There’s incredible star power when you combine the magic of ‘The Osmonds’ with the fantastic voice of Cher. In 1975, on ‘The Cher Show,’ the musical legends combined forces on a Stevie Wonder medley.
The Osmonds and Cher are wearing funky red, purple, and blue one-piece outfits with glitter all over them. Donny plays a singular keyboard hanging from the ceiling on the first song ‘You Are The Sunshine of My Life.’
After the first song, Cher transitions, saying, “You know, anybody who loves rock ‘n’ roll knows that song is one of the biggest hit songs around today, right guys? And my group and I agree on one thing, we love the guy who wrote it. You know who we’re talking about? Mr. Music Man of the ’70s. Mr. Stevie Wonder.”
They all walk to the front and start to shuffle their feet. They dance together with fancy moves while singing and shaking their hips, clapping their hands, and kicking their feet to the Stevie tune ‘Higher Ground.’
They continue to dazzle the crowd with choreography and vocal harmonies on ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered, (I’m Yours)’ followed by ‘Superstition.’ The medley concludes with Donny Osmond and Cher singing to each other on the classic Stevie song ‘For Once In My Life.’
The Osmonds were a family group that reached the height of their fame in the mid-70s. Cher had invited them to perform on her CBS variety show that premiered in 1975. Other famous guests on the show included Elton John, Bette Midler, and Flip Wilson.
Cher and The Osmonds performed the Stevie Wonder medley with excellent dance moves and sparkling vocal harmonies. Their costumes and choreography made for an electrifying performance of some of Stevie’s most beloved hits.
