Cher grew up looking up to the late British actress Audrey Hepburn, and was 16 when she dropped out of high school and moved to Los Angeles to begin taking both singing and acting classes, and earned money by dancing in clubs.
She released her debut studio album “All I Really Want to Do” in 1965, and it peaked at #16 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Having previously founded the duo Caeser & Cleo together with American actor and singer Salvatore Phillip ‘Sonny’ Bono, the duo renamed themselves to Sonny & Cher in 1965, and released the song “I Got You Babe”, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
Cher released several albums in the first half of the ‘70s, including “All I Ever Need is You” and “Live in Las Vegas Vol. 2”. The following decade saw the decline of her popularity, and it was her 1979 album “Take Me Home” that was her comeback.
She then ventured into the film industry, and for her performance in the 1983 biographical movie “Silkwood”, which starred Meryl Streep, was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, while she won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture. Her first lead role was in the 1985 biographical movie “Mask”, which was both a commercial and critical success.
Cher has since taken a couple of breaks from singing, but has always been able to come back in style; she’s won at least one of some of the most prestigious awards for both singing and acting, including an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, a Billboard Icon Award, and a Cannes Film Festival Award.
She’s been married twice: to Sonny Bono from 1964 to 1975, and to Gregg Allman from 1975 to 1979.
Cher’s a philanthropist and a supporter of the LGBT community, while she’s donated money to various charity organizations aiming to improve the quality of life for underprivileged children, as well as to various animal shelters.
