People.com revealed the album title and artwork for Unexpected, while Playbill.com premiered the first listen to Osmond’s rendition of “Unexpected Song.” “I was captivated by the melody on first hearing this song — though I was not then entirely familiar yet with the musical Song and Dance. The title alone was intriguing and beckoned my interest,” shared Osmond.

With theatrical credits that include Anna Leonowens in the Broadway production of The King and I, Osmond performs additional numbers from Into the Woods, West Side Story, The Sound of Music and more on Unexpected. Osmond, who has spent 20 years of her five-decade career in opera training, is accompanied by The Prague Symphony Orchestra on the album, which also features songs in Italian, French and Czech.

The followup to Osmond’s Top 10 Billboard Country album, Music is MedicineUnexpected is dedicated to Osmond’s father who encouraged his daughter to follow her passion and sing every style of music she loved. These recordings are also a permanent tribute and personal thank you from Osmond to all of her fans who have requested them over the years.

Osmond is a multiple gold and platinum-selling artist and CMA winner, garnering numerous Billboard chart-topping singles and albums and three New York Times Bestselling books. She has entertained millions throughout the world through television, radio, film, literature, live concerts and Broadway.
