David Levi Osmond is the fourth son of Alan and Suzanne Osmond (Alan being the founder of the original singing troupe, The Osmonds). Apparently, musical talent runs in the family. Mike Curb, who signed the original Osmonds to their recording contract, signed David and his brothers. They became known as the Osmonds 2nd Generation. They had four songs in the Top 40 in the U.K. and performed to sold out stadiums and arenas in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
In time, David’s uncles opened the Osmond Family Theater in Branson, Missouri, where David was a featured performer. David understudied for and eventually replaced his uncle, Donny Osmond, in his role in the musical production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
To pursue his music career, David auditioned and performed through Hollywood Week in the eighth season of American Idol in 2009. However, due to laryngitis, he was unable to continue on the show. In 2010, he released his first album, Road Less Traveled, through Shadow Mountain Records.
David, like his father Alan, suffers from the autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis (MS). To help him back to the stage, he repeats his father’s saying, “I may have MS, but MS does not have me.” As he has overcome his physical challenges, his career has soared. He released an empowering song, “I Can Do This,” to share his battle with MS and “to inspire people to do more than simply cope with the disease, and not let their MS define them.”
To find strength through his music, he writes about his challenges and setbacks. However, he wants his music to encourage and uplift others.
“The language of music is universal,” David said, “and I hope that listeners share the song so its message may encourage people to draw upon their inner strength to meet life’s challenges head on.”
Living with MS means that David could end up in a wheelchair again, so he enjoys every moment he can. “People ask me all the time, ‘How are you doing?’ and I tell them, ‘It’s the best day of my life, because I’m still here, on this planet, still breathing.” And he knows “it’s going to be a bright future.”
David and his wife, Valerie, have two daughters and one son, who was born on Mother’s Day in 2015.
In 2010, David did a soft release of an album called Reflected, which is available on iTunes and YouTube.
