edge. The tracks were taken from such musical theater phenomena as Rent, Jekyll & Hyde, Aida, Saturday Night Fever, Riverdance on Broadway, Whistle Down the Wind and two brand-new shows — Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Beautiful Game, which just began its London run, and Broadway’s Seussical. Legendary producer Phil Ramone teamed up with the singer in putting together the recording, recognizing these songs as some of the finest pop music of their day.

The release of This Is the Moment is a long way from Donny’s Broadway debut in 1982 in an ill-fated revival of George M. Cohan’s Little Johnny Jones. “I opened and closed that show in one night on Broadway,” he recalled, “and I remember thinking — because it was just devastating – ‘One of these days, I’m going to come back and do it right.'”

Donny spent the next several years honing his talents as performer and producer, working with the likes of Jeff Beck, Boy George and Chicago. In 1987, Peter Gabriel invited him to record at his studio in Bath, England. The resulting demos recharged Donny’s recording career, catching fire with the release in 1989 of “Soldier of Love,” which hit the Top 30 in the U.K. and — some 13 years after his previous Top 40 chart-maker — No. 2 in the U.S.

Generating new heat in his singing career, Donny took another important creative step. “I checked myself into acting classes, and studied for quite some time at the Beverly Hills,” he said, “not knowing what I was going to do — just to be prepared.”

Without realizing it, he was preparing for one of the greatest successes of his entire career, a Canadian and U.S. tour in the title role of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Sir Tim Rice’s musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Though he had been tempted to pursue an offer to race cars full-time on the professional circuit — he had taken first place at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach Pro-Am — Donny turned down a racing contract in 1991 to sign a six-month contract to do Joseph. Although he would have to put everything else on hold, the calculated risk turned into a rewarding, triumphant six-year association. To date, the Joseph original cast recording is quadruple platinum in Canada and recently went gold in the U.S. Last year, the film version of the musical, starring Donny, premiered to stellar ratings on PBS’s Great Performances series.

The creative relationship between Donny and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has proven to be a strong and enduring one. Not only was Donny invited to perform two songs at London’s Royal Albert Hall to celebrate the composer’s 50th birthday (a concert that was broadcast on TV and released on home video) but also Sir Andrew gave him the previously unrecorded “Our Kind of Love” from his new musical The Beautiful Game for This Is the Moment.

This record of achievement happily confirms the fact that, after his first bruising experience in the theater, Donny has developed the chops to “come back and do it right.”

This Is the Moment also reflects the depth of Donny’s unique experience and knowledge, the result of an amazing career that began with his first appearance on TV’s The Andy Williams Show on December 10, 1963, one day after his sixth birthday. Pop music has gone through seismic changes in the intervening years, and Donny has moved with the times.

By the time he was a teenager he had become one of the most popular and successful stars in the history of pop music. In 1971, between his own and the Osmond Brothers recordings, he was awarded six gold records; the following year, he took home eight, and another four in 1973. With his brothers, he enjoyed a No. 1 hit with “One Bad Apple” and such blockbusters as “Yo-Yo” and “Down By the Lazy River.” On his own, Donny hit No. 1 with “Go Away Little Girl,” and made the top 10 with “Hey Girl” and memorable covers of Paul Anka’s “Puppy Love,” Roy Orbison’s “Sweet and Innocent” and Johnny Mathis’ “The Twelfth of Never.” With his sister Marie, Donny had a third wave of hit records and enjoyed yet another kind of success co-hosting a weekly variety TV series.
