Donny Osmond On World Cafe

Donny Osmond.
Donny Osmond.

If you're surprised that our World Cafe guest today is Donny Osmond, we can understand. After doing a little research, we decided that this former teen idol, television perennial and middle American mainstay might have some stories to tell.

The numbers say a lot: 100 million albums sold, 33 gold records, including 18 before he was 13 years old.

The man who gave us "Puppy Love" and "One Bad Apple" has just released his 60th album, The Soundtrack Of My Life. Each song has a story — and we will hear them. They include collaborating with his idol, Stevie Wonder, his lifelong friendship with Michael Jackson and how Peter Gabriel saved him at a career low point.
