If there’s anything Bette Midler can’t do, I have yet to discover it. This woman has acted and sang her way into the hearts of millions, and she just keeps getting better as the years go by.
Here, singing a phenomenal cover of Rosemary Clooney’s White Christmas, Bette shows what makes her the star she is. In a duet with Barry Manilow, who once played piano and sang background for Bette in Manhattan’s bath houses, these legendary performers delivered a wallop. Their combined talent is amazing.
White Christmas is one of those timeless holiday classics. It’s hard to make it sound bad but it’s even harder to make it sound special. This, Bette and Barry do with ease. Watching them sing this song just makes you feel good.
