a good story
31 October 2003 | by (england) – See all my reviews

Sonny & Cher have to be one of the best lot ever. I enjoyed watching the sonny and cher story as i got to know why Cher was single after when she split up with Sonny. I was shocked to discover that Sonny had passed away after an accident in a skiing adventure. Now i know what the true story is with Sonny and Cher. I never knew that Sonny was married to Cher and never knew that they sung together. it all now gives me the ture story of one of the best singers and best couples of Sonny and Cher. God Bless you Sonny and Cher.
