Midler Learns To Play Ukulele

Published on December 17, 2008 with No Comments

Singer Bette Midler has embraced her Hawaiian roots and learned to play the ukulele for her Las Vegas show.

The superstar treats fans to a rendition of the traditional islands instrument during performances at Caesar’s Palace, where she has been performing nightly.

And she reveals it has fulfilled a lifelong ambition – because she could never afford her own ukulele when growing up in Honolulu.

Midler said: “I always admired it. I used to see the kids orchestras… the men and women who used to sing Hawaiian music and I was so envious of them. But you know, I was poor, and I didn’t have the money for a ukulele. I picked it up and I’ve been playing it for a little less than a year.”
