"And Ron Meyer - who was my agent, who's the head of Universal - he called me up and said, 'You're doing Mamma Mia!' and hung up", she said.
According to The Richest, Cher's net worth is approximately $305 million. And then, just as it feels like all is lost, Meryl reappears, sharing a duet with her daughter from beyond the grave, which will make you cry and cry and you won't stop until the credits roll and you finally get what you paid to see: Cher singing WITH Meryl Streep. Here We Go Again and be on-screen for the first time in over seven years.
Christine Baranski, Judy Craymer, Cher, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Alexa Davies, Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried and Lily James attending the premiere of Mamma Mia! We haven't even gotten to Cher yet, who arrives like a benevolent rock deity and turns the last 20 minutes of the film into a personal concert. As revealed in early teasers and on the film's soundtrack, she sings the 1976 hit, "Fernando", with actor Andy Garcia and joins her castmates for an ensemble version of 1980's "Super Trouper".
Making an impression as her dark locks tumbled around her shoulders, the singer smoldered as she sported rosy-make up and fluttery eyelashes.
For the sequel, Cher depicts the mother of Donna, played again by Meryl Streep, as she figures out how to act like a grandmother.

"I think he has the same kind of issues that I would have if we were hanging out with his ex-girlfriend from long ago", Seyfried told The Mirror.
Lily James will play young Donna. "I was really nervous but all was great, and you [Amanda Seyfried] were adorable", Cher exclaimed.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again lays all of its Abba love on us with platform heels, tongue-in-cheek humour and joy-infused musical performances choreographed to perfection by Anthony Van Laast.
