Bette Midler is a singer who slowly became a star and is quickly becoming a legend.
“Success has to do with whether you have enough drive and energy and intelligence and talent to make a career
out of it,” says Midler.
Her vocal range and taste run the gamut â€” rock, pop, blues, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s. Her album “The Divine Miss M,”
Atlantic, released in November 1972, has already sold over a hundred thousand copies. She has played two
Lincoln Center concerts, toured the United States, has a second successful album and had a three-week run at the New York Palace Theatre this December.
