It’s no doubt that everyone in the world knows of Cher’s incredible career.
Cher, also known as the Goddess of Pop, has graced our eyes and ears since she was one half of the folk rock duo Sonny & Cher. Cher transitioned from music to television and later to film, showing us that she is the definition of a triple threat.
It was 1965 when she and Sonny started singing together, followed by their very successful The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour show. Sonny and Cher were a couple for the ages and showed a facade of two people who loved each other as much as can be. They shared a daughter together, Chastity, who later in life transitioned into a man, Chaz.
Cher has had several musical lives so to speak, meaning that she has had many hits that have had several years in between. Cher has been able to revive her career time and time again, most recently being the subject of a Broadway play! Cher has been married twice in her life, once to Sonny Bono and once to Gregg Allman. She has two children, Chaz and Elijah. Her film career has been as successful as her musical one. Cher has won an Emmy Award, Academy Award, Grammy Award, three Golden Globe Awards and a Cannes Film Festival Award!
Some of the films that have put Cher on the map are Silkwood, Mask, The Witches of Eastwick, Moonstruck, Mermaids, and Burlesque, to name a few. Her television appearances as herself way outnumber her film roles but her time in front of the big screen made her the revered actress that she is today. She can sing, dance and act, like we said – a true triple threat. Check out the little known facts about the life of the woman we know and love.
What you may not know is that Cher has had quite a dramatic personal life, and what she hasn’t told us through her music or interviews, we can now reveal…
Born To Be A Star
When Cher was in the fifth grade she organized her fellow students to put on a performance of Oklahoma which was to be put on for her teacher and classmates. Apparently she was forced to play the parts of all the men in the show as none of the boys in her class wanted to participate in the play.
