'Mamma Mia 2' star Cher to release album of ABBA covers

Cher lead

Meryll Streep attends the world premiere of Mamma Mia!

Her impact on Hollywood is clear, whether through her Sonny and Cher show, her work on the silver screen in movies like Mask, Moonstruck, Mermaids, and Burlesque, her Vegas residency, or the 25 studio albums she dropped.

LONDON (Reuters) - Amid olive trees and plenty of ABBA tunes, the musical world of "Mamma Mia" took over a London theater on Monday for the film sequel's world premiere with Oscar victor Meryl Streep and pop diva Cher among the attendees.

As she reunites with her fathers, Sophie asks them how they met her mother.

This aligns perfectly with what other stars have said about a particularly emotional moment in the movie with Streep in that exact setting.

Cooper, who has also appeared in Agent Carter and The History Boys, dated Seyfried for two-and-a-half years after filming Mamma Mia! in 2008.

Fresh off of her appearance in Mamma Mia!

She revealed: "After I did Fernando, I thought it would really be fun to do an album of ABBA songs... so I did!" Cher went on to say that the songs won't be what fans expect, as she has covered them in a different way.

"I watched Mamma Mia over and over again to channel the essence of what makes Donna so unique and brilliant and fearless and courageous", the actress explained, admitting she tried to "mimic" some of Streep's "physicality", including her hand gestures.

Cher also joins the cast, playing the mother of Streep's character Donna Sheridan, while James plays a younger version of Donna.

There's no word on when the record might be ready for release, but you can hear Cher and Andy Garcia sing "Fernando" from Mama Mia! below. "I've never been on a movie that had less tension".
