One of the world’s best-loved and most versatile entertainers, Bette Midler has garnered accolades in all quarters of show business. She’s earned four Grammy Awards including Song of the Year (1989: “Wind Beneath My Wings”; 1990: “From A Distance”) and Record of the Year (1989: “Wind Beneath My Wings”); two Academy Award nominations, three Emmy Awards, one Tony Award, three Golden Globe Awards, and nine American Comedy Awards. Her SRO tours have placed historically in the Top 5 grossing concerts in a calendar year. Ms. Midler has sold more than 14 million albums over the course of her career and holds 25 gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications from the RIAA for her albums and singles including her most recent gold album, Bette Midler Sings The Rosemary Clooney Songbook . Equally famous off the stage for her humanitarian work, Bette has just celebrated ten years restoring parks in New York City with her New York Restoration Project which she founded and continues to lead with vision and unbridled enthusiasm. Her annual Hulaween Gala is truly one of the hottest tickets in town. The Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria is transformed into a spectacular island fantasy. For her 2005 Tenth Anniversary Hulaween Gala which also celebrated her 60th Birthday, Elton John performed and Sting and Trudie Styler were honored for their environmental work. Hundreds of friends of The Divine Miss M including Mariah Carey, Martha Stewart, John McEnroe, Yoko Ono, Glenn Close, Eartha Kitt, Marlo Thomas and Jayni and Chevy Chase showed up to celebrate in their best costumes!
