Cher has recorded many types of music in her illustrious career, but she has never recorded a Christmas album. Many fans would love to hear her belt out several classic and contemporary holiday tunes again, but she has not yet indulged in this fun music genre on the scale of a full album. However, she has dabbled in Christmas tunes through the years.
Cher recorded a very modern rendition of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” a song better known by the recording K.T. Tunstall did. The song was featured on Rosie O’Donnell’s “A Rosie Christmas” CD, which was released in 1999. It was very popular, reaching #20 in the charts and receiving quite a lot of praise. The credits to the song are Cher as a duet with Rosie, but it is Cher’s voice we hear predominantly in the tune.
Well before this popular recording, Cher enjoyed Christmas specials alongside her then-husband Sonny Bono on their television show. Now available on DVD as “The Sonny & Cher Christmas Collection,” fans can enjoy seeing a 1970s Cher singing such songs as “Jingle Bells” (which just so happens to be he opening song to all three specials that are included on the DVD). Other songs include “Oh Holy Night,” and the Christmas comedy sketches with Cher are must-see TV.
Those who have grown to love and support Chaz Bono after his performances on “Dancing With the Stars” will enjoy seeing him as a very young child known as Chastity giving a nuanced, quite adorable performance of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.”
