It is one of the most well known ballads in musical history, but when country singer Gary Morris takes it on, it turns into a different kind of special.

This particular performance of Morris singing his hit song "Wind Beneath My Wings" is from Rick Dees' late-night show Into The Night from the 1990s.

Morris' unique delivery of the first few lines a cappella sets the tone for an absolutely incredible performance. He really doesn't need any other background music because his voice is strong enough, and it's really all he needs.

The way Morris sings each note will hit you right to your core . If you start crying during this performance, we don't blame you!

"Wind Beneath My Wings" was released by Morris in 1983 off his album Why Lady Why and peaked at Number 4 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. It was named Song of the Year by both the Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music. 

It was originally written by Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley in 1982. Roger Whitaker was technically the first person to release the song commercially, but many others released it in the following ten years. The two most popular versions are Morris' and Bette Midler's 1989 version.

Watch his incredible performance below.

Lyrics Below

It must have been cold there in my shadow,
to never have sunlight on your face.
You were content to let me shine, that's your way.
You always walked a step behind.

So I was the one with all the glory,
while you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name for so long.
A beautiful smile to hide the pain.

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be.
I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Oh, and I, I could fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Oh, the wind beneath my wings.
You, you, you, you are the wind beneath my wings.
Fly, fly, fly away. You let me fly so high.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.
Oh, you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings.

Fly, fly, fly high against the sky,
so high I almost touch the sky.
Thank you, thank you,
thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings.
