On this day in 1946, Cherilyn Sarkisian was born in El Centro, California, just 103 miles east of me. You might know her by her preferred name, simply Cher.

Cher’s career started in 1965 when she and her husband, Sonny Bono, hit the big time with “I Got You Babe” which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Between 1965 and 1972, Sonny & Cher had eleven singles hit the American Top 40, with six of them hitting the Top 10. Sonny & Cher divorced in June 1975.

Cher has reinvented herself as times changed and is the only person to have received an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

My favorite Cher songs:

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)
1966, Peaked at #2
