Cher accepted the 2024 iHeartRadio Icon Award.

Before the Burlesque actress was bestowed with the honor, Meryl Streep gave a heartfelt speech about being a huge fan of Cher and reflected on their memories working together. "You know that Cher has had a number one record in each of the last seven decades?" the Oscar winner gushed to the audience.

Jennifer Hudson sang the Moonstruck star's hit "If I Could Turn Back Time" and joined the "Dark Lady" artist to perform her smash hit "Believe" before giving her the big award.

"Oh Meryl and Jennifer, I want to thank you," Cher gushed while taking center stage. "Before I start, there are people probably someplace that have said, 'Doesn't she own more than one pair of pants?' I've had these pants for 40 years."

"First of all, I feel really blessed and lucky with this award," she continued. "I feel lucky to have people who have stayed with me for all these years. A lot of people have. When I was young, there was nothing about me that yelled Cher, so it was about having a dream. I got this dream at 5 years old. I went to see Dumbo, and I asked if I could be him, and she said, 'No that's a character.'"

"I want to tell you this — I have been down and out so many times that you cannot believe it — dropped by so many record companies and couldn't get a job. I went to Las Vegas, they call it the elephant's graveyard. I had a show and they said 'She's so over.' I never gave up my dream. standing on this stage, I love standing on this stage. This is kind of my dream. I stand there, the music plays and out of my body comes this voice and people seem to like it," the Oscar winner told the crowd.

The Silkwood actress then gave a piece of sage advice. "Have a dream and then don't give it up no matter what happens."
