I was watching the Bette Midler movie “Beaches” the other day and thought what an astounding woman she is – she’s a talented singer and an actress.  My mind then wandered to Barbara Streisand whom I would class in a similar category.  Then it hit me –
Cher!  Here’s a woman who can sing the pants off many youngsters today and boy can she act!  Let’s take a brief look at her career… 

She first ‘came about’ as Sonny & Cher in the hit ‘60s single “I’ve got you babe”.  She weaned her way into the acting world and gave us an incredible performance in Mask.  Movies such as Silkwood, The Witches of Eastwick and Moonstruck followed.  She is one of the few to have received an Academy Award, an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her acting achievements!  Her hit single Believe sold over 100 million copies worldwide. 

Cher has given us 40 years of film and music, so please tell me why she hasn’t received a Lifetime Achievement Award for her contribution to the entertainment industry?  Or has she? 

This may be small in comparison to a Lifetime Award but this is my tribute to you
Cher – a raised glass to years of awesome entertainment!
