Cher: Strong Enough (Paperback)
Sixty years and 100 million album sales after first appearing on the music scene as one half of pop duo 'Sonny and Cher', the Academy Award-winning singer and actress is an authentic American icon. Throughout Cher's astonishing career -- which has encompassed televisual triumphs, a string of international hit singles, sell-out tours, an Oscar statuette for Moonstruck, and a Las Vegas residency -- her personal life has continually made front (and back) page news. In the shadow of her success, Cher has been linked with many high-profile men, married and divorced twice (the second time to rock superstar Gregg Allman), battled with depression, defied network censors, and dealt with the tragedy of Sonny Bono's early death. Including exclusive interviews with Cher and those she has worked with on- and off-stage, Cher: Strong Enough documents the ins and outs and ups and downs of a one-name American icon -- Cher -- at her outrageous best.
