Cher has been recording successfully for over 35 years because of her captivating ability to reinvent herself. Since becoming a solo artist after her break up with her former husband Sonny, Cher has released over 25 albums, earned a Grammy Award, Emmy Award, Academy Award, three Golden Globes and several Billboard Music Awards along with being a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She has been by far one of the most talented and successful artists for decades.
Her career took off when she and her former husband had their hit "I Got You, Babe." Making it her life style of fame and music, she then decided to start her acting career in which she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in 1985. She is one of the most talented women for her acting, singing, comedy, and her "Best Dance Recording."
Not only does Cher put on an amazing show, but also she has so much history and depth to her that you could watch her perform for days. However, in 2004, Cher was told that because of her health, she would no longer be able to perform live. Because of this she started her last world-wide tour (the Farwell Tour) which is her best and most spectacular tour yet. Even though she has no sign of when this tour may end, because she has now booked more venues, you can never be too sure, so this is could be a last chance opportunity to see Cher.
Cher is the only female solo artist to reach the Top Ten of the Billboard Hot 100 in each of the previous four decades. Her hit dance single "Believe" is her biggest-selling recording and was the best-selling single of 1999, having sold over 10 million copies worldwide. She holds the Hot 100 record for the longest hit-making career span, with 33 years between the release of her first and most recent #1 singles, in 1965 and 1999. Cher ended her 3-year-long "Farewell Tour" in 2005 as the most successful tour by a female solo artist of all time.
