Marie Osmond (born October 13, 1959) is an American singer, actress, television personality, author and businesswoman. She is known for her girl next door image and her decades-long career in many different areas. As a singer, she has had several chart-topping country music songs such as "Paper Roses" and "Meet Me in Montana". As a television personality, she has been a host of Donny & Marie (alongside brother Donny Osmond) and more recently on The Talk. As an actress, she had appeared in television films and Broadway musicals. As a businesswoman and author, she has written several books and helped found the Children's Miracle Network.

The eighth of nine children in the Osmond entertainment family, she made her television debut on The Andy Williams Show. At age 13, she established a career as a country recording artist and with her debut single "Paper Roses" (1973). She began recording alongside Donny Osmond, which ultimately turned into the siblings having their own syndicated variety show through 1979. In the early 1980s, the Osmond family lost a majority of their fortune and Marie performed alongside her siblings. She also attempted an acting career, experimenting with the variety show Marie. She then refocused her attention towards the country genre and signed a contract with Capitol Records in 1985. Between 1985 and 1990, she had three number one singles and released several albums including There's No Stopping Your Heart (1985).

In the 1990s, Osmond established her own collection of dolls which were sold on the QVC network. In 1994 she made her Broadway debut in The King and I and then in 1997 in The Sound of Music. Between 1998 and 2000, she reunited with Donny Osmond for the network talk show Donny & Marie. During this period, she publicly spoke about her struggles with postpartum depression, which were later recorded in her book Behind the Smile: My Journey Out of Postpartum Depression. In 2004, she hosted her own radio series titled Marie & Friends and in 2008 appeared in a season of Dancing with the Stars.

Between 2008 and 2019, she reunited again with Donny Osmond for a residency at the Flamingo hotel in Las Vegas. The show was given critical acclaim and later spawned an album of duets between the pair in 2009. In 2010, she returned to recording as a solo artist with the studio album I Can Do This. It was followed in 2016 by the country album Music Is Medicine and then in 2021 by the classical album Unexpected. Osmond also co-hosted The Talk between 2019 and 2020.
