Idina Menzel and Nia Long Are Powerful In “Beaches” Remake
All I can say is "WOW". I cried my eyes out watching the new version of the classic movie "Beaches" with Idina Menzel and Nia Long. Menzel says this Lifetime project had the blessing of the legendary Bette Midler and this new version delivered in a powerful way.
Menzel's reprise of the signature song "Wind Beneath My Wings" is extraordinary. Her voice is that of an angel. Give it a listen:
But for me, the performance that stole the show was Menzel's performance of "Last Time". She sings this powerful anthem while thinking about her friend Hillary (Nia Long) when they have become disconnected. This is vocal genius at its best. Get tissues while you think about that one person you need to call.
If you loved the original movie, you will love this one just as much.
