Sonny and Cher

Sonny and Cher was an American rock and roll duo, made up of husband and wife team Sonny Bono and Cher in the 60s and 70s. They were the first hippies with mainstream appeal.

The couple hosted a number of television series and specials, including The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour in 1971, The Sonny and Cher Show in 1976. Their on-stage banter added to their audience appeal, with Sonny's eagerness and Cher's putdowns.

The marriage and the musical duo ended in 1975 when Bono and Cher were divorced.

The couple made a surprise impromtu reunion performance in the 1980s on NBC's Late Night with David Letterman where they performed their hit song "I Got You Babe".
