The Osmonds were signed on as regular nighttime performers, and luck smiled on them just a few weeks later when the father of popular singer -- and newly minted variety show host -- Andy Williams caught their act and recommended them to his son.
The Osmonds' momentum was slowed a bit in 1973 with The Plan, a concept album about their Mormon faith that failed to connect with the record-buying public to the same degree (although it was surprisingly popular in the U.K.).

  The Osmonds - Nostalgia Central
The singing Osmond siblings from Utah - Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay and Donny - performed together for nearly 10 years before they caught the eye of a record company astute enough to realize that the Jackson 5 in white would be a good earner.
It was shortly afterwards that the solo potential of the group's 11-year-old lead singer Donny was recognized, and while The Osmonds racked up five gold albums between 1971 and 1973, Donny's parallel career scored four gold albums and seven Top 10 singles.
Curiously, after the initial flush of success was over, The Osmonds (both solo and as a group) actually did much better in Britain where Osmond-mania really got a hold in July 1972 when Donny's Puppy Love topped the UK charts for five weeks.
