Salvatore Phillip Bono, dit Sonny Bono, (né le 16 février 1935 à Detroit, Michigan - mort le 5 janvier 1998 à South Lake Tahoe, Californie, des suites d'un accident de ski) était un chanteur, acteur et homme politique américain.

Il abandonne des études de médecine pour entrer en 1957 chez Specialty en tant qu'auteur, producteur, attaché de presse et chanteur. Il enregistre plusieurs titres sous le nom de Don Christy, puis de Ronny Sommers. Puis il entre au service de Phil Spector comme homme à tout faire. Il écrit avec Jack Nitzsche le titre Needles And Pins qui sera enregistré par Jackie DeShannon et The Searchers.

Chanteur et mari de la chanteuse Cher dans les années 1960 (formant le duo Sonny & Cher), il se fait connaître par des tubes tels que I Got You Babe ou The Beat Goes On. En parallèle, il dirige la carrière solo de Cher. Le couple anime aussi une émission télévisée dans les années 1970 puis se sépare en 1975.

Sonny devient alors acteur dans les années 1980 ainsi que scientologue, il essaie ensuite d'ouvrir un restaurant, et c'est face à la rigidité de l'administration qu'il décide d'entrer en politique avec succès puisqu'il est élu maire de Palm Springs.

Rattaché au Parti républicain, il est élu en 1994 à la Chambre des représentants. Il le reste jusqu'à sa mort en 1998 d'un accident de ski. À titre posthume et suite à la forte implication de lui-même, puis de sa veuve Mary Bono, la Loi américaine d'extension du terme des droits d'auteur est aussi appelée Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act.

Cher, avec qui il était resté ami, chante The Beat Goes On à ses funérailles.
