When you say the name "Donny Osmond," women still act like giddy teenagers! Donny joined his brothers' group when he was just 6 years old and exploded into the hearts of adoring fans all over the world.

With his puppy dog eyes and million dollar smile, Donny Osmond was one of the biggest teen heartthrobs of the 1970s. Then, Donny met a nice girl named Debbie and got married. No longer America's most eligible bachelor, some disappointed fans burned his albums in protest.

In the years that followed, near bankruptcy, a faltering music career and a failed attempt at Broadway threatened to destroy this golden boy's image...but not for long. In 1989, a breakthrough hit called "Soldier of Love" put him back on the charts. His six-month run starring in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was so spectacular, it got extended to six years.

Yet behind the scenes, Donny battled debilitating panic attacks and anxiety. He wrote about his struggles in a best-selling autobiography, Life Is What You Make It.
