Cher overwhelmingly voted top female choice for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction next [Poll Results]

Musical star and actress Cher is having an incredible year! She co-starred in the hit summer film “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.” She has her life story on Broadway in November (and if she wins a Tony, she joins the coveted EGOT club). She will receive the Kennedy Center Honors in December. And she just overwhelmingly won our Rock and Roll Hall of Fame poll about which female artist should be inducted next.
