It's a testament to the long-lasting and adaptive nature of Cher's music that her biggest selling hit came over 30 years into her career. That single, "Believe," propelled her back into the spotlight in 1998, revamping her 80s diva image with a more dance oriented sound that resonated with younger generations. Relative to the elaborate stage shows and over the top wardrobes she's now known for, Cher's beginnings were a little more subdued, performing hits like "I Got You Babe" with husband and collaborator, Sonny Bono, throughout the 60s and 70s. In the 80s, she continued to thrive as a solo artist and also branched out into the world of film, where she won the Best Actress trophy at the 1988 Academy Awards for her performance in Moonstruck.
