Deseret News – Concert review: Marie Osmond’s Deer Valley show proved the stage is her natural habitat
by Jody Hawkins
DEER VALLEY, Summit County — Marie Osmond showed on Saturday night that she has performer’s magic coursing through her, as she highlighted her nearly five decades of mesmerizing audiences. Yes, she may be one of Vegas’ biggest divas, but back home in the Rocky Mountains while performing with the Utah Symphony, she felt like the girl nex door, home for the weekend from the big city.
Kicking off the Deer Valley Music Festival‘s opening weekend (the festival officially opened with Chris Botti on Friday night), Osmond entered the stage in a sequined-studded, aquamarine floor-length dress that would have been the envy of any mermaid. Anyone who has followed her career knows the singer is partial to bling and sparkle, and there was an abundance of both at the Deer Valley Amphitheater as she kept up an ever-changing wardrobe.
