Marie Osmond recently opened up to talk about her son Michael – who committed suicide in February 2010.

She told OMG Insider – “I know I’ll see my son again and it’s that kind of faith that gets you through the difficult dark moments. Have I been through dark moments? Absolutely.”

The 53-year-old entertainer – who now has her own talk show called Marie on the Hallmark Channel – added, “Is it difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel? Sometimes it’s very challenging, but I have great hope.

“If I were to say one thing I want to spread through this show and the thing that I do is give people hope. To let them know we all go through it.”

Marie’s son was 18 when he  jumped to his death from his Los Angeles apartment on Feb. 26, 2010. He was reportedly battling depression before he took his own life.

Marie returned to the stage for her Las Vegas show the day after his funeral.

“It was really hard. It was a calculated decision,” she told Oprah. “I’m unique, I guess. I’m a female in the entertainment business who has been working 48 years consistently. My stage is my safe place. It doesn’t scare me, like I guess it scares some people. And I knew that if I didn’t get back on stage that I may never get back on stage.”

Ever since the tragic suicide of Michael Blosil, Marie Osmond’s son, Donny and Marie’s Vegas show has been put on hold. The news of Michael’s suicide hit on February 27t. On that Saturday, TMZ reported that:

Michael Blosil, one of Osmond’s eight children, jumped from his downtown Los Angeles apartment building.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Michael left behind a note that said he intended to commit suicide due to a life-long battle with depression.

Since then the Osmonds have been grieving the loss of Michael. It has been reported that Marie is eager to get back onstage, because she finds that performing is very cathartic for her. Next Tuesday, the Osmond’s shows at The Flamingo Las Vegas will resume and they will also perform from April 13-17th to make up for the canceled shows after Michael’s death.
