Barbra Streisand Biography - Movie Starlet and Pop Princess
Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1942, Barbara, as she was then known, first cut her teeth in the showbiz world as a nightclub
singer in her teens. Quickly building her profile, she secured roles in Off-Off-Broadway shows, at one point appearing alongside
a pre-fame Joan Rivers. After achieving TV exposure, she released a string of medley-style albums in the 1960s before putting
out more conventional material in the '70s. Achieving success with chart-topping singles 'The Way We Were' and 'Evergreen',
she was also cultivating a growing Hollywood career in movies such as Hello, Dolly! and What's Up, Doc?. Managing
to balance working between disciplines, by the 1980s she was slowing her acting work significantly and instead heading behind
the camera with her own production company. This also allowed her to focus on music, helping her break the record for most
top ten albums from a female artist - 32 over the past 50 years.
Having sold more than 70 million records and enjoying the distinction of being one of the few performers to have won Grammy,
Emmy, Oscar and Tony awards, she remains one of the planet's favourite entertainers. Don't miss her next visit to the UK -
