ballad version of 'Believe' for Cher at the Kennedy Center Honors and
brought her to tears,” PrideSource's Chris Azzopardi said.

been around; it’s so undeniable, and to sing for her, what a treat.
And it was such an honor.”

was in high school and when I finally got my first car during my
senior year – I was driving the family car forever – that CD had
just come out and I remember listening to it really loudly on the

that, that memory came flooding back to me.”
