Cher figured out how to rise like a phoenix from the remains each time she was down, some way or another re-designing herself with consistently and winding up on top once more. As a vocalist, Cher is the entertainer to have earned “top 10” hit singles in four continuous decades; as an entertainer, she and Barbra Streisand are the main two Best Actress Oscar victors to have a #1 hit tune on the Billboard graphs. At age 62, Cher still can’t seem to choose to get totally off her exciting ride, even though she has taken steps to now and again.
The little girl of Arkansas-conceived Georgia Holt (the previous Jackie Jean Crouch) and truck driver John Sarkisian, was conceived in El Centro, California, on May 20, 1946. She has a sister, Georganne LaPierre. Cher is of Armenian legacy on her dad’s side, and of English and German, with more removed Irish, Dutch, and French, legacy on her mom’s side. The dad abandoned the family when Cher was youthful, and her mom later wedded broker Gilbert LaPierre. Her mom, who sought to be an entertainer and model, paid for Cher’s acting classes. Cher had undiscovered dyslexia, which intensely influenced her investigations; disappointed, she quit Fresno High School at 16 to seek after her fantasy. Around then, she had a concise relationship with entertainer Warren Beatty.
