Video: Come Little Children by Book Of Shadows

Book Of Shadows: “Come Little Children” (words by Bette Midler written for the movie Hocus Pocus) Sung by someone else and not from the movie. Its a fuller version than the movie and is set to wiccan/pagan images.
Earlier this year I was trying to find who wrote the poem (lyrics), I asked the local librarian and they looked it up to see that Bette Midler wrote the song or poem.


Come Little Children

Hollywood Legend Mitzi Gaynor On Bette Midler

“How much did you pay for these tickets?” Mitzi Gaynor asked her husband Jack Bean about their orchestra seats when they attended a Bette Midler concert at the Greek Theatre. “Whatever you paid, you didn’t pay enough.”

They were enthralled with Bette’s performance, as Mitzi was this month with Bette’s concert in Las Vegas, where whispers keep surfacing that Bette may be the honoree this spring at the Professional Dancers Society luncheon on May 16 at the Beverly Hilton. Mitzi presides over this great organization that looks after dancers in need and has honored Mary Tyler Moore, Angela Lansbury, Cyd Charisse, Donald O’Connor, Dick Van Dyke, Gene Kelly. Who isn’t aware that dancers careers are short-lived, their bodies pummeled by the fiery toll on their bones and muscles. When push comes to shove and the gigs become leaner, our blessed PDS is there to offer assistance.
