In this heartbreakingly sweet video, Bette Midler makes a special phone call to superfan Anna Greenberg, who is dying in the hospital with cancer. Midler thanks Greenberg for her support and praises her for her courage. "You're such an angel," Midler tells Greenberg in the tearful exchange. "Such a wonderful soul."

After some conversation with Anna and her family, Bette Midler fulfills Anna's dream, and sings her iconic "Wind Beneath My Wings."

Greenberg died shortly after this video was filmed. She was 29 years old.
