There are few musical artists that fall in that final echelon; the one described with words like “legendary” and “timeless”. Rising to fame in the ’60s with her husband Sonny Bono, Cher has been performing almost non-stop in a truly epic career that has spanned six decades, continuously reinventing both the pop and folk genres as well as herself.
With her distinctive low-register contralto vocals and faceted talent and persona, the goddess of pop has won an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy, three Golden Globes, and Best actress at Cannes, just to name a few non-music awards. Because in the music realm, she’s on rarified ground having sold over 100 million solo albums, and 40 million as Sonny & Cher. Remember those six decades? She is the only artist in the history of recorded music to have a number-one single in that many consecutive decades.
