Cher Receives Kennedy Center Honors

Cher was honored with a lifetime achievement award at the Kennedy Center Honors program celebrating cultural achievement on Sunday.

Whoopi Goldberg paid a hilarious tribute to the 72-year-old pop music icon at the event.

“She not only marches to the beat of her own drum, honey, she is a one-woman band,” the legendary actress said.

Cyndi Lauper, who surprised Cher by being present on the occasion, delivered an electrifying performance of “If I Could Turn Back Time.”

Speaking on the red carpet before the event, Cher said, “I never thought I was the right person for this because I’m a little bit out there.”

In addition to Cher, country music legend Reba McEntire, saxophonist/composer Wayne Shorter and composer Philip Glass were also given the lifetime achievement award.

Hosted by Gloria Estefan, the program started with a memorial to late President George H.W. Bush.
