‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ co-writer Marc Shaiman is so pleased about the revelation. He is Bette Midler’s friend, and a long-term collaborator as well.
Marc Shaiman posted on Facebook:
As a child of the 60s, I grew up obsessed with the Mary Poppins soundtrack, learning everything about songwriting and film scoring from it.
As a teenager in the 70s, I became obsessed with new star Bette Midler, who fate amazingly led me to, resulting in our 40 year relationship.
Could I have ever imagined that one day Bette Midler would sing a song I co-wrote with Scott Wittman for a sequel to “Mary Poppins” at the Academy Awards?! My heart is exploding!!!
