Sonny & Cher

One of the most iconic and recognizable couples in recent musical history, Sonny & Cher were an American husband-and-wife duo who began their career as backup singers for producer Phil Spector. They jumped to fame in 1965 with the hits “Baby Don’t Go” and “I Got You Babe,” which debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100 and reached Number 1 in both the UK and Canada. Together, they released three incredibly popular studio full-lengths in the late 60s—Look at Us (1965), The Wondrous World of Sonny and Cher (1966), and In Case You’re in Love (1967)—and were nominated for two Grammy awards. After contributing to the soundtrack of the movies Good Times and Chastity, Sonny & Cher returned in 1972 with the album All I Ever Need Is You, followed by Mama Was a Rock and Roll Singer, Papa Used to Write All Her Songs in 1974. During that time, they also produced two Top 10 TV shows in the United States, The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour and The Sonny & Cher Show. Following their divorce in 1975, Cher went on to enjoy great success as a solo artist and actress, while Sonny Bono was elected to Congress as a representative for the Republican Party. In 1998, the duo was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame after Sonny Bono’s death in a skiing accident.
