Soon to be seen starring alongside BILLY CRYSTAL in the domestic comedy PARENTAL GUIDANCE, iconic performer BETTE MIDLER brings to the screen the sassy presence she’s made her trademark over the years. As half of an unconventional pair of grandparents called into babysitting service, MIDLER is, as usual, a treat to watch.
A veteran of stage, screen and television, MIDLER’S music is what often brings people to the party. Countless covers of pop standards and classics have made her (and her Divine Miss M persona) an audience favorite. Given the season, we would be remiss not mentioning her COOL YULE holiday collection. A brilliant collection of classic Christmas songs that includes WHAT ARE YOU DOING NEW YEAR’S EVE?, MELE KALIKIMAKA and the titular COOL YULE. During an interview we did a couple of years ago, MIDLER talked about her appreciation for pop standards and why she enjoys them. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
