Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
Who’s that other pres sitting next to Shimon Peres? ‘I’ve never sung this before live,’ says Barbra.
Many blessings upon their heads. Amen
thank you so much for sharing. inspiring.
… and what’s he doing biting a rose?
Touche, Norman. I always love Barbra’s interpretations. Always tells a story.
The other pres is Bill , the “cigar blower”.
A far better President than the one who came after him, the war criminal who should be in jail with his VP and Secretary of State.
It’s more appropriate for the current president to be sitting in jail for the disastrous policies which are ruining our wonderful country!
So poisoned you can’t even enjoy the music…how sad
what are you talking about
Streisand, always a class act !!
There is only one Barbra and the company she keeps is exceptional! Her voice brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart.
Sylvia, all I can say is amen
Talent, style, class and heart continue to emerge from this forever young and giving woman!
Barbara is a class act and is one of our People who touch and bring tears to our hearts.
Barbara Streisand, upon the 90th anniversary of Shimon Peres.
She not only sounded great, but said something powerful with emotion and meaning,
No doubt this was real and significant and the very best.
Barbra Streisand is the voice of the century – twentieth or twenty-first, it doesn’t matter. She’s exceptional because she always tells a story, no matter how short the number. If only we had more of her kind in the opera world…
Uplifting, hopeful, inspiring, just awesome Streisand vintage.
Three of my favorite people Streisand, Clinton and Peres.
Babs still has a beautiful voice and looks great. Remember that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East. I am so proud to have the Jewish heritage.
thank God for Barbra and for her keen support of my effort to rescue Raoul Wallenberg. Keep the candle burning as we seek the return of Wallenberg’s remains for a decent hero’s burial and for his courageous and sacrifice in saving the Jews of Budapest. Morris Wolff, author of “Whatever happened to Raoul Wallenberg?”
Is it actually known where Wallenberg’s remains are? I thought the circumstances surrounding his death are still a mystery.
I love Barbara but my mother loved Judy Garland!!!
I love both Barba and Judy.
