LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - The entire Osmond family was on hand this past weekend at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida along with hundreds of friends, corporate volunteers and media sponsors who support and run their Children's Miracle Network charity (CMN). Founded by the Osmond family to help provide financial support to children's hospitals around the country, it's a nonprofit organization that raises millions of dollars for the 170 affiliated hospitals. The Osmond family including Donny, Marie, Jimmy, Alan, Wayne, Merril and Jay were on hand thanking supporters, conducting media interviews and even performed a special concert Friday evening for all in attendance. Friday morning, ABC's "Good Morning America" was on hand for live interviews and a special performance.

The Osmond family recently reunited to celebrate a historic 50th anniversary and performed live together for the first time in 27 years at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas where it was filmed for a PBS pledge drive program. "The Osmonds 50th Anniversary Reunion Concert Live in Vegas" has been airing nationally on PBS stations this month and has been one of their most successful pledge drives. The DVD, CD and special Collector's Edition packages of this historic evening will be released on DENON Records (a unit of the Savoy Label Group) April 1st.

Produced by Jimmy Osmond, the special is a lively mix of The Osmond's biggest hits in all of their incarnations incorporating video clips and guest artists such as Andy Williams (on whose 60's television program the family first came to national attention). The Osmond Brothers' hit songs "One Bad Apple," "Lazy River," "Proud One," "We're Having A Party," "Double Loving" and "Yo Yo" are performed as well as Donny's solo hits "Puppy Love," "Breeze On By" and "Soldier Of Love."
