The 68-year-old Grammy winner sang "Wind Beneath My Wings" after the Oscars' "In Memoriam" tribute to all the actors and actresses who passed away this year, including James Gandolfini, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Walker, Shirley Temple, and Harold Ramis.

The two-time Oscar-nominated singer and actress revealed last week
she would be making a cameo appearance during the live telecast, but didn’t announce what song she'd be singing.
Many Twitter users and fans speculated that Midler would opt for her 1982 tearjerker.
Others featured in the "In Memoriam" tribute were Peter O'Toole, Annette Funicello, Sid Caesar, Roger Ebert, Joan Fontaine, Juanita Moore, Eleanor Parker, Julie Harris, and Maximilian Schell.
Midler's performance starts at the 3:50 mark.
