Your Morning Cry: Bette Midler Serenades Dying Fan


Please just duct tape a handkerchief to your face, and then listen to this phone call between Bette Midler and superfan Anna Greenberg, who is dying in the hospital with cancer.

The conversation is hard enough to listen to, but when Midler fulfills Anna’s dream by singing “Wind Beneath My Wings” to her, it’s pretty much impossible not to cry all the tears while simultaneously hugging everyone you love, shaking your fist at cancer, and then crying some more.

Greenberg died shortly after this video was filmed. She was 29 years old.
