SINGING superstar Merrill Osmond returned to Leeds to host a special event for his family’s hearing charity.

The entertainer hosted an ‘Audience With’ event at the Marriott Hotel to raise funds for the Hearing Fund, a charity set up to be a legacy for Osmond family matriarch Olive Osmond, bringing music to deaf children.

Merrill told the YEP he was happy to be back in his “second home.”

“This is the fifth year we’ve done it, and we’re continuing the efforts started by my mother,” he said. “We’ve had such tremendous support in the UK, and right here in Leeds, where the business community, and our fans, have got right behind us.”
