9/11 Tribute: Bette Midler “Wind Beneath My Wings”

Bette Midler sings in tribute to those lost in 9/11

Music is always my “go-to” for emotional release. So it’s no wonder each year I revisit this clip of Bette Midler singing ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ at a memorial at Yankee Stadium shortly after the horrific bombings on 9/11.

This encapsulates so much of what we felt then and still feel today.

Her “thank you” at the 4:30 mark says so much on behalf of so many.

As only Bette could deliver…

Also – my fellow LGBTQ blogger, Joe Jervis, shares his personal account of what it was like to be in New York City on that day. Well worth the read.
