He was one of the most recognizable stars of the '60s, a pop icon who found success in music and TV. But when "flower power" faded, he forged an unlikely new career in politics. Sonny Bono first came to the public's attention as the chart-topping songwriter of the hit "Needles and Pins." But the diminutive performer was never content just to be an entertainer, and he transformed his celebrity into a respected political career.
BIOGRAPHY® follows Bono from his childhood to his tragic death in a skiing accident near Lake Tahoe. Clips capture his heyday in the late '60s, when Sonny and Cher were one of the most famous acts in America, with a hit TV show and a string of hits like "I Got You, Babe" and "The Beat Goes On." See how he entered politics as the Mayor of Palm Springs, and came to Washington as a Gingrich Republican in 1994. And interviews with friends, family and colleagues offer an intimate portrait of a man whose life was cut short by tragedy.
