C is for Cher
As I mentioned in my theme-reveal post, this month will be all about music and how it inspires my writing.
Today I’m also participating in the Insecure Writer’s Support Group monthly blog hop.
For “C”, I decided to only look at one iconic star: Cher.
I grew up with her music on the radio. She was a household name. But I truly took interest in her music when “Believe” came out. The things I know about her can sound a bit stalker-y, so we’ll leave it at: I’m a fan.
As an artist (yes, writers are artists), what I appreciate about her is her tenacity, that she goes for what she wants without apology, and that she was able to create a successful career out of what she loves doing. She did that through her entire career – and that great woman is now in her seventies. Imagine having a long lasting career like that… You can learn more about her by clicking the link tied to her name above and by reading this article in “Rolling Stone“.
Favourite album: “Believe”. Favourite song: “Believe”.
Word of the day: cabaret.
According to Collins English dictionary: cabaret n 1 a floor show of dancing, singing, or other light entertainment at a nightclub or restaurant 2 chiefly US a nightclub or restaurant providing such entertainment
Have you seen Cher in the movie “Burlesque”? Now that’s great cabaret. See the video clip below for a taste.
How does this tie in to the IWSG this month? Obviously we all want mega success like Cher. And how will we do it?
Do you like Cher? Do you have a favourite music group/artist that starts with a “C”?
