TLC’s ‘Waterfalls’ Covered by Bette Midler
TLC's classic song 'Waterfalls' receives the cover treatment from a living legend. Singer Bette Midler takes on the trio's 1995 chart-topping hit 'Waterfalls.'
In her version, Bette slows down the cautionary track and adds live instrumentation. The cut is from the 68-year-old's tribute album, 'It's The Girls!,' which finds the songstress covering tracks by famous girl groups like the Supremes and the Chiffons.
"A long time ago I fell in love with voices in harmony,” Midler said in a press release to the Advocate. “In particular, the sound of female voices singing together. There were so many great girl groups in those days, I still listen as avidly as I ever did. This record is a small attempt to honor them for all the joy they brought to me and the world.”
'It's The Girls! is out Nov. 4.
