Bette Midler Covers TLC’s “Waterfalls” For ‘It’s The Girls’: Listen
After blessing us with her cute take on The Ronettes‘ “Be My Baby,” legendary songstress Bette Midler is back again this week with another selection — and arguably one of the most anticipated! — from her upcoming girl group-inspired covers album, It’s The Girls: TLC‘s “Waterfalls.”
The seasoned vet switches up the classic R&B production of TLC’s original for her take on the track, turning the song into a much more sorrowful, contemplative slow tune complimented by gentle piano melodies and subtle strings — even some light bongo action. It’s a soulful rendition, fit perfectly for The Divine Miss M’s vocals. Listen to Bette’s take on the track up top.
