Born Cherilyn Sakasian LaPierre.
Started her career as a backing singer for The Ronettes at a 1963 session. The
producer (Phil Spector)'s assistant was Sonny Bono and he was soon guiding her
career. By 1964 they were married and releasing singles as a duo (See: Sonny & Cher).
Although the hits had dried up by the late sixties, the pair hosted their own
highly successful TV series, a feat that Cher was to emulate after their divorce in
A brief marriage to Gregg AlIman of the AlIman Brothers Band followed but her solo
career didn't recover until 1979 with the single, "Take Me Home". The eighties saw
her biggest hits mainly done in a hard melodic rock style. Slick videos and
minimalist clothing contributed to her success.
She also broadened her career into acting with a string of screen successes that led
to several Oscar nominations. Her performance in 1987's "Moonstruck" won her that
year's award for best actress.
