Barbra Streisand (pronEng|ˈstraɪsænd "STRY-sand"; born April 24, 1942) is an American singer, film and theatre actress. She has also achieved some note as a composer, political activist, film producer and director. She has won Academy Awards for Best Actress and Best Original Song as well as multiple Emmy Awards, Grammy Awards, and Golden Globe Awards.

She is one of the most commercially and critically successful female entertainers in modern entertainment history and one of the best selling solo recording artists in the US, with RIAA-certified shipments of over 71 million albums. She is the highest ranking female artist on the Recording Industry Association of America's (RIAA) Top Selling Artists list. [ [http://www.riaa.com/goldandplatinumdata.php?table=tblTopArt "Gold and Platinum Top Selling Artists"] . RIAA.com.] She has sold approximately 148 million albums worldwide.Fact|date=July 2008

Streisand is a member of the short list of entertainers with the distinction of having won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award. She has been named a Kennedy Center Honoree for 2008.

Early years

Barbara Joan Streisand was born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Her father, Emanuel Streisand, a grammar school teacher who emigrated from Vienna, Austria, died while working as a Jewish summer camp counselor in upstate New York when she was 15 months old. Starting at age seven she had a turbulent relationship with her stepfather, Louis Kind. She has a half-sister from her mother's second marriage, Roslyn Kind, who also became a singer, performing on "Saturday Night Live" in 1976. [ [http://www.aumag.org/features/RozKindApril06.html Untitled Document ] ]

Streisand's mother, Diana, an American-born school secretary [http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~battle/celeb/streisand.htm "Barbra Streisand genealogy. Rootsweb.com.] , discouraged her daughter from pursuing a show business career, opining that she was not attractive enough, and encouraged her to learn to type. Streisand attended Erasmus Hall High School [Boyer, David. [http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F04EED8143AF932A25750C0A9679C8B63 "NEIGHBORHOOD REPORT: FLATBUSH; Grads Hail Erasmus as It Enters a Fourth Century"] , "The New York Times", March 11, 2001. Accessed December 1, 2007.] , where she graduated third in her class in 1959, and where she sang in the school choir with Neil Diamond. She was also friendly there with future World Chess Champion Bobby Fischer.

Early singing, theater, and television career

After a music competition, Streisand became a nightclub singer while in her teens. She originally wanted to be an actress and appeared in summer stock and in a number of Off-Off-Broadway productions, including one with then-aspiring actress Joan Rivers, but when her boyfriend Barry Dennen helped her create a club act — first performed in a gay bar in Manhattan's Greenwich Village in 1960 — she achieved success as a singer. In 1961 Streisand appeared at the Town and Country nightclub in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but her appearance was cut short; audiences did not understand her revolutionary singing style. [ [http://www.barbra-archives.com/Performances/streisand_towncountry.html >> Barbra Streisand Archives | Town N Country Supper Club, 1961, Winnipeg, Canada ] ] It was at this time that she shortened her first name to Barbra to make it more distinctive.Fact|date=December 2007

A kinescope exists of Streisand's first television appearance, which was on "The Tonight Show" in 1961 during the era when Jack Paar hosted it. The kinescope, which has circulated on YouTube, exists because in 1961 Streisand's older brother bought it from NBC. Orson Bean, who substituted for Paar that night, had seen the singer perform at a gay bar and booked her for the telecast. Later in 1961, Streisand became a semi-regular on "P.M. East P.M. West", a talk/variety series hosted by Mike Wallace. His co-host, Joyce Davidson, was best known for a recent stint as a CBC Television talk host. Westinghouse Broadcasting, which aired "P.M. East P.M. West" in a select few cities (Boston, New York, Baltimore, Washington, DC, Cleveland, Chicago and San Francisco), wiped all the videotapes, which means that no moving image exists of Streisand on the show. [ [http://www.barbra-archives.com/TV/earlytv.html "P.M. East P.M. West" in the Streisand archives] ] Audio segments from some episodes are part of her compilation CD "Just for the Record", which went platinum in 1991. The singer said on "60 Minutes" in 1991 that thirty years earlier Mike Wallace had been "mean" to her on "P.M. East P.M. West". He countered that she had been "self-absorbed." "60 Minutes" included the audio of Streisand saying to him in 1961, "I like the fact that you are provoking. But don't provoke "me"." [ [http://www.barbra-archives.com/TV/earlytv2.html Audio clip of Streisand saying this to Mike Wallace in 1961. "60 Minutes" segment is available for viewing at The Paley Center for Media.] ]

In 1962, after several appearances on "P.M. East P.M. West", Streisand first appeared on Broadway, in the small but star-making role of Miss Marmelstein in the musical "I Can Get It for You Wholesale". She also signed her first recording contract that year with Columbia Records.Fact|date=December 2007 She appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1962, and this brought her to the attention of fellow guest Liberace, who featured her in his acts in Las Vegas, Nevada.Fact|date=February 2008

In July 1963, Streisand first performed with Liberace at the Riviera (hotel and casino) in Las Vegas.Fact|date=February 2008 On September 9, 1963, she appeared as the opening act for him at Harrah's Lake Tahoe South Shore Room. She was touted as "the nation's newest singing sensation . . . who comes to Tahoe from a record-smashing engagement at Hollywood's Cocoanut Grove."Fact|date=May 2008 (This club was actually located inside The Ambassador Hotel near downtown Los Angeles.)

Her first album, "The Barbra Streisand Album", won two Grammy Awards in 1963. Her recording success continued, and at one time her first three albums appeared simultaneously on Billboard's pop albums Top Ten — an unusual feat considering it was at a time when rock and roll and The Beatles dominated the charts.Fact|date=December 2007

Following her success in "I Can Get It for You Wholesale", Streisand made several appearances on "The Tonight Show" when it was hosted by Johnny Carson. Portions of their conversations in 1962 and 1963 survive in audio. When they first sat down together in 1962, they covered topics ranging from her En Pierre dresses that she bought wholesale to her "crazy" reputation at Erasmus Hall High School to her desire to sing at the Metropolitan Opera and travel around the world. [ [http://www.barbra-archives.com/TV/streisand_tonight_show.html >> Barbra Streisand Archives | Johnny Carson Tonight Show 1962-1963 ] ] NBC wiped all the videotapes as it did with most "Tonight" broadcasts in the 1950s and 1960s.

Streisand returned to Broadway in 1964 with an acclaimed performance as entertainer Fanny Brice in "Funny Girl" at the Winter Garden Theatre. The show introduced two of her signature songs, "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade". The play's overnight success resulted in her becoming one of the youngest women ever to grace the cover of "Time". Although she continued to sing on television shows, she evidently decided during this period not to sit down with Johnny Carson again and to stop adlibbing with other talk hosts in the United States. In 1966, she repeated her success with "Funny Girl" in London's West End at the Prince of Wales Theatre.

One notable American TV special was a documentation of Streisand's 1967 free concert in New York's Central Park, at which she sang to a crowd of some 135,000 people.Fact|date=December 2007 She resumed giving American television interviews in 1976 when she sat down with Barbara Walters.

inging career

Streisand has recorded more than 60 albums, almost all with the Columbia Records label. Her early works in the 1960s (her debut, "The Second Barbra Streisand Album", "The Third Album", "My Name Is Barbra", etc.) are considered classic renditions of theater and cabaret standards, including her slow version of the normally uptempo "Happy Days Are Here Again". She performed this in a duet on "The Judy Garland Show". Garland referred to her on the air as one of the last great belters. They also sang "There's No Business Like Show Business (song)" with Ethel Merman joining them.

Beginning with "My Name Is Barbra", her early albums were often medley-filled keepsakes of her television specials. Starting in 1969, she began attempting more contemporary material, but like many talented singers of the day, she found herself out of her element with rock. Her vocal talents prevailed, and she gained newfound success with the pop and ballad-oriented Richard Perry-produced album "Stoney End" in 1971. The title track, written by Laura Nyro, was a major hit for Streisand.

During the 1970s, she was also highly prominent on the pop charts, with Top 10 recordings such as "The Way We Were" (US No. 1), "Evergreen" (US No. 1), "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" (with Donna Summer) (US No. 1), "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" (with Neil Diamond) (US No. 1) and "The Main Event" (US No. 3), some of which came from soundtrack recordings of her films.

As the 1970s ended, Streisand was named the most successful female singer in the U.S. - only Elvis Presley and The Beatles had sold more albums. [ [http://www.riaa.com/news/newsletter/press1999/111099.asp "Recording Industry Association of America: Newsletter 1999"] . RIAA.com.] In 1982, "New York Times" music critic Stephen Holden wrote that Streisand was "the most influential mainstream American pop singer since Frank Sinatra."Fact|date=December 2007. In 1980, she released her best-selling effort to date, the Barry Gibb-produced "Guilty". The album contained the hits "Woman In Love" (which spent several weeks atop the pop charts in the Fall of 1980), "Guilty" and "What Kind of Fool".

After years of largely ignoring Broadway and traditional pop music in favor of more contemporary material, Streisand finally returned to her musical-theater roots with 1985's "The Broadway Album", which was unexpectedly successful, holding the coveted #1 Billboard position for three straight weeks, and being certified quadruple Platinum. The album featured tunes by Rodgers & Hammerstein, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern and, most notably, Stephen Sondheim - who was even persuaded to rework some of his songs especially for this recording. The Broadway Album was met with nearly universal acclaim including a nomination for Album of the Year and, ultimately, handed Streisand her eighth Grammy as Best Female Vocalist. After releasing the live album "One Voice" in 1986, Streisand was set to take another musical journey along the Great White Way in 1988. She recorded several cuts for the album under the direction of Rupert Holmes, including "On My Own" (from "Les Misérables"), a medley of "How Are Things in Glocca Morra?" and "Heather on the Hill" (from "Finian's Rainbow" and "Brigadoon", respectively), "All I Ask of You" (from "Phantom of the Opera"), "Warm All Over" (from "The Most Happy Fella") and an unusual solo version of "Make Our Garden Grow" (from "Candide"). Streisand was not happy with the direction of the project and it was ultimately scrapped. Only "Warm All Over" and a reworked, Lite FM-friendly version of "All I Ask of You" were ever released - the latter appearing on Streisand's 1988 effort, "Till I Loved You."

The beginning of the 1990s found Streisand focusing on her directorial efforts and largely inactive in the recording studio. In 1991, a four-disc box set, "Just for the Record", was released. A compilation spanning Streisand's entire career to date, it featured over 70 tracks of live performances, greatest hits, rarities and previously-unreleased material.

The following year, Streisand's concert fundraising events helped propel former President Bill Clinton into the spotlight and into office. [ [http://www.barbra-archives.com/MagazineArchives/streisand_george.html Reprint of article in "George Magazine". November, 1996] ] Streisand later introduced Clinton at his inauguration in 1993. Streisand's music career, however, was largely on hold. A 1992 appearance at an APLA benefit as well as the aforementioned inaugural performance hinted that Streisand was becoming more receptive to the idea of a live performances. A tour was suggested, though Streisand would not immediately commit to it, citing her her well-known stage fright as well as security concerns. During this time, Streisand finally returned to the recording studio and released "Back to Broadway" in June 1993. The album was not as universally lauded as its predecessor, but it did debut at #1 on the pop charts (a rare feat for an artist of Streisand's age, especially given that it relegated Janet Jackson's "Janet" to the #2 spot). One of the album's highlights was a medley of "I Have A Love / One Hand, One Heart" a duet with the legendary Johnny Mathis, whom Streisand said is one of her favorite singers.

In September 1993, Streisand made global news, announcing her first public concert appearances in 27 years. What began as a two-night New Year's event at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas eventually led to a multi-city tour in the Summer of 1994. Tickets to the tour were sold out in under one hour. Streisand also appeared on the covers of major magazines in anticipation of what "Time magazine" named "The Music Event of the Century". The tour was one of the biggest all-media merchandise parlays in history. Ticket prices ranged from US$50 to US$1,500 - making Streisand the highest paid concert performer in history. "Barbra Streisand: The Concert" went on to be the top grossing concert of the year, earned five Emmy Awards and the Peabody Award, and the taped broadcast on HBO is, to date, the highest rated concert special in HBO's 30 year history.

Following the tour's conclusion, Streisand once again kept a low profile musically, instead focusing her efforts on her acting and directing duties as well as her burgeoning romance with actor James Brolin. In 1997, Streisand finally returned to the recording studio, releasing "Higher Ground" - a collection of songs of a loosely-inspirational nature which also featured a duet with Celine Dion. The album received generally favorable reviews and, remarkably, once again debuted at #1 on the pop charts.

Following her marriage to Brolin in 1998, Streisand recorded an album of love songs entitled "A Love Like Ours" the following year. Reviews were mixed, with many critics carping about the somewhat syrupy sentiments and overly-lush arrangements; however, it did produce a modest hit for Streisand in the country-tinged "If You Ever Leave Me", a duet with Vince Gill.

On New Year's Eve 1999, Streisand returned to the concert stage, giving the highest grossing single concert in Las Vegas history to date. At the end of the millennium, she was the number one female singer in the U.S., with at least two #1 albums in each decade since she began performing. A 2-disc live album of the concert entitled "" was released in 2000. Streisand performed versions of the "Timeless" concert in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia in early 2000.

Streisand's most recent albums have been "Christmas Memories" (2001), a somewhat somber collection of holiday songs (which felt entirely - albeit unintentionally - appropriate in the early post-9/11 days), and "The Movie Album" (2003), featuring famous movie themes and backed by a large symphony orchestra. "Guilty Pleasures" (called "Guilty Too" in the UK), a collaboration with Barry Gibb and a sequel to their previous "Guilty", was released worldwide in 2005.

In February 2006, Streisand recorded the song "Smile" alongside Tony Bennett at Streisand's Malibu home. The song is included on Tony Bennett's 80th Birthday Album, "Duets". In September 2006, the pair filmed a live performance of the song for a special directed by Rob Marshall entitled "Tony Bennett: An American Classic". The special aired on NBC Television November 21, 2006, and was released on DVD the same day. Streisand's duet with Bennett opens the special.

In advance of four concerts (two each in Los Angeles and New York) in September 2000, Streisand announced she was retiring from future paying public concerts. Her performance of the song "People" was broadcast on the Internet via America Online.

In 2006, Streisand came out of retirement and announced her intent to tour again, in an effort to raise money and awareness for multiple issues. After four days of rehearsal at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, New Jersey, the tour began on October 4 at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia and concluded at Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 20, 2006. Special guests Il Divo were interwoven throughout the show. On stage closing night, Streisand hinted that six more concerts may follow on foreign soil. The show was known as "".

On October 9, 2006, Streisand performed a concert at the Madison Square Garden, featuring a skit that made fun of President George W. Bush. When one heckler continued to yell repeated taunts during and long after the skit had ended, Streisand responded by shouting "Shut the fuck up!" She later apologized, but added that "The artist's role is to disturb." [ [http://edition.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Music/10/10/music.barbrastreisand.ap/ "Streisand to heckler: 'Shut the @#&% up' "] . CNN.com. 2006.] Ultimately, Streisand endured negative reaction to the sketch at only two out of her twenty concert dates. It was thought that an audience member in Fort Lauderdale threw liquid from a cup at her because of the skit, but the incident was found to be non-political. [ [http://music.msn.com/music/article.aspx?news=239899&GT1=7702 MSN Music News"] .]

Streisand's 20-concert tour set record box office numbers. At the age of 64, well past the prime of most performers, she grossed US$92,457,062 and set house gross records in 14 of the 16 arenas played on the tour. She set the third place record for her October 9, 2006 show at Madison Square Garden, the first and second place records of which are held by her two shows in September 2000. She set the second place record at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with her December 31, 1999 show being the house record and the highest grossing concert of all time. This led many people to openly criticize Streisand for price gouging, as many tickets sold for upwards of US$1,000.

A collection of performances culled from different stops on this tour, "Live in Concert 2006", debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200, making it Streisand's 29th Top 10 album. [Bronson, Fred. [http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/chart_beat/chat_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003587796 "Chart Beat Chat"] . Billboard.com 18 May 2007.] In the summer of 2007, Streisand gave concerts for the first time in continental Europe. The first concert took place in Zürich (June 18), then Vienna (June 22), Paris (June 26), Berlin (June 30), Stockholm (July 4, cancelled), Manchester (July 10) and Celbridge, near Dublin (July 14), followed by three concerts in London (July 18, 22 and 25), the only European city where Streisand had performed before 2007. Tickets for the London dates cost between GB£100.00 and GB£1,500.00 and for the Ireland date between 118.00 and €500.00. The tour included a 58 piece orchestra.

In February 2008, Forbes Magazine listed Streisand as the #2 top-earning female musician, between June 2006 and June 2007, with earnings of about US$60 million. [http://www.forbes.com/media/2008/01/28/music-madonna-hollywood-biz-cz_dp_0129musicwomen_slide_3.html?thisSpeed=15000] Although Streisand's range has changed with time and her voice has become deeper over the years, her vocal prowess has remained remarkably secure for a singer whose career has endured for nearly half a century.

Her first film was a reprise of her Broadway hit, Funny Girl (1968), an artistic and commercial success, for which she won the 1968 Academy Award for Best Actress, sharing it with Katharine Hepburn ("The Lion in Winter"), the first time there was a tie in this Oscar category. Her next two movies were also based on musicals, Jerry Herman's "Hello, Dolly!" (1969) and Alan Jay Lerner's and Burton Lane's "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever" (1970), while her fourth film was based on the Broadway play "The Owl and the Pussycat (film)" (1970).

She also starred in the original screwball comedies, including"What's Up, Doc?" (1972), with Ryan O'Neal, and "For Pete's Sake" (1974), and the drama "The Way We Were" (1973) with Robert Redford.Her second Academy Award was for Best Original Song as composer of the song "Evergreen", from "A Star Is Born" (1976); this was the first time a woman had received this award.

Along with Paul Newman and Sidney Poitier, Streisand formed First Artists Production Company in 1969 so the actors could secure properties and develop movie projects for themselves. Streisand's initial outing with First Artists was the personal "Up the Sandbox" (1972).

In 1970, she had a topless scene in "The Owl and the Pussycat". She regretted the move and requested that director Herbert Ross delete the scene from the movie. Years later, High Society magazine obtained the original negative from the film, which included the topless scene. When they published the photos of her bare breasts, Streisand took action to remove the magazine from the stands.Fact|date=December 2007 "The Owl and the Pussycat" is also notable for being the first Hollywood film in which a major Hollywood star (Streisand) uttered the word "fuck."Fact|date=December 2007

From a period beginning in 1969 and ending in 1980, Streisand appeared in the annual motion picture exhibitors poll of Top 10 Box Office attractions a total of 10 times, often as the only woman on the list. But after the disappointment of "All Night Long" in 1981, Streisand's film output decreased considerably. She has only acted in five films since.

Streisand produced a number of her own films, setting up Barwood Films in 1972. For "Yentl" (1983), she was producer, director, writer, and star, an experience she repeated for "The Prince of Tides" (1991). Steven Spielberg called "Yentl" a masterpiece, and both won critical acclaim. There was controversy when "Yentl" received five Academy Award nominations but none for the major categories of Best Picture, Actress, or Director. [ [http://www.filmsite.org/aa83.html "1983 Academy Awards Winners and History"] . Filmsite.com.] "Prince of Tides" received even more nominations, including Best Picture, but the director was not nominated.

In 2004, Streisand made a return to film acting, after an eight-year hiatus, in the comedy "Meet the Fockers" (a sequel to "Meet the Parents"), playing opposite Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, Blythe Danner and Robert De Niro.

Streisand has made only 17 films in her 40 year movie career, this however hasn't stopped her accumulative worldwide box office total being over 1.3 billion U.S. Dollars.Fact|date=January 2008

She is currently working on a film based on Simon Mawer's "Mendel's Dwarf", having pruchased the option from Uzo, who had it shortly after the novel's publication.

Politics

Streisand has long been an active supporter of the Democratic Party and many of their causes, such as raising awareness for global warming, gun control, and speaking up against the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Lawsuit

Streisand sued Kenneth Adelman, an aerial photographer who displayed a photo of her Malibu, California home along with other photos of the entire California coastline on the website of the California Coastal Records Project. Her suit was dismissed under the anti-SLAPP provisions of California law. "Streisand v. Adelman Et al, in California Superior Court; Case SC077257".
