Written in 1982 by the songwriting team of Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley, "Wind Beneath My Wings" found its voice in 1988 as the closing ballad for the movie "Beaches." Although first envisioned as a romantic number, this classic Bette Midler tune has become a universal tribute to the inspirational power of love. It's a two-hanky number, so be prepared.
