Singer, survivor and the ultimate style icon! As Cher celebrates her 70th birthday we turn back time to look at the star's most memorable moments.
From her early days in the Seventies performing with her then-husband Sonny Bono in the hugely popular Sonny And Cher to later becoming a superstar in her own right and scoring a slew of coveted accolades including an Oscar, a Grammy, an Emmy and three Golden Globes – this multi-talented performer is success personified.
But for Cher – real name Cherilyn Sarkisian – there was no other option than achieving dizzying-levels of triumph.
“When I was a little girl, I saw Cinderella with my mother. I started singing the songs from it, and I told her, ‘This is what I am going to do.’ I was 3, and I never changed my mind. I wanted to be famous. I wanted this,” she once told Parade Magazine of her resolute determination.
Fast forward to 2016 and famous is an understatement. Worth around $USD305 million and with over 100 million records sold world-wide, Cher has truly cemented her legendary status as one of the most iconic and influential figures in the entertainment industry.
