I am Lordelliott, a Brazilian law student who began editing Wikipedia in January 2010. At the time, my edits were limited to the Portuguese-language edition of Wikipedia. As an aficionado for American singer-actress Cher, I did some serious rework on her Portuguese article, and in December 2010 it became a featured article under my nomination.

In October 2012, when Cher announced the release of her first studio album in over ten years, I decided to challenge myself and work to take her article on the English Wikipedia to featured article status. As most of the research was already done in the Portuguese Wikipedia, the main point now was to translate the content (which was immense) to English. Even though I am not a native English speaker, I've received some great help from users such as GabeMc, Wikipedian Penguin, Noleander, Snuggums, and AJona1992. Together, we turned water into wine.

By 2016, I am still working on the article, firstly because year after year I'm getting more interested in Cher's career and its overall impact on today's female pop artists, and secondly because editing the article helps me improve my English. :-)

In June 2016, Cher was recognized as a good article under my nomination. Now, my next goal is to make it a featured article.

I am a fan of music in general. Native artists I like include Os Mutantes, Novos Baianos, Secos & Molhados, Ney Matogrosso, Pato Fu, Adriana Calcanhotto, Caetano Veloso, Céu, Chico Buarque, Daniela Mercury, and Gal Costa.

As for international artists, I often listen to Madonna, Björk, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Robyn, The Beatles, and Tori Amos.

If you have concerns, requests or complaints, please do not hesitate to contact me through my talk page.
