Vowing that singing would help her "survive," Marie Osmond returned to the Las Vegas stage Tuesday night amidst tears and standing ovations. It was her first public performance since her 18-year-old son, Michael Bryan, took his own life on February 26 and one day after she laid him to rest at a Provo, Utah, funeral service.

"The way Osmonds survive is we keep singing," Marie said after the first of three standing ovations, according to Radaroline. "My son would want that."
