Iconic singer Cher has been announced as the entertainment for the upcoming amfAR annual gala, set to take place on May 23 at the Cannes Film Festival. amfAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, was founded in 1985 with Elizabeth Taylor as its founding national chairperson. The first amfAR gala was hosted at Cannes in 1993, and since then, the event has raised an impressive 4 million for HIV/AIDS research programs.

Cher expressed her excitement for the event, stating, “I have such wonderful memories of being invited to host one of the first amfAR events in Cannes by my friend Elizabeth Taylor. I am extremely proud to be returning for this event’s 30th anniversary, and to continue to support the incredible work of this organization. It will be a very special evening.”

In 2015, Cher was honored with amfAR’s Award of Inspiration at the gala. CEO Kevin Robert Frost praised Cher for her longstanding support, stating, “Cher has been a steadfast supporter of amfAR and people living with HIV/AIDS since the early days of the epidemic and we could not be more proud to have her with us once again for what promises to be an unforgettable evening.”

The upcoming gala is expected to be a memorable and impactful event, with Cher’s performance adding to the significance of the occasion.
