Get your tissues ready. In a new trailer for the upcoming documentary Cher & The Loneliest Elephant, the iconic singer shares the emotional story of Kaavan and what moved her to help fight for his release.
The clip starts with Cher in Islamabad, Pakistan, explaining the long trek on foot necessary to reach the zoo where the elephant was kept. "I could see him from the distance," the Grammy winner begins before the footage cuts to the giant mammal, who had a thick chain wrapped around one ankle. "He was shackled. He was suffering."
She continues: "Elephants are just like we are: They are so family oriented and emotional. And so, I wanted to free him."
