This Is the Momentby Donny Osmond
Donny Osmond has long reinvented his show-biz persona from teenybopper idol of the past to mainstream popular singer. True to its name, This Is the Moment, produced by the legendary Phil Ramone, may be Osmond's finest moment as a mature vocal artist. The album concentrates on up-to-the-moment Broadway songs including selections from Seussical, Aida, the revamped Saturday Night Fever, Rent, and the newest Andrew Lloyd-Webber show The Beautiful Game. There are also well-chosen songs from Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, Guys and Dolls, the film Toy Story, and the Celtic musical extravaganza Riverdance. Throughout, Osmond sounds assured, comfortable, and well nigh delighted to be interpreting such first-class material. Two enchanting duets, one with Vanessa Williams ("Not While I'm Around") and the other with Rosie O'Donnell ("You've Got a Friend in Me"), add spice to an altogether buoyant project.
