Believe

By |

From singing backup vocals on Phil Spector’s glorious Wall of Sound productions as a teen to six decades of Number One hits in the pop, rock and dance spheres, Cherilyn Sarkisian LaPiere has always been at the forefront of musical trends. Add to those achievements her recording of “Believe,” the very song that introduced the Auto-Tune altered-vocal effect to pop music. And when it, too, reached Number One, Cher became the oldest female artist to top the U.S. singles charts, at age 52. When asked if she actually does believe in a life after love, the pop diva replied, “Definitely. I’ve experienced it. It’s been a long time; I’ve never been alone this long.”
