This is free piano sheet music for Cher, Believe provided by www.sheetdownload.com. "Believe" is a song by American singer-actress Cher from her twenty-second album of the same name. It was first released on October 19, 1998 as the lead single from the album by Warner Bros.. It was written by Brian Higgins, Stuart McLennen, Paul Barry, Steven Torch, Matthew Gray, and Timothy Powell and produced by Mark Taylor and Brian Rawling. The song also appears on the greatest hits compilations The Greatest Hits (1999) and The Very Best of Cher (2003)."Believe" is an upbeat dance-pop song that features Eurodance and house influences within its composition as well as several sound effects such as synthesizers and Auto-Tune. Lyrically, the song is about the personal empowerment and self-sufficiency after a painful break-up. Critically, "Believe" received praise from reviewers, being acclaimed for its club-friendly sound and Cher's vocal performance, with some critics calling it a catchy song, and listed it as one of the singer's musical highlights; they also noted the way in which Cher was able to re-invent herself and remain fresh and contemporary amidst the more teen pop-based music of the period. Some critical commentary has dismissed the piece for its high amount of Auto-tune. It won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording at the 42nd Grammy Awards and also received a nomination for Record of the Year. Commercially, the song remains one of the best-selling singles of all time, having sold 11 million copies worldwide, topping the charts in over 20 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States; the latter in which she still holds the record for the oldest solo female act to have a number 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, at the age of 52. It became the world's best-selling single of 1998 and 1999 and the highest-selling single by a female artist of all time in the United Kingdom.The music video for "Believe", directed by Nigel Dick, showed Cher in a nightclub performing the song in two different sequences: one in which she is seen performing the song on stage and the other as a supernatural being locked in a cage. Cher has performed the song in every one of her tours and in several TV shows around the globe.
