Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends meeting celebrities.
This is one of my favorite Friend Encounters ever. Last month, my sister Jean met the legend Donny Osmond in Las Vegas.
See how she looks out for me? Sacrificing her time, money and energy to get a picture with Donny, she did it because she knew I would love it.
Seriously though, I do love it. I remember as kids how big the Osmonds were. Back then, we never thought we would meet these big stars. Yet there she is with the former teen idol. I have met a few of my teenage crushes and it is always surreal. I imagine Jean felt the same. Actually, I feel that way just looking at Jean standing with Donny.
Jean said this was part of a pre-show, exclusive VIP experience with about 15 people. Donny sang, talked and answered questions for almost an hour. How cool is that? Jean made sure to get that picture before leaving and I applaud her big time for that. You don't pass opportunities like that without getting the picture.
After this session, Jean and Scott settled into their seats for the full concert. At 64, Osmond looks and sounds great. He can still deliver on stage.
I'm glad Jean got to meet Donny and happy she shared it here. Once again, I encourage everyone to get those pictures when given the chance.
