Calling themselves Caesar and Cleo, they began making music together. After years of recording and touring, they married and became the worldwide sensation known as Sonny & Cher. By 1971, millions were tuning in every week to watch their hit television show, The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour.
When they divorced in 1975, Cher's beat went on without Sonny. Throughout the '70s, she wowed fans with extravagant outfits, outrageous hairdos and hits like "Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves."
In the '80s, Cher traded in her glittery disco duds for fishnets and leather. She reinvented herself as a rocker with the release of the anthem "If I Could Turn Back Time." During the next decade, she topped the charts with "Believe," the best-selling pop single of her career.
To this day, Cher is the only female artist to have a top 10 hit in every decade for the past 40 years. She's also a Grammy, Emmy, Golden Globe and Oscar® winner.
At age 61, Cher's showing no signs of slowing down.
