Lifetime released the trailer for their much anticipated remake of the 1989 tearjerker Beaches, and it is a doozy.
The remake stars Idina Menzel in the role of aspiring singer CC (originally played by Better Midler) with Nia Long playing the supportive best friend character, Hilary.
The remake will air on Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. It chronicles the pair’s 30-year friendship and, of course, will feature Menzel’s updated cover of “Wind Beneath My Wings.” Bette Midler had one of the biggest hits of her career with the song, which hit No. 1 in 1989 and scooped up Record and Song of the Year at the 1990 Grammy Awards.
