Donny Osmond has been in the public eye since he first appeared on “The Andy Williams Show” at the tender age of 5 with his older brothers. He survived the frenziness of the Osmond Brothers during the 1960s. And by the time he was “a little bit rock 'n' roll” alongside younger sister Marie in the late 1970s, Donny was a bona fide star. His career has had its share of ups and downs - right now it's up - and it's that journey he wants to share with his longtime fans in his new concert, “Basically Yours.” Osmond, 53, will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, at the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center on the campus of Shippensburg University.
