On October 22, 2023 at the Grande Ole Opry in Nashville Tennessee, singer/producer/star of THE BEAT GOES ON, Lisa McClowry walked away with Tribute Artist of the Year honors from the Josie Music Awards (the world’s largest international independent artists awards ceremony) for her portrayal of CHER in this theatrical extravaganza celebrating six decades in the life and career of the Goddess of Pop.
One of the iconic divas of the 20th century, who parlayed her music stardom into success on movie screens and TV, CHER is a living legend. Having sold 100 million records to date, she is one of the world's best-selling music artists. Her achievements include a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award, an Academy Award, three Golden Globe Awards, a Cannes Film Festival Award, the Billboard Icon Award, and awards from the Kennedy Center Honors and the Council of Fashion Designers of America. She is the only artist to date to have a number-one single on a Billboard chart in six consecutive decades, from the 1960s to the 2010s.
CHER is, in short, incomparable. And now, she is uncannily and perfectly captured in a Broadway-style live stage show called “The Beat Goes On” by Legends in Concert artist/singer/actress Lisa McClowry. It's no surprise that Lisa was named Tribute Artist of the Year. Why? Because she has EVERY aspect of playing CHER down pat: the singing and speaking voice, the walk, the talk, the Bob Mackie-styled costumes, the makeup, the mannerisms. Nothing is overlooked. Lisa’s show incorporates dynamic dialogue, humor, seriously fun audience participation, 8 costume changes, video projection with amazing visuals and animations. You can expect to hear Cher’s hits spanning from the 60’s to now including: I Got You Babe, Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, I Found Someone, The Way of Love, Dark Lady, If I Could Turn Back Time, songs from ABBA -- Cher’s Dancing Queen album, Woman’s World, Welcome to Burlesque, Believe and so much more! Performed to a live band or tracks, the show is like having the real CHER strut her stuff on your stage.
Lisa, who in real life looks nothing at all like Cher, making her transformation all the more astounding, is a singer and entertainer with over 30 years in the entertainment industry as a trusted talent with 25 music albums, multiple lead roles in theatrical productions, movies, commercials. Her original music can be heard on the radio today.
The Beat Goes On starring Lisa as Cher is the perfect Multi-Generational Girls Night Out event for any venue. As Randy Convoy, the SVP/GM of Caesar’s Entertainment Corporation, said after seeing Lisa as Cher: “A Home Run! Highly Recommended!”

As the producer and lead singer/actress of “The Beat Goes On” Cher show celebrating the extraordinary life and music of CHER, I am proud to portray a woman who empowers other women. Like CHER who brilliantly played the real lives of strong women in movies Silkwood and Mask, I am blessed with the opportunity to portray the real life of CHER-the singing voice, the look, the walk, the talk, a living breathing powerful and vulnerable human being. Who can forget Cher’s performance in the critically hailed drama Silkwood where she portrays the real life of activist Dusty Ellis aka Dolly Pelliker. Brilliant! She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. In the motion picture Mask, Cher portrays the real life of Rusty Dennis, the mother of a boy with a facial deformity. She won the Cannes Film Festival Award as Best Actress. She deserved an Oscar as well. I remember watching and reading interviews where CHER talked about the preparation and research it took to play the roles of these woman. She described the work as important to her and an intense responsibility to be good. She was so proud and understandably so. So thank you,Cher, for your outstanding career and for empowering woman to take chances, let go, and say exactly what is on their minds. You lead by example. As a female producer, singer and actress in the business and for “The Beat Goes On” Cher show, playing Cher has brought my inner strength out to the surface. Playing her larger than life qualities while keeping it real with vulnerability. I hope to meet her someday.
