GARY GRAFF SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

W

ho knew?
When we first glimpsed
Donny Osmond, he was
6 years old and belting
out "You Are My Sunshine" on the
"Andy Williams Show." A cute-kid
act, sure, but hardly a candidate
to become king — or even a
pharaoh's right-hand man.
But 32 years later, the kid stars
in Joseph and the Amazing Tech-
nicolor Dreamcoat, the latest peak
in a career that's notched 24 gold
records and 28 Top 40 hits -- not
to mention TV shows, commercials
and other show-biz successes.
During much of this time, Os-
mond was the butt of many jokes
— as the epitome of mass-market
blandness.
To understand why Joseph is
such a triumph for Osmond, let's
review those dubious distinctions
of the previous years:
*Three songs: "Puppy Love,"
"Go Away Little Girl" and "One
Bad Apple."
*Four seasons of Donny and
Marie on TV. Good riddance — ex-
cept it left us with Marie's own TV
series.
*Too many Hawaiian Punch
commercials.
*One Donny and Marie feature
film, Goin' Coconuts.
*A first theatrical endeavor —
a Broadway revival ofLittle John-
ny Jones — that closed after just
one performance.
*A 1976 single that was actual-
ly called "Discotrain."
*A non sequitur cameo in a
video for "Ambitious," a song by ex-
ceedingly cool rock guitarist Jeff
Beck.
*A 1989 comeback built on . one
hit single, "Soldier of Love," and

an image straight out of the
George Michael school of torn-
jeans fashion.
*A rival: Soap-opera star
Michael Damian's "Rock On" kept
"Soldier of Love" out of the No. 1
spot.
*A "Most Unwelcome Come-
back" vote in Rolling Stone maga-
zine's 1989 music awards.
*A collaboration with Frank
Zappa to protest music censorship
at legislative hearings in Wash-
ington, D.C., and Arizona. He
didn't, however, learn the har-
monies to Zappa's song "Jewish
Princess."
*A collaboration with Frank's
son Dweezil on a new rendition of
the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive.
*One fight, a boxing match in
which Partridge Family co-star
turned talk-show host Danny
Bonaduce battered our hero. No
technicolor here; the blood was a
monochromatic red. ❑
