Cher sings new version of “The Golden Girls” theme for NBC’s upcoming Betty White tribute
Cher is contributing her unparalleled vocals as a tribute to America’s late Golden Girl, Betty White.
According to People, the “Believe” singer, 75, shared a fabulous clip to her social media on Friday, in which she sang an all-new cover of the iconic theme song to 1980s sitcom The Golden Girls that starred White along with Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty and Rue McClanahan.
Cher, the report adds, gave the special performance of “Thank You For Being a Friend” on the original Golden Girls Stage 5 in Hollywood, where the long-running NBC series was taped.
“Thank You For Being a Friend,” originally written and recorded in 1978 by Andrew Gold, was later covered by Cynthia Fee. That was the version used on the Emmy-winning series which ran from 1985 until 1992.
