Bette Midler to be honoured

Bette Midler is to receive an honour for her musical talents

Bette Midler's voice has helped turn songs like Wind Beneath My Wings into classics, and now she'll be honoured for that gift.

The singer, comedienne and actress is set to receive the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award at the Songwriters Hall of Fame on June 14 in New York.

The organisation's chairman, Jimmy Webb, says Midler "captivated the world" with her "stylish presentation and unmistakable voice, making each song her own".

Past Sammy Cahn recipients include Dick Clark, Neil Diamond and Tony Bennett.

The Songwriters Hall of Fame is inducting Bob Seger, Gordon Lightfoot, Don Schlitz, Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones, and Jim Steinman this year.
