The Bette Midler Blog
awesome awesome triple awesome! what a rarity, and an honor too!
Thank you for finally getting this on YouTube! I’ve been trying to figure out how to get it off of C-SPAN for years with no luck. This is one of her finest performances, imo. I talk about it often as “a tender love song between a woman and her country.”
I agree! I have never heard the song sung like that before…it seemed so personal yet it reflected the mood of the country at that time as well! xx
