Marie Osmond Shares Inspiring Story of How NYC Blackout Couldn’t Stop Her Grandson Stephen’s Performance
There is no doubt that Marie Osmond is a proud granny. She went last night to the Carnegie Hall theatre to see her grandson Stephen singing with The Millennial Choir and Orchestra, but their plans seemed frustrated for a while.
Everyone was gathered at the theatre to see Stephen singing in such an emblematic place, but when the show was about to start the lights went off and people learned that New York City was under his worst power outage in over 10 years.
The show had to be suspended and people were evacuated from the building. However, this amazing group of young musicians had the greatest idea to lift people’s spirits and quickly decided to give the concert right there in the Carnegie Hall grounds.
It was a complete surprise for the rest of the attendants, they all sat on the grass and enjoyed an amazing evening. Luckily, people’s cellphones still got some battery left and there are many amateur videos in social media of that night.
Marie Osmond felt completely honored to be right there having the chance to admire her grandson and took to social media to tell all her fans and followers about the magic night they had despite the power outage and the city chaos.
“Instead of a few listening inside the Hall the whole world was able to hear their concert! The pure love of Christ was shared as they were able to find power in service when this challenge occurred,” said Marie in her Instagram post.
According to Marie, anyone can learn a valuable lesson from that spontaneous concert. “It is up to us to turn life’s drawbacks into winning situations. I know it can be done with the Lord’s help!” she said.
And continued: “How have you used the Lord’s power to turn a difficult event into something positive? Share your stories with me, you know I love to hear them! Happy Sunday to you and yours.“ She concluded.
Osmond became famous at age 13, with her hit "Paper Roses," and began acting with her brother Donny on the television show "Donny and Marie Show" in the 1970s.
Both used to offer a musical variety show at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for more than 10 years. However, the hotel informed that the most famous couple of performer siblings decided to end the show and they will have their last function in a short time.
