"Soldier of Love" is a 1989 song by American singer Donny Osmond, which became his comeback hit.
Fearing that the public were not going to buy a new Donny Osmond record, his label decided to release the single with no indication of who the artist was, and radio stations advertised it as being from a "mystery artist". It gained in popularity and helped send the song to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 on its 8th week in the Top 40.
