Bette Midler to be honored by Songwriters Hall
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Bette Midler’s voice has helped make songs like “Wind Beneath My Wings” classics, and now she’ll be honored for that gift.
Midler is set to receive the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award at the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 14 in New York. The organization’s chairman, Jimmy Webb, says Midler “captivated the world” with her “stylish presentation and unmistakable voice, making each song her own.”
Past Sammy Cahn honorees include Dick Clark, Neil Diamond and Tony Bennett.
The Songwriters Hall of Fame is inducting Bob Seger, Gordon Lightfoot, Don Schlitz, Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones, and Jim Steinman this year.
