"Mamma Mia!" the musical originated more than 20 years ago and has gone on to have productions around the world with generations of fans still singing and dancing to ABBA songs some 40 years after their release.

Here We Go Again has worked in the industry for decades, amassing quite an impressive fortune along the way. She said the film is "fun at a time when we need fun".

In a fresh burst of activity by the 72-year-old singer and actress, Cher said that her creative spirit was rekindled after singing one of the signature tunes on "Mamma Mia!".
