Music: Tribute to Barbra Streisand

Music: Tribute to Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand was/is one of the best, most talented, female vocalists of the 20th century.

These music videos (below) are of songs from The Broadway Album (released in late 1985).  On this memorable album, Barbra sang many songs from various Broadway musicals.

ENJOY!!!  Loved this album the first time I heard it (in early 1986).  Is there any thing stronger than love?!

Note:  The only problem with a couple of these videos is the volume is a little too low to do justice to these musical gems.

The combined Broadway songs Pretty Women and The Ladies who Lunch, as only Barbra can sing them!

Somewhere (with great video)

Being Alive (an uplifting song to cheer you up, could use a little more volume)

  1. Larry, Babs is undoubtedly one of the best belters of all time. It is ironic with that that huge voice, she has terminal stage fright. It is also sad that she is so far left wing that she is even left of Barry O.

    What I am wondering is why you did not feature the duet video with Jackie Evancho and Babs doing Somewhere. Jackie Evancho in case you did not not know it is an eleven year old girl with a HUGE voice and holds her own with Babs in the duet. If you have not seen it you must immediately check it out. Jackie Evancho is a savant opera singer with huge pipes and a platinum selling performer already out with her second album

  2. She got second place in last year’s America Has Got Talent competition and was robbed. Simply punch in Jackie Evancho into Google and you will bring up all kinds of videos including her appearing on all the major tv shows. She sings like an angel and is jaw droppingly talented, so much so that peoples jaws were on the floor. In particular download the Streisand duet with her and then her duet in the finals with a famous woman opera singer where Jackie was actually better than the professional
