Biography

(1963 – present)

Barbra Streisand (born Barbara Joan Streisand; April 24, 1942 Brooklyn, New York), is an Academy Award-winning American singer, theater and film actress, composer, film producer, and director. She has won Oscars for Best Actress and Best Original Song as well as multiple Emmy Awards, Grammy Awards, Golden Globe Awards and an honorary Tony Award. She received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor on December 7, 2008. She is the most successful female recording artist according to the Recording Industry Assoc. of America (RIAA).

Barbra Streisand has recorded more than 60 albums, almost all with Columbia Records. Her early works in the 1960s (her debut The Barbra Streisand Album which won two Grammy Awards in 1963, followed by The Second Barbra Streisand Album, The Third Album, My Name Is Barbra, etc.) are considered classic renditions of theater and nightclub standards, including her version of Happy Days Are Here Again. Beginning with My Name Is Barbra, her albums were often medley-filled keepsakes of her television specials.

Starting in 1969, Streisand tackled contemporary songwriters; like many talented singers of the day, she found herself a fish out of water in attempts to tackle rock, but 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 big hit for Streisand.

    Para quem se interessa por vendagens, dei-me o direito de investigar um pouco sobre o Partners e levei muitos socos: o álbum em 6 semanas vendeu 830 mil cópias! Em um comparativo meio "jazz", Cheek to Cheek do Tony e da Gaga, vendeu 470 mil cópias em 5 semanas. Partners ficou se não me engano 2 semanas como álbum mais vendido do mundo. E outra comparação no mesmo naipe, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics vendeu 33 mil cópias em sua semana de estreia, enquanto Partners, 281 mil cópias. E há quem diga que a Barbra está morta... mortíssima.

    @halo_dm2 Well, the only thing that's really missing in Partners is a female duet. I mean, come on, Babs! Besides that, I don't think she could've done it any better or different, considering her voice wouldn't allow it anyway.

    I did not like "Partners", it sounds fine, of course but there's something missing. I am a huge Barbra's fan, especially her 60's albums and I was happy when she went back to her roots in "Love is the Answer".
