OMG, Beaches Is Getting A Remake With Idina Menzel — She's Even Re-Recording THIS Classic Theme Song!

no title

Idina Menzel has played some iconic characters over the years, but who would have guessed her next big role would be on Lifetime?

According to Deadline, the Frozen actress is set to star in a Lifetime remake of the 1988 film Beaches!

Taking the role of CC, played by Bette Midler in the original Garry Marshall classic, the 45-year-old will also take on the film's iconic songs Wind Beneath My Wings and The Glory of Love!

But that's not all — Menzel will also record additional songs for the contemporary remake, which is set for a 2017 premiere!

Beaches tells the story of two young girls, CC and Hillary, who share an unexpected and lifelong friendship.

Menzel's CC is an aspiring singer trying to make it in El Lay when she is discovered by a big time director.

The yet-to-be-cast Hillary, played by Barbara Hershey in the original version, is the daughter of a civil rights lawyer who searches to find her own destiny.

Not too many actresses can do justice to a character already played by Midler, but we think Idina is perfect for this role!

Are YOU excited for Lifetime's remake of Beaches?

Bette Midler Sings Wind Beneath My Wings To Sick Fan! Aww!!

Filed under: InspirationSad SadBette Midler

Warning: Get your tissues ready!

Bette Midler has always been about providing inspiration to many, but her music and spirit especially hit home for one very sick girl.

28-year-old Anna Greenberg, who was a mega-fan of Bette, died last month after battling a rare form of cancer.

Days before Anna's passing, Mizz Midler called the girl in the hospital and sang Wind Beneath My Wings, which was one of Anna's last requests.

In the video, Bette professed:

Bette Midler & Barry Manilow's Blood Feud RUINING The Tony Awards!?

bette-midler-barry-manilow-feud-tony-awards-showdown-copacabana

What?! Noooooo!

Producers behind the 2013 Tony Awards are considering asking the beautifully brilliant Bette Midler to co-host the show with the ah-mazingly iconic Barry Manilow, but there is a huge hitch!

And we don't mean the match-maker played by Will Smith!

The two legendary entertainers apparently HATE each other!

See, Barry started out as Bette's piano man, but the Mandy singer quickly escaped his humble beginnings and — with 80 million album sales beneath his belt — eventually outsold his former boss!

Bette didn't waste away by the wayside, but she apparently holds a grudge!

The Wind Beneath My Wings songstress wouldn't even attend his Manilow on Broadway opening!

Aww! We love Bette & Barry more than we love oxygen and chocolate milk, but the Tonys are bigger than these two stage legends!

We will not have them sullied!

Get it together, you two! The world is counting on you!

The show must go on!

540-Lb. X Factor Contestant Makes A Pact With Simon Cowell! Watch His Amazing Audition HERE!

Wow, this is by far, one of THE most inspirational auditions we’ve ever seen on a reality show!

When 41-year-old, 540 lb. Freddie Combs was wheeled onstage during X Factor auditions last night, no one knew what they were about to experience.

However, as soon as the retired Tennessee minister — who, at 920 lbs. in 2009, almost died — opened his mouth to sing, it was like HEAVEN!

Check out the audition you MUST see for yourself (above)!!!

TEARS!! CHILLS!! What an absolutely phenomenal voice… it’s a shame that it has gone unheard for this long!

We LOVE the deal Simon made with him, too! We too are standing by your side, Freddie, AND believe in you!
