Bette Midler is passing on performance tips to her daughter SOPHIE, who has decided to follow in her mum's footsteps by pursuing a career in the spotlight.
The Wind Beneath My Wings hitmaker has enjoyed decades of success as both a singer and actress - and now her 23-year-old daughter, Sophie, is planning to follow suit after graduating from the prestigious Yale University.
Midler says, "My girl! She's going into show business! I sent her to a really good school, and she graduated and she went to China. She had a job in China for about six months. She came back and announced she wanted to be in show business! So I said, 'OK, here's the boas and sequins. Have a good time!'"
