The show pays tribute to music legend Andy Williams who is known for songs ‘Moon River’ and ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’. Osmond is excited to bring his show to North Wales, due to his love of the country.Jimmy, whose celebrating 50 years in show business, said: “I really love Wales and Llandudno, in particular. I’ve spent some great times there”.  His family is set to spend Christmas in the UK and his daughter is “keen to spend the holidays somewhere in Wales” according to Osmond. With amazing accommodation options, like North Wales caravan parks, as a base to spend their Christmas the Osmonds are spoilt for choice. Osmond is proud of his Welsh roots commenting: “I know a lot about my Welsh roots, there are members of my family from Swansea and Merthyr and Andy Williams has Welsh roots too. He was proud of them and we would often compare notes.” Osmond had a long history with Williams, with Andy Williams featuring the Osmond Brothers on his television show and inviting the Osmonds to perform on his live shows in Vegas.  The show, for Osmond, is the perfect way to celebrate his dear friend Williams. Talking about the reasons for the show Osmond said: “Andy asked me to keep his legacy alive.”  “Producing and performing ‘Moon River & Me’ pays homage to my friend and mentor and is the most wonderful way I can imagine to celebrate my 50th year in show business. The show is not about me – it’s about Andy Williams and his music”. Osmond is also set to sing some of the old classic Osmond hits in his show at Llandudno, as well as adding in some stand-up comedy. His show is one not to miss on your visit to North Wales!
