My two all-time Cher favorites are "Half-Breed" and "Heart of Gold." Cher was always one of my favorite singers. I loved her deep voice, and her mysterious persona. I remember reading an interview she gave to some magazine years back, in which she said she didn't care whether she sang or acted or really what she did in life, but her goal was to become famous. Well, she has certainly done that! What a legacy she leaves behind! She is truly a rags-to-riches success story--someone who embodies the American dream! Job well done, Cher!

Happy Birthday Cher!

Cher has won an Academy Award, a Grammy award, an Emmy award, three Golden Globe awards, and the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival. She has sold more than 100 million solo albums and over 40 million records as Sonny & Cher worldwide. She is the only artist to date to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in each of the past six decades.

She's A Total Goddess!!

'Believe'
Released in 1998, sold 7,886,272 copies
Clearly, Cher's number one selling single of all-time is this 1998 dance hit. It topped the charts in most of the the world's top music markets – US, UK, Germany, France – paving the way for its identically-titled parent album to become a huge-seller. Of course, the song with its famous electronically-enhanced vocals has became a staple part of Cher's live shows, being the encore to each concert she has performed since the song's worldwide success.
