    CHER, through her incomparable voice, her trademark wit, and her charismatic presence, has established herself as a tireless, compelling performer of inestimable talent and unstoppable drive.  Her contributions in music, television, stage and film have garnered countless accolades and awards and the admiration of generations of fans. 

    Cher's iconic performance as Loretta Castorini in Norman Jewison's Moonstruck won her both an Academy Award® and Golden Globe Award.  Her work in Peter Bogdanovich's Mask won her the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival.  For Mike Nichols' Silkwood, co-starring Meryl Streep and Kurt Russell, Cher was nominated for both a Golden Globe and Academy Award®.  Her additional film credits include a diverse body of roles in Mermaids, The Witches of Eastwick, Suspect, Faithful, Stuck on You and Tea with Mussolini.

    As a musician, Cher's career began with 'I Got You Babe,' an overnight sensation for the singer and husband and collaborator Sonny Bono.  Further hit singles followed, including hits 'The Beat Goes On' and 'Baby Don't Go.' 

    Their music and memorable television appearances segued into a hit series of Sonny and Cher's own.  With Bono, Cher is counted among the pioneers of variety television.  Melding music and humor, Sonny and Cher created a unique, winningly sarcastic ambience that was fresh and familiar to television viewers.  Cher won a Golden Globe in 1971 for 'The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour.'  The program was nominated for four Emmy® Awards and introduced Cher's comedic and musical talents to audiences across America. 

    Cher's solo music career began with number one hits 'Gypsies, Tramps & Thieves' and 'Half-Breed,' and extended through decades to include 'Dark Lady,' 'Train Of Thought,' 'I Found Someone,' 'After All' (with Peter Cetera), 'If I Could Turn Back Time,' 'Save Up All Your Tears,' 'Love And Understanding,' 'Believe,' and 'Strong Enough.' 

    With a beloved catalog, Cher embarked on a global 'Farewell Tour' tour that lasted nearly three years and three hundred and twenty-five dates. The televised 'Cher: The Farewell Tour' also won Cher her first Emmy® for Outstanding Variety, Comedy or Music Special.

    Never content to remain idle, 'Farewell' led to a breathtaking stage show at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, which has enchanted over two hundred thousand of her fans (and counting). 

    Additionally, Cher directed and starred in a segment for HBO's critically-acclaimed, award winning telefilm 'If These Walls Could Talk.'  Her performance in the omnibus garnered Cher a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

    Leaving no artistic stone unturned, Cher made her Broadway debut with 'Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean' in 1983.  She later reprised the role in Robert Altman's film adaptation, starring alongside Sandy Dennis and Karen Black.
