1994 (Tokyo Concert)

Shirley recorded and released this song on her 1991 CD titled, 'Keep The Music Playing'

ABOUT this song:
Wind Beneath My Wings may have originated in 1972 by a gospel group called the Mighty Clouds of Joy on their self-titled album. Evidence of this is needed. However they did record the song in 1992 on their album Catching On.

Wind Beneath My Wings was later recorded by Sheena Easton in 1982 for her Madness, Money, & Music album. It was not released as a single by her record company, although she performed it on The Tonight Show, The Merv Griffin Show, her HBO live concert special, as well as her NBC television special.

It was later made into the title of a country (later pop) song re-written by Larry Henley and Jeff Silbar.[1][2][3] The second recording was in 1982 by Roger Whittaker. It was then covered by Colleen Hewett in early 1983 with Gladys Knight doing another cover later that same year. In 1987 it was recorded by Perry Como, and two years later by Bette Midler. Knight's edition was a Top Ten country hit, and it won the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Song of the Year awards that year. Midler's was a Number One Billboard Hot 100 hit which also won her a Grammy Award in 1990. "Wind Beneath My Wings" was performed by Bette Midler for the soundtrack of the film Beaches and became a U.S. number-one single. It was named Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the Grammy Awards of 1990.

LYRICS:
It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine
You always walked a step behind
I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength
Only a face without a name
I never wants heard you complain

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle
'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings

It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I have it all here in my heart
I want you to know, I know the truth
I would be nothing with out you

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle

'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings
Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle
'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings
You are the wind beneath my wings

You are the wind beneath my wings
