She has achieved five No. 1 singles in the US, the most for a female singer in the 1970s, and sang lead on a No. 1 hit single at least once every year from 1977 to 1980 in the US, a period of 4 consecutive years and the first female performer to achieve it. Streisand also was one of the elite acts with top 10s in four different decades. In 1974, "The Way We Were" became the first original single by a female artist to achieve the No. 1 song of the year in US

In 1964, Streisand became the first and only female artist to place three albums in the top 10 on Billboard's annual albums chart.[12] Five Barbra Streisand albums appeared on the Billboard 200 album chart on October 31, 1964, Streisand held the record for the female with the Most albums in the Top 200 simultaneously for nearly half a century, until Whitney Houston had ten albums place in the Billboard 200 chart at the same time after fans learned of her death. During March 5-19, 1977, Streisand became the first female singer to have a No. 1 album (A Star Is Born) and single (Evergreen (Love Theme from A Star Is Born)) in the same week in US.

Lessons from Barbra Streisand

November 06, 2006|By NEWSDAY, REDEYE.

Pop music is full of young divas, but currently on tour is the mother of them all, Barbra Streisand. Before Beyonce, Christina or Fergie, Babs was speaking her mind during a career that's spanned more than 40 years. Streisand is the ultimate role model for any female singer hoping to become a multimedia star. Here's a look at how today's pop stars are ripping pages from Streisand's songbook.

Be gay-friendly

Streisand: One of her first performances was at a gay West Village nightclub; her son, Jason Gould, came out as gay; and c'mon, girls, she's like BUTTAH!

Trainees: Christina Aguilera embraces her gay fans, has talked about her gay best bud in The Advocate and recorded the gay-positive song "Beautiful."

Make your name

Streisand: Barbra dropped the extra "a" early on, and recorded the albums "My Name is Barbra," "My Name is Barbra, Two," "Color Me Barbra" and "Simply Streisand." Guess she had a point to make.

Trainees: Beyonce, Pink, Rihanna, Kelis, Xtina, Britney, Madonna--everybody's doing it now.

Break into movies

Streisand: Won an Oscar for "Funny Girl" and has starred in dozens of other films, most recently 2004's "Meet the Fockers."

Trainees: Beyonce's set to break out as a serious actress in "Dreamgirls," but Britney Spears ("Crossroads"), Mariah Carey ("Glitter") and Madonna (too many to mention) have mostly disappointed.

Date your producer

Streisand: She dated the ambitious hairdresser Jon Peters, who ended up producing her film "A Star Is Born."

Trainees: Carey married her producer Tommy Mottola (as did singer Thalia, by the way); Janet Jackson dates record producer Jermaine Dupri; Madonna dated "Dick Tracy" producer Warren Beatty.

Show some skin

Streisand: In her video "Left in the Dark," Babs appears in, um, something that starts below her shoulders and ends far above her knees. She also filmed a topless scene for "The Owl and the Pussycat" but decided to kill it.

Trainees: It's hard to name a current pop singer who hasn't bared more than Barbra. Maybe there's a lesson in that too.

Oh, the drama

Streisand: She quit touring for 27 years beginning in 1967 because she suffered from stage fright. Recent drama came during her current tour--in New York, hecklers forced her to get all profane and in Florida, an irate spectator threw a drink at her.

Trainees: See Fiona Apple (onstage freakout), Mariah (breakdown), Britney (so many bad decisions).

Acoording to USATODAY "People who need Barbra Streisand are indeed lucky these days: [b]The mother of all contemporary pop divas[b] suddenly appears to be everywhere" ,her peers such as Aretha, Diana.., her younger fellow divas such as Madonna, Kylie, MJB, Whitney from Britney, Beyonce to Adele, Lady Gaga and so on all cited Barbra as their favorite artist or idol

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/ ... n-20140324 It's cover her “favorite female singers” – songs like Donna Summer’s "Last Dance" and Barbra Streisand’s "People."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_Ross ... d_Perform_"Funny_Girl"‍

Mariah:
http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/evolutio ... es/462394/

Whitney:
http://articles.latimes.com/1992-11-22/ ... -houston/5
Houston says dismissively, pointing to her early role models "Streisand, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Aretha" as "pure voices who needed no gimmick."

Madonna
http://www.thebacklot.com/happy-birthda ... k/04/2015/
Queen Madge:...We love you ,Barbra ... (Barbra appeared in 7:26) OMGGGGGGGGGGG

Celine:
As we know

Kylie

I look at people like Barbra Streisand, she did it all.
She’s someone very inspiring to me – directing your own films and starring in them is pretty admirable.

MJB
http://metro.co.uk/2013/12/09/mary-j-bl ... e-4220625/
Barbra Streisand! I remember being a fan of hers when she did her first r’n’b album with The Bee Gees, Guilty. I love her as an actress, too. She’s everything you want to be.

Britney
http://www.madonnarama.com/posts-en/201 ... hort-news/
"I love Barbra Streisand. I think she is very theatrical and I love the way she speaks to people through her music."

Beyonce

articles.latimes.com/2008/nov/13/entertainment/et-beyonce13 articles.latimes.com/2008/nov/13/entertainment/et-beyonce13

Lady Gaga http://www.cbsnews.com/news/a-tale-of-3-divas/
http://www.madonnarama.com/posts-en/201 ... my-sister/

Anderson Cooper: I think I’ve seen Barbra Streisand do it and I think Madonna might have done it on “60 Minutes”-interview.
Lady Gaga: Ok there… well you just named two of my sisters. If you told me that Madonna didn’t, I would have called her and said “I know you did”.

And one of biggest diva fan
Cyndi:
I remember when I first met him and he told me Barbra Streisand actually sang to him and I was jealous on so many levels. Like 1, I never even met Barbra and she sang to him and I used to sing with her so much when I was little and she didn't even know.
http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/ ... reddit-ama

If you don't necessarily peg Lauper as a Broadway fan, you'd be wrong. She grew up listening to musicals. One of her favorite albums is Barbra Streisand's "Funny Girl."
"Barbra does not know how she and I sang together. That's how I learned how to sing.

Off course, Barbra is also one of most underrated Fashion icon and sex symbol,

1977, Streisand become the first woman celebrity to be on the cover of [[Playboy]] whowas interviewed inside.
http://s44.photobucket.com/user/tomasp2 ... 3.jpg.html

In 2011, [[Jennifer Aniston]] paid tribute to Streisand in a series of poses that recreated some of Streisand's classic looks on the cover of [[Harper's Bazaar]].
http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-n ... bra-240675

In 2013, [[Victoria Beckham]] revealed that Streisand was her own style icon. "She is the epitome of chic. She looked magnificent. She wears lots of [[Donna Karan]], and she had on this fabulous Donna Karan dress that just draped perfectly. She had this gorgeous hair. She was just beautiful. I love her."
http://www.elleuk.com/fashion/celebrity ... style-icon

In celebrating Streisand's 72nd birthday in 2014, [[Marie Claire]] wrote, "She is an icon in every sense of the world. The Brooklyn-born triple threat went from a NYC cabaret singer to Broadway star overnight and went on to conquer the silver screen, pop charts, and every stage she set foot on. She also established herself as a fashion icon thanks to her fearless sense of style".

I don’t mind a bit of Babs but I find her too contrived. All I know is I don’t want her - in any shape or form - to play Madam Rose in her pet project remake of Gypsy. I’ve never liked how she never went back to Broadway and did another musical.

I'm a fan of the music, but I've never really dug that deep as far as her acting goes - I don't usually like the acting side of big singers.

Actually I was listening to her live version of Pure Imagination earlier (it’s just been released to Spotify). She still has that pristine vocal. You honestly can’t fault her.

I only really know Funny Girl, which was her big break and she was brilliant in it. I really want to see Hello Dolly as I’ve just discovered Bette Midler’s album of the musical, and really want to see the story that goes with it. But I’m a big fan of the musical Gypsy, and she’s 30 years too old for the lead part.

But as a Madonna fan, I usually avoid movies from those who also release music as experience hasn’t been kind :lol:

Netflix Special to Air in November
According to a Netflix page and schedule that was published this weekend on their site, Barbra Streisand's concert special will begin streaming November 22nd.
The concert was filmed back in December at Miami's American Airlines Arena. Documentary cameras followed Barbra during her 4-city tour to Houton, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale and, finally, Miami. The special should be an exciting combination of live concert footage and documentary scenes. At the Miami show, Barbra also included Patrick Wilson and Jamie Foxx for duets.
Netflix describes the special as "dazzling ballads, Broadway standards and stories from behind the scenes."
Netflix has not published a press release, nor a trailer for the special yet — but we can only assume those are due to hit the internet very soon. Also, no word on when the special will begin streaming in Europe. Wait for the official release for all the info.
