David Osmond has music running through his veins, literally. He's the 4th son of Alan Osmond, oldest of the performing Osmond Brothers, and began performing as the lead singer with his own brothers when he was only four years old. They were known as The Osmond Boys and were discovered by the late Bob Hope, appearing on his 1986 Christmas show for their national television debut. By the 1980s, they evolved into The Osmonds 2nd Generation, signed with both Curb Records in the U.S. and Epic/Sony in Europe, had four songs in the Top 40 in the U.K., and played to sold-out stadiums and arenas in the U.S., Europe and Asia., making appearances on MTV, Good Morning America, Live with Regis and Kathy Lee, CBS This Morning, CNN and Entertainment Tonight, as well as other major shows and networks. Eventually as a group they settled in Branson, Missouri, as featured performers at the Osmond Family Theater. David was forced to put music on hold for several years, due to a physical battle with Multiple Sclerosis. He has passionately dedicated himself to raising awareness and resources for the MS community through speaking and performing nationwide with a hopeful and positive message of overcoming adversity. David was the 2010 recipient of The National MS Society's Spirit Of Life Award. Recent improvements in his health have allowed him to place his focus back on music. David was featured on the FOX hit TV show American Idol in 2009, he reprised the role of JOSEPH at the CLO theater in Pittsburgh, and also had the chance to recently perform alongside artists such as David Archuleta, Take 6, The Jonas Bros, Michelle Branch, and The Eagles.

Dan Davis started Stiry (‘stories that stir’), a video storytelling platform whose sole purpose is to help people discover their infinite potential through stories that move them. Since 2016, Dan has directed over 200 films around the world from billion dollar CEO’s, to the number one rock band in the world, and to the everyday person that has an inspiring story to tell. His philosophy is that every person deserves to wake up every single day with purpose and when you dedicate time to uncover your story, you can reveal the greatness already within and have the power to do something extraordinary with your life. This has never been more important to Dan than over the last few years as his health has taken a serious decline, being diagnosed with multiple vascular compression disorders, various tumors, and other debilitating medical conditions that prevent him from walking or even standing or sitting for more than a few minutes. Every day he wakes up with his purpose in mind, and it propels him as a husband, father of 4, patient, and business owner. His own story saved his life and Dan is dedicated to helping others make the same discovery. He’s on a mission to let you know it’s possible to both find and live your calling despite any obstacle that comes your way!
