Donny and Marie Osmond are among the biggest acts on this year's Florida Strawberry Festival, performing Sunday on the Wish Farms Sound Stage in Plant City.

But there's another Osmond on the bill this year: Their nephew Nathan Osmond, who's performing twice daily, at noon and 3 p.m., on the smaller Tampa Bay Times Variety Stage through the end of the festival on March 13.

Nathan is the son of Alan Osmond, one of six brothers — Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, and Jimmy — who composed the original Osmonds group that rose to fame singing barbershop music in the 1960s and pop hits in the 1970s.

"'You have a brand; it's called 'Osmond,' " Nathan recalls Donny telling him. "I'm proud of the Osmond name and our 55 years in show business."
