It’s no doubt that everyone in the world knows of Cher’s incredible career.
Starting out as one half of the folk-rock duo Sonny & Cher, the pop queen soon found success as a solo artist and even went on to do well in television and on the big screen in many films.
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.
The Story Of Cher And Sonny
Cher met Sonny in 1962 when he worked for record producer Phil Spector. Cher knew that to have a chance at fame, she would need to somehow work with Spector. After spending time at the studio, Sonny offered Cher the job as his housekeeper which she quickly accepted. She started off singing backup with the singer but soon Cher had Spector produce her first album, Ringo, I Love You.
