Nicki Bluhm has no blood relation to Cher but throughout her life she has felt an undeniable kinship. It all started in 1985 when she was a six-year-old girl standing in line with her mother at a Northern California supermarket. Looking up at the magazine racks with big brown doe-eyes, Nicki saw her mother on the cover of the National Enquirer…or so she thought. The striking resemblance between Cher and her own mother left a lasting impression. Cher became like a distant relative in her childlike imagination. As life went on, Nicki continued watching films staring Cher; her favorites being Mask, The Witches of Eastwick,Mermaids, and, of course, her mother’s favorite movie Moonstruckwith Cher playing an Italian-American (like Nicki) who begrudgingly falls in love with a man that’s hard to love.
Cher’s uniquely daring style combined with the constant visual comparisons she would get to Cher from strangers, piqued Nicki's curiosity and this inexplicable connectivity continued to grow. When she began exploring Cher's deep musical catalog, Nicki found the early work beginning in 1965 as one-half of the folk-rock husband-wife duo Sonny & Cher leading into the beginnings of Cher's solo career most intriguing. The love and respect for the music and the excitement of trying something new inspired the idea of performing some of her favorite Cher songs at her own live show.
This coming May Nicki and her band will be touring the Northeast performing live "Nicki Bluhm Sings Cher". The show is both homage to the early songs in Cher's career through Nicki’s sublime interpretive lens, and an overview of Nicki’s original material, adding selections from her extensive catalogue where they connect in style and energy. Nicki is currently working on a modern take of Sonny & Cher’s 1967 hit, "The Beat Goes On" with adapted lyrics reflecting 2020, which she hopes to release this spring to kick off the tour. No examination of Cher is complete without fashion, and Nicki will interpret this as well through her style choices, inspired by Cher and long time designer Bob Mackie. Whether you are already an appreciator of Nicki's music, just becoming familiar, or are a fan of Cher, attendees of the show can expect a night of fun, music, fashion and a shared celebration of our beloved Cher.
