Sonny & Cher:
Cher met performer Sonny Bono in 1962, and began working as his housekeeper. Sonny introduced her to record producer Phil Spector, and Cher began to work as a backup singer. Sonny and Cher developed a close relationship ending as lovers and began performing together. They released their first single “I Got You Babe” as the musical duo Sonny & Cher in July 1965, and it’s success propelled Cher into stardom.
Sonny & Cher’s first studio album “Look at Us” (1965) helped them have 5 songs in the Billboard Top 50 at the same time, a feat that had only been accomplished by the Beatles and Elvis Presley.
While enjoying success with Sonny, Cher also had a successful solo career. Cher signed with Liberty Records’ Imperial imprint in 1964, releasing albums “All I Really Want to Do” (1965), “The Sonny Side of Cher” (1966) and “Chér” (1966). Her single “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down” (1966) was her first solo single to sell a million copies.
As Sonny & Cher declined in popularity, Cher’s solo career thrived. Cher recorded the album “3614 Jackson Highway” in 1969, and it was her first musical project that was made without Sonny’s guidance and input. Sonny & Cher were offered their own television program, and thus began “The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour” which premiered in 1971.
Following the couple’s contentious divorce, which was finalized in 1975, Cher started on a truly solo career.
Cher signed a $2.5 million deal with Warner Bros. Records, releasing the critically and commercially unsuccessful album “Stars” (1975), which has since become a cult classic.
Cher returned to television with her own show “Cher” in 1975, and then eventually reunited with ex-husband Sonny professionally on “The Sonny and Cher Show” (1976-1977).
Cher continued to produce music, and has released over twenty studio albums. Cher had a residency in Las Vegas from 1980 to 1982 which earned her $300 thousand per week. Cher headlined for 3 years at the Colosseum at Caesars starting in 2008 and reportedly grossed $180 million from the series.
Cher Acting Career:
Cher’s initial ventures into acting were “Good Times” (1967), produced together with Sonny, and the film “Chastity” (1969), which was written and directed by Sonny and funded by the couple. Both were unsuccessful.
Cher was cast by director Robert Altman in the Broadway production “Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean” in 1976, playing the same role again in the 1982 film adaptation with the same title. Cher credits Altman and this opportunity with launching her career.
Cher formed her own film production company Isis in 1985, and continued on to star in films such as “Mask” (1985), “The Witches of Eastwick” (1987), “Moonstruck” (1987), “Mermaids” (1990), “Tea with Mussolini” (1999) and “Burlesque” (2010).
