TORONTO, April 16, 2019 /CNW/ - SiriusXM Canada, the country's leading audio entertainment company, announced today that the one and only Cher and her music will be celebrated on the new, exclusive limited-run The Cher Channel on SiriusXM beginning April 17.
The Cher Channel, will showcase music from Cher's wide-ranging career, including her indelible hits as well as her musical influences. The channel will also feature a collection of recordings from every era of Cher's decades-long multi-award winning career along with stories from the legend about her music, her life and her legacy. Additionally, The Cher Channel will also feature music from the just released original cast album for The Cher Show, the new bio musical currently playing on Broadway at the Neil Simon Theatre.
SiriusXM's The Cher Channel will launch on Wednesday, April 17 at 12:00 pm ET and run through Wednesday, May 1 at 3:00 am ET on SiriusXM radios (channel 4) and on the SiriusXM app.
"I can't imagine anyone doing a better job with my music than the brilliant cast of 'The Cher Show' and I'm looking forward to talking about the show and my career on the new SiriusXM channel," commented Cher.
"Working with Cher these last three years has confirmed everything I always thought about this extraordinary icon: She's brilliant, she's brave, and she is one of the greatest artists of our time," said producer Jeffrey Seller. "The Cher Channel on SiriusXM is a perfect way for fans to get even deeper into the inspiration that is Cher."
For six straight decades, only one unstoppable force has flat-out dominated popular culture — breaking down barriers, pushing boundaries, and letting nothing and no one stand in her way. The Cher Show is her story, and it's packed with so much Cher that it takes three women to play her: The kid starting out, the glam pop star and the icon. The Cher Show is 35 smash hits, six decades of stardom, two rock-star husbands, a Grammy, an Oscar, an Emmy, and enough Bob Mackie gowns to cause a sequins shortage in New York City, all in one unabashedly fabulous new musical.
Cher is currently on tour with her critically acclaimed "Here We Go Again" Tour and most recently received a Kennedy Center Honor.
