Bette Midler
Born December 1, 1945 in Patterson, NJ, and raised in Hawaii
Bette Midler showed an early interest in singing and acting. By the '60s she had moved to New York and found a role in the Broadway hit Fiddler on the Roof. Bette developed a nightclub act that included singing and comedy, including show tunes, pop hits, and even a takeoff of The Andrews Sisters.

She appeared with increasing frequency in New York with her accompanist, Barry Manilow. She signed to Atlantic Records and released 'The Divine Miss M' (1972), which went gold and included the Top Ten single cover of The Andrews Sisters' "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy."

In 1979 she starred in the film The Rose, a fictional account of the life of Janis Joplin. The title track became a Top Ten hit.

1980 saw the release of Bette Midler's concert film, 'Divine Madness', and her best-selling book, A View from a Broad. Her next film, Jinxed (1982), however, was a flop, and subsequent records didn't fare well.

Bette Midler made a cinematic comeback with Down and Out in Beverly Hills (1986), but it wasn't until 1989 that she had another pop hit, when her version of "Wind Beneath My Wings" from her film Beaches became a number one hit. Her singing career was rejuvenated, and in 1990 "Some People's Lives", became a Top Ten, million-selling album, with the song "From a Distance" hitting number two. Bette's soundtrack album to her 1991 film 'For the Boys' was also a gold-selling hit. The album Bathhouse Betty followed in 1998.

Taking a bleak look at the downside of the music industry, "The Rose" chronicles the precipitous fall of a fictional rock and roll diva. Pulled down by raging alcoholism and drug addiction, Rose's career deteriorates to the point of complete self destruction. Includes several raw, emotionally plangent song performances by Bette Midler, who does a real star turn here in her first leading role.
