Grab a tissue: Idina Menzel sings 'Wind Beneath My Wings' in new 'Beaches' trailer

Lifetime has released a trailer for "Beaches," giving viewers their first extended look at the upcoming TV remake starring Idina Menzel and Nia Long. Of course, the trailer is set to Menzel's rendition of the tear-jerker "Wind Beneath My Wings." 

Like the original, the new "Beaches" follows the lifelong friendship of aspiring performer C.C. Bloom (Menzel) and wealthy heiress Hillary Whitney (Long). Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey originated those respective roles in the 1988 film. 

"Beaches" will air on Jan. 21, giving you plenty of time to stock up on tissues.
