Watch Idina Menzel take on Bette Midler's 'Wind Beneath My Wings'

2016-12-16

Broadway legend turned Disney princess Idina Menzel previously admitted taking on Bette Midler's role in classic '80s film Beaches could amount to 'career suicide' - but judging from her spectacular rendition of Wind Beneath My Wings, neither Idina or the film's diehard fans have anything to worry about.

The Frozen and Wicked star shared a video of her singing the iconic ballad to Twitter early this morning (December 16), proving that she's more than capable of matching Bette Midler's cast-iron pipes.

Check out the recording below:
