Multifaceted entertainer Donny Osmond has paid a tribute to religious leader Russell Nelson in honor of his upcoming 95th birthday.
Nelson will be officially turning 95 years old on Monday, September 6. He is a former heart surgeon that is serving as the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Osmond is a diverse singer, dancer, actor, and record producer with a string of gold records to his credit. He is also a television personality and he just completed over a decade performing with his sister, Marie Osmond, to sold-out audiences every night in Las Vegas, as part of their "Donny and Marie" live show.
Backed by a full orchestra, Osmond sang a moving and powerful rendition of "You Raise Me Up," which was composed by Rolf Løvland and made popular by Irish-Norwegian duo Secret Garden, as well as Josh Groban and Westlife. Osmond's version of "You Raise Me Up" was controlled and expressive, and he was able to breathe fresh life in the lyrics.
If that weren't enough, Donny Osmond and tenor Nathan Pacheco sang a stunning duet of "The Prayer," which left everybody in goosebumps.
Osmond expressed his love for Russell Nelson via social media. "We love you, President Nelson. It's always an honor and privilege to perform with The Tabernacle Choir," he posted on Twitter.
Overall, it was a beautiful performance and it was well-received by all. They were able to give Russell Nelson a remarkable 95th birthday celebration to remember.
