The performer known as Cher, initially famous in Sonny & Cher and born Cherilyn Sarkisian, has been in show business for five and a half decades. Her style choices range from glamorous to outrageous, with sexy being the theme, time and again. The iconic Cher took Hollywood by storm at a very young age, as performing partner for her boyfriend Sonny, singing their hit "I Got You Babe." But you didn't have to be a talent scout to see that Cher's showbiz potential (much like her physical stature) far exceeded that of her partner.

When Cher was just 16 years old, she dropped out of high school to move to Los Angeles with a friend. She was in search of stardom but little did the world of entertainment know what was about to happen. Cher made it her business to seek out each and every opportunity that could further her career; even taking a housekeeping job from Sonny Bono, just to get an audition with Phil Spector, for whom he worked at the time.
