Bette Midler Sings 'The Rose' Like Only She Can

On December 1st, Bette Midler will turn 71 years old.

And yet, when you look at her today, she looks as ageless as she did in her hit movie, 'The Rose' in 1979.

Her movie about a self-destructive female rock star struggling to meet the demands of her career was nominated for 4 Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Midler herself.

The title song from that movie is such a classic now, but no one sings it as flawlessly as Bette.

Here is a live performance from back in the day. It will bring you extreme goosebumps.


And as a bonus, here's Bette Midler singing 'The Rose' with Wynonna Judd. So powerful!
