The Bonner Family
The Bonner Family has always enjoyed music together and now they are recording their music. Their first EP went on sale in September 2018.
The Bonner Family consists of parents Harry and Debra Bonner and their four sons—Mauli, Yahosh, Conlon, O/B/A—and four daughters: Nolong, Yunga, Clotile, Oyoyo. They each have successful careers in music or acting. Seven of the eight have graduated from college. Their son Junior (Mauli Jr.) works with pop stars such as Katy Perry and Ariana Grande and composes. He wrote the soundtrack for the Excel Entertainment film, Jane and Emma. The Bonner Family recorded music for the soundtrack.
They were also part of the recent gala celebrating the 95th birthday of Church president Russell M. Nelson (September 6, 2019), and were part of the 2018 “Be One” celebration, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the revelation extending the priesthood to all worthy male members of the Church.
The Bonner Family joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while living in Las Vegas. “Without the gospel, I worry that we would’ve been another statistic, and I think my parents knew that,” Junior says. “My mom [also] attributes the teachers and the bishops and the home teachers for helping to raise us, and I believe that as well.”
