If you could turn back time, chances are Cher would still be playing on the radio when you got there. Since her rise to superstardom in the '60s as one half of Sonny & Cher, the legendary diva has enjoyed a 50-year reign over the world of pop, making her the only recording artist to have a No. 1 hit in each of the past six decades. Between 2002-2005, she performed a record-breaking 325 concerts on her Living Proof: The Farewell Tour, but despite the tour's ominous title it was far from the end — in 2013 Cher released her 25th studio album Closer to the Truth, thrilling fans around the world with the announcement of the 2014 Dressed to Kill Tour.
Born Cherilyn Sarkisian in El Centro, California, Cher moved to Hollywood at age 16 to pursue entertainment, working as a backup singer and dancer on the Sunset Strip to make ends meet. After meeting Sonny Bono, the pair began recording as Sonny & Cher, rising to international superstardom in 1965 with the release of chart-topping folk classic "I Got You Babe." Launching her solo career that same year, Cher has gone on to establish one of the longest running and most decorated tenures in pop, selling over 100 million records and joining a select group of artists who have won both a Grammy and an Oscar.
