An artist of unparalleled accomplishments in multiple entertainment fields, Barbra Streisand has made her mark as an award winning actress of stage and screen, recording artist, concert performer, film director, producer, screenwriter, songwriter, philanthropist, designer, photographer, author and activist.
Known for her hit songs including Guilty, Woman In Love, The Way We Were, No More Tears (Enough Is Enough) and many more, Streisand is the epitome of original. She is just as famous for her hit film career, her activism and theatre stardom. As of 2019 she had won 2 Oscars, 10 Grammys (including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award), 5 Emmys, the Special Tony Award, American Film Institute Award, Kennedy Center Honors Prize, 4 Peabody Awards, the Presidential Medal Of Freedom and 9 Golden Globes.
In 1977, Streisand became the first female composer to win a best song Oscar for Evergreen from “A Star Is Born”. The iconic film was most recently remade by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, which Streisand has shown great admiration for.
Streisand has never forgotten her roots. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she struggled briefly as an actress and nightclub singer in New York during the early 60s before she shot to stardom on Broadway. She made a historic homecoming to Brooklyn in 2012 and again in 2016.
In 2018 she released Walls, her first set of original songs since 2005 and a comment on President Trump’s America. The Guardian called it, “a fearless riposte to the White House.” The Independent commented, “Streisand lets loose her still resplendent voice, enunciating each word with such fervour that you can’t help but be swept up in her righteous indignation.”
