Georgia Holt, Cher’s mother, passed away over the weekend at 96.
Holt was a singer-songwriter, actress, producer, and model. Her roles in “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet” are probably what most people remember her for. In addition to “I Love Lucy,” “Father’s Little Dividend,” and “Lovely to Look At,” she also starred in those films in 1956.
The 1980s-era recordings for Holt’s 2013 debut album, “Honky Tonk Woman,” were her first recordings.
In 2013, a Life documentary titled “Dear Mom, Love Cher” featured Holt as its subject, according to USA Today. Holt, her daughters Cher and Georganne LaPiere and Cher’s children Chaz Bono and Elijah Blue Allman, also known as P, were interviewed during the hour-long program. Plymouth Blue.
After finding the previously unreleased album Holt made with Elvis Presley’s band in 1980, she got the idea for the documentary.
Cher repaired the tapes and recorded her mother talking and singing to accompany them. The modest project Cher had in mind to honour her mother on her 86th birthday evolved into something much bigger and more complex.
Before pursuing stardom as a singer and actor in Hollywood, Holt, born in 1926 to a mother who was 13 and a father who was 20, started her career as a young girl singing in Oklahoma saloons.
Cher’s mother divorced her first husband, a truck driver named John Sarkisian, shortly after Cher was born and gave birth to her in a Catholic orphanage.
In “Dear Mom,” Cher said in 2013, “I heard the abortion story as a teenager.”.
“My mother’s experience growing up in an orphanage was challenging, and she opted not to discuss it. I questioned my mother, “Mom, why didn’t you just march in and take me?”. She said, “I didn’t have the power.”. The religion was very strong, I didn’t have any money, and I didn’t have a job. You used to be crying every time I went to see you. You have no idea how that felt. Women had it harder back then, I remember. “.
Her mother passes away when Cher’s life seems to be going so well. It wasn’t until recently that she made headlines by disclosing that she was dating a man who was 36 years younger than her.
That man is a 36-year-old music producer named Alexander Edwards.
She insisted that the rest of Cher’s family had already met Edwards and added, “love doesn’t know math!”. Most likely in response to those who questioned the two new lovebirds’ significant age disparity, she remarked.
According to Cher, Edwards and she first connected during the October Paris Fashion Week. Their relationship is still in the honeymoon stage, but we don’t profess to be mathematical geniuses.
Nevertheless, a lot of Cher’s fans expressed how happy it made them to see her happy.
Cher replied, “As we All Know….,” to those fans who were more protective of her and may have viewed Edwards as a threat.
Every time you choose, you’re taking a chance. It’s just who I am. I’ve always taken risks. “.
The 76-year-old referred to the couple’s age difference by saying, “Love doesn’t know math.”. Some people meet, while others recognise one another, said Rinpoche to me. “
Rest In peace Georgia Holt 😢 so sad, but what an amazing life and you gave to world the most amazing gift, thinking of you @cher . ❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/68l5BwWws3

Cher has experienced enough to make one believe that she is more than capable of recognising warning signs if they are present. Alongside husband Sonny Bono, the singer, actress, and television personality has gained popularity since the 1960s and has quickly ascended to dizzying heights at the top of the music business.
Contrarily, despite lacking the legendary Cher’s name and brand, Edwards has achieved some success in the music business. He is the A&R vice president at the well-known record label, with Rihanna, Nas, Public Enemy, and Justin Bieber on its artist roster. Just 36 years old, he is.
One of the most complex experiences any of us will ever other.
Cher is in our thoughts and prayers during this terrible time, and we hope she can summon the fortitude to endure.
