Otherwise known as Bette Midler, she made a name for herself in the early 1970s at New York's Continental Baths, a club for gay men. Since then she's been nominated for two Academy Awards and earned Emmy and Grammy awards. She has a new CD, Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook. It's produced by, and features duets with, Barry Manilow.
