Barbra Streisand (born April 24, 1942) is an iconic American singer, theatre and film actress, composer, and film producer and director.

She was born Barbara Joan Streisand in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York then moved to another area in Brooklyn. Her father died when she was only 15 months old, and she had a lifelong turbulent relationship with her stepfather. Her well-intentioned mother did not encourage her daughter to pursue a show business career, opining that Barbara was not attractive enough. This criticism, many speculate, led to a lifelong insecurity about her appearance, despite enormous success in every facet of show business.

She was educated at Beis Yakov School and then famed Erasmus Hall High School, where she graduated fourth in her class, and overlapped by a year future collaborator Neil Diamond.

Barbra Streisand has recorded more than 60 albums, almost all with the Columbia Records label. Her early works in the 1960s (her debut, The Second Barbra Streisand Album, The Third Album, My Name Is Barbra, etc.) are considered classic renditions of theatre and nightclub standards, including her famously ironic version of “Happy Days Are Here Again”. Beginning with My Name Is Barbra her albums were often medley-filled keepsakes of her television specials.
