Barbra Streisand on Hillary Clinton's Victory: 'It's About Time!'

After Hillary Clinton declared victory against Bernie Sanders in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday night (June 7), artists from Lady Gaga to Katy Perry cheered the historic achievement.

Now Barbra Streisand, one of the most famous and passionate Democrats in the entertainment realm, has weighed in on the fact that for the first time in American history, a woman is running for president under the banner of a major political party.

"I feel a tremendous rush of pride because this is a woman who is more than qualified to be president," Streisand said in a statement. "Isn't it interesting how a barrier seems insurmountable -- until it comes down? I hope girls across the country are thinking, 'That could be me.' And like I said after the first woman got a best director Academy Award, it's about time!"

Streisand will release Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, later in 2016. The new album features the music/film/stage/philanthropy legend singing duets of Broadway songs with movie stars.

Barbra Streisand: Love Letter to the LGBTQ Community
The first time I ever sang for a paying audience was at a gay club, The Lion, in Greenwich Village. I was 18 years old and had never been in a nightclub before. The gay community supported me from the start, and I will always be grateful.

Decades later, I remember sitting in a theater and watching Larry Kramer’s play, The Normal Heart, with tears running down my cheeks. It was 1985 and Ronald Reagan was president and it was heartbreaking to know people were dying while he refused to even say the word AIDS. I wanted more people to see this powerful story about everyone’s right to love, so I tried for 25 years to get it made as a movie. No one would touch it, but thank God times have changed.

Marriage equality is the law and that deserves a toast... to all of us, because we’re all unique and beautiful in our own way and entitled to love and be loved by whomever we choose.

Barbra Streisand's 'Magic' Tour Surpasses $50 Million Earned

After the diva added two dates to the tour, its total gross hit $53 million. The trek played to more than 200,000 fans.

Barbra Streisand’s The Music… The Mem’ries… The Magic Tour wrapped with a total gross of $53 million, following two final performances during May in the New York metropolitan area. The tour initially concluded last December with $46 million earned from a fall trek through North American cities, but in February, Streisand announced two further May dates.

The final two-show stint added $6.8 million in revenue to the overall tour counts, bumping it over the $50 million mark based on box office totals reported by the arenas. The gross from the two sold out concerts earns her the top slot on Billboard’s weekly slate of Hot Tours (see list below).
Streisand kicked off the final run on May 4 at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island, one of the concerts offered during the arena’s first month of operation following a 20-month renovation. The performance drew 11,435 fans and earned $3.1 million. It marked her first performance at a Long Island venue in more than 50 years.

She returned to Brooklyn, her hometown, for the tour finale on May 6 at Barclays Center. With an attendance count of 14,464 and a $3.6 million take, it was her third show at the arena during this tour. She performed two shows there last August during the trek’s opening stretch. Overall box office counts at Barclays total $12.4 million with 43,714 tickets sold for all three concerts.

In total, The Music… The Mem’ries… The Magic Tour sold 203,423 tickets at 16 shows in 14 North American cities. She launched the trek in support of her last album, the Billboard 200 No. 1 Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.

Since 2000, Streisand’s tours have surpassed more than a quarter-billion dollars in sales from 64 performances worldwide. Spanning four continents, her shows have been attended by more than 930,000 fans.

Barbra is a touring beast to be honest. If she wanted too, she could have a $200M tour quite easily if she did just 50+ dates.

Probably. I never paid as much for a ticket as the time I went to see Barbra.

3. Barbra Streisand. One of Hillary's most passionate celeb supporters, and likely to fall under the same unfair "New York elite" boo-hiss branding should she attempt to appeal to Middle America. Still, nobody who's sold as many records as Barbra -- 68.5 million in the U.S. alone, according to the RIAA, making her the best-selling female artist in American history -- ever did so while appealing to the coastal U.S. alone, and if 2017 politics is all about force of personality, there aren't a lot of people from a
