Cher (born Cherilyn Sarkisian on May 20, 1946) is an American actress and singer of Armenian descent (from father's side). She rose to prominence in the 1960s as a member of the duo Sonny & Cher, then as a solo artist when the duo ended in 1974. She has sold over 100 million records worldwide since the start of her solo career.

In a career that has now surpassed 40 years, Cher has established herself as a pop icon. She is one of the most enduring entertainers of her time, having sold over 100 million records solo and 80 million records as half of Sonny & Cher.

From sequined spectacle to luminous Oscar-winner; TV vamp to Billboard's longest running chart-topper, Cher's success in music, film, television, and on stage qualifies her as one of the most enduring entertainers of our time. In a career defined, and redefined as much by dramatic missteps and spectacular recoveries, the chief constant has been her seemingly limitless determination.

Cher recently completed her 4 year Farewell Tour, to which she played over 325 Shows around the world! The Guinness Book of World Records dubbed it the Highest Grossing Tour by a female artist.

Recently it was announced that Cher is to replace Celine Dion in Vegas when Celine's run at Caesar's Palace is up in 2008.
