Donny and Marie team up and perform a medley of their famous hits, including: “I’m Leaving It All Up to You,” “Little Bit Country and Little Bit Rock & Roll,” “It Takes Two,” and Make the World Go Away,” while brother Jimmy Osmond performs one of his number one hit records “Long Haired Lover From Liverpool.” Jimmy, Donny and Marie join their brothers in performing a medley of “Love Me For A Reason,” “Let Me In,” “Crazy Horses,” “He Ain’t Heavy,” and “Through the Years.” They also pay a musical tribute to their two older brothers Virl and Tom and the Children’s Miracle Network (founded by their parents).
