Cher to Voice a Rock Diva on Animated Series 'Home: Adventures With Tip & Oh' (Exclusive)
Cher is getting animated.
The iconic singer is voicing a role on the animated series Home: Adventures With Tip & Oh, Netflix's adaptation of the feature film that hails from DreamWorks Animation TV. She will also sing on the episode.
Cher will play a new character, Chercophonie, the biggest rock diva in Boovsland. Chercophonie is an innovative, avant-garde GirlBoy Boov known for her dissonant music and outrageous fashion sense. She's elusive and mysterious and so enormously popular that the only way she can go out in public is in disguise.
In the episode, Tip becomes a Boov rock star due to her awful guitar playing and a little mentorship from Boovland's biggest rock Diva, Chercophonie. But when Tip’s playing begins to improve, she risks losing her fans who hate her "new" sound. With help from Oh, Tip learns that fame is meaningless if your heart isn't "in" what you're being celebrated for.
Meanwhile, Chercophonie harbors a personal secret that no one knows (not yet, anyway): Becoming an intergalactic rock star was her fallback plan — her true desire is a mysterious talent that is brought back to life when Chercophonie is inspired by Tip.
Home: Adventures With Tip & Oh, now in its third season, stars Rachel Crow as Tip and Mark Whitten as Oh, the roles voiced by Rihanna and Jim Parsons, respectively, in the 2015 film.
Cher, who won an Oscar in 1988 for Moonstruck, also was nominated in 1984 for Silkwood. Her last acting credit was voicing the role of Janet the Lioness in 2011's Zookeeper. Other credits include Mermaids, Burlesque and Mask.
Cher also recently performed at the Billboard Music Awards, where she received the Icon Award.
