American Indian Biography: Cher - Half Breed [Official Music Video]

Cher is a performer of world renown.  She has sung since she was a child, and then became a serious actor.  Her mother was of Cherokee and French descent, and consequently her song, "Half-breed."  As a younger man, I remember watching the Sonny and Cher show.  Sonny Bono, and Cher were a husband and wife team, that had been performing together for many years before they were part of the variety show.  Sonny and Cher's first big hit was "I Got You Babe" which was always their trade mark.
However after eleven years of marriage, they divorced, but remained friends.  With their separation their singing group also broke up as did the variety show.  Sonny Bono went into politics.  Cher continued as a performing artist, but also became a movie star with "The Witches of Eastwick," "Moonstruck" and "Mask."  She won an Oscar for Moonstruck.  She also became heavily involved in humanitarian causes including the International Carniofacial Foundation which was the theme of the movie "Mask."
Sonny Bono turned to politics.  He became a congressman.  He died in a skiing accident.  Cher appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and presented a short biographical picture of her life.
