Cher is undeniably a notable pop icon – a great singer and songwriter, particularly in the pop scene. She is also an actress, TV host, film director, music and film producer, fashion designer, model, dancer, and entrepreneur. In the world of music, she is recognized to have brought the sense of independence and self-actualization for women of this industry. She has also become famous for her distinctive vocal prowess that made her tagged as the Goddess of Pop.
It was in 1965 when Cher became prominent as a solo artist after her successful collaboration with her former husband, Sonny. Included to her remarkable hits during the first few years of her solo career are “Gypsys, Tramps, & Thieves”, “Dark Lady”, “Half-Breed”, and “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down”. These singles also made her known as the pioneer to the advancement of feminine revolt in the world of rock. She was also considered to have set the standard for attitude and appearance in the music genre she stepped into.
In the 70s, Cher made a comeback as a TV personality and fashion trendsetter as she was experimenting with her daring outfits and new musical styles such as disco and new wave. The next decade witnessed her blossoming as a Broadway superstar. She also starred in the movie “Silkwood” where she was nominated as the Best Supporting Actress of the 1983 Academy Awards. It was also the era where she earned platinum albums. Her successful singles during that time include “If I Could Turn Back” and “I Found Someone”.
It took sometime before Cher re-entered the music scene in the late 90s. Her monster hit single “Believe” in 1998 marked her commercial peak. It was actually the song that pioneered the application of Auto-Tune, which was also nicknamed as the “Cher Effect”. She then stayed behind the limelight in most years of the 2000s decade. After that, she returned in the 2010s when she starred with her fellow pop icon, Christina Aguilera in the musical film, Burlesque. The movie’s success was then followed last year by the release of her latest album, “Closer to the Truth”. This studio album was her first in the last eleven years of her music career (since 2002). It actually became her highest-charting album as a solo artist so far.
Perhaps, among the highlights in her career – both in music and film – are her three Golden Globe Awards. She also garnered awards from other prestigious award-giving bodies, which include her Acadamy Award, Grammy Award, Emy Award, and Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival. Moreover, she is listed as one of the all-time highest-selling music icons for selling more than 100 million albums throughout her solo career. Adding to that is her distinction as the only artist up to this point to have earned at least a number 1 single on the Billboard chart in each of the last six decades (1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s).
