Breaking News! The divine Miss Bette Midler is among the 2021 Kennedy Center Honorees

So excited to see that Bette Midler will be a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors later this year. It’s a much-deserved award to go along with her three Emmys, three Grammys, and two Tonys. A two-time Oscar nominee, she has never won an Academy Award.

Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein said: “America’s Divine Miss M, Bette Midler has enjoyed an unrivaled and prolific career, entertaining millions with her wondrous voice and trademark comedic wit.”

Bette has triumphed in films (The Rose, For The Boys, Beaches), on Broadway (Hello, Dolly! Fiddler on the Roof, I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers), on television (Gypsy, Diva Las Vegas, The Showgirl Must Go On), and in music (Wind Between My Wings, From a Distance, The Rose).

The rest of the 44th class of Kennedy Center honorees are Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, Motown founder Berry Gordy,, singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, and operatic bass-baritone Justino Díaz.

    This show is always a highlight for me. It is even more so now that I’m older and some of my lifetime favorites are being honored. I don’t know Justino Diaz, but I’m really very happy about the other four well-deserved honorees (I’m happy for Justino Diaz too).
