Happy Birthday CHER, aka “Bonnie Jo Mason”
She had hits in the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s. She won an Oscar for Moonstruck. She had great TV success on The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. She's 71 today, and has few original parts (kidding). Did you know that she recorded under numerous aliases? She and Sonny were once known as Caesar and Cleo. She also released a single under the name Cherilyn. Her most unusual alias can be seen below - on a tribute to Ringo Starr under the name of BONNIE JO MASON. The song is very short, not unlike Sonny. It was a Phil Spector production.
