Donny Osmond's Mormon Faith Keeps Him ‘Grounded'

Despite all the fame and fortune that has come with his decades-long career, Donny Osmond has managed to stay grounded, and he has his faith to thank for that.

In a HuffPost Live interview on Wednesday, the 57-year-old singer credited his Mormon faith for his down-to-earth attitude.

“I have such a firm belief in God, Jesus Christ. I’m a true Christian,” he told host Nancy Redd. “I want to be careful that I don’t shove it down anybody’s throats.”

Although Osmond never served a two-year mission, which for many is considered a hallmark of the Mormon experience, he said his ties to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints have served him well.

“It’s kept me grounded in life. As long as you have a belief in a higher power, in God, and you recognize that, it keeps you humble,” he said. “It keeps your … feet on the ground, it keeps your perspective on life.”
