An emotional tribute for their little sister

The performance, which was in part a tribute for Marie Osmond’s 60th birthday, left the audience at the studio, and those who watched, in tears.

Alan, Wayne, Merrill, and Jay Osmond first talked about their little sister and how excited they were when she was born in 1959. The only girl among eight brothers, Marie, was “the little princess” of the family.

Alan recalled how the brothers went to the hospital after Marie was born to serenade her and their mother with the barbershop quartet classic “I Want A Girl (Just Like The Girl That Married Dear Old Dad).”

The birthday girl made her first-ever appearance on TV at 4-year-old alongside her brothers on “The Andy Williams Show,” where the group shot to fame in the early ‘60s.

The brothers also recalled how Marie’s first job was to answer their fan mail, and how scared was her fist date after facing all of her protective brothers.

“She brought a sense of class and beauty to our family, and she’s the jewel on the top of the tree,” Alan said.

The last performance

A tearful Marie then introduced her brothers, explaining that they were performing “for the final time ever” and that they wrote the song “The Last Chapter” to “say 'thank you' to all of you, their fans."

The original quartet sang in front of a screen that showed a montage of their long-lasting career, as well as some of their childhood pics and highlights of Marie’s life too.

In the end, more than one person sitting in the audience—including Marie—was left wiping away their tears.

“I wanna say that I am so honored to be your sister,” Marie said at the end of the emotional performance. “I love you guys. You've worked so hard. Enjoy your retirement.”

One more surprise

Donnie Osmond, who rose to fame after joining his brothers’ group and later found success as a solo artist, couldn’t miss his sister’s birthday.

The former teen idol first appeared on a recorded message, singing happy birthday to Marie as part of a musical number that included a billboard with her name in the background and a choreographed dance.

When the clip ended, Donnie entered the studio, leaving his sister speechless as he exclaimed that he wouldn’t miss the celebration of his “partner in crime” for anything in the world.

It was a heartfelt Osmond family reunion, although three of the siblings were missing: Virl, Tom, and Jimmy Osmond.
