Idina Menzel could hold a concert where she literally just sings the phonebook and we'd still pay a lot of money for front-row tickets. She stars in the Bette Midler role in the upcoming Lifetime remake of Beaches, which airs on January 21. The wonderful Gabriella Pizzolo, who took over for Sydney Lucas in Fun Home, also stars. Watch the trailer here to hear Adele Dazeem bust out that title song. Get your box of tissues ready!
