Cher has made her return to our television screens after 10 years. Last night on NBC’s The Voice Season Four finale the music legend debuted her new single Woman’s World.
Her new album titled Closer to the Truth is due to come out this coming September.
The 67 year-old singer looked as extravagant as she has in the past with her fuschia spiked up hair. She worked the crowds which seemed to respond favorably as did the coaches. She is the ultimate performer.
Cher’s last TV performance was also broadcast on NBC, in the 2003 in the special Cher: The Farewell Tour, which attracted 17 million viewers.
Her last album Living Proof was released in 2001 and included the dance hits (This Is) A Song for the Lonely” and A Different Kind of Love Song.
Cher has been a strong female role model in the music industry. She is not only a singer, but an actress and dancer as well. She came to prominence in 1965 as part of the folk rock duo, Sonny and Cher. Sonny Bono and Cher ended up getting married, but later divorced.
As a guest of The Voice, she offered some advice to young artists in a Tuesday interview:
“You don’t deal with it. You just try to get a place where no one can find you and that’s your little sanctuary. I have a fabulous house that I love and it’s my sanctuary.”
Cher referred to reality TV singing competitions as “a modern incarnation of classic star-makers like The Ed Sullivan Show and Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts.
“It’s just another vehicle, you know what I mean? Talent is talent.” she said while answering questions on the red carpet following the finale which crowned 16-year-old country singer Danielle Bradbery the winner.
The singer said that her success is mostly due to luck and not necessarily talent. Cher stated that, “If you have an idea, you tell me because I haven’t got a clue.”
