Legendary singer Cher has announced that her mother, Georgia Holt, has passed away at the age of 96.
The 76 year old Cher published a brief tweet overnight that prompted many of her 4 million Twitter followers to send her condolences
‘Mom is gone,’ wrote Cher, followed by a frowning emoji.
Holt was a singer herself, and got her start singing on an Oklahoma City radio station when she was six years old, and by age 10 sang with bandleader Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
She was married and divorced 6 times and had a number of minor television and film roles in the 1950s.
She made appearances on the Mike Douglas, Merv Griffin, and Dinah Shore shows in the 1970’s.
