Happy 70th Birthday Barbra Streisand!!!

It’s really amazing to think that the irreplaceable Barbra Streisand is 70 years old! 

Here’s my favorite Babs performance, singing here with Judy Garland.  What a team!
(fyi: if a commercial pops up in the beginning – click on “Skip Ad”)

And here’s a tribute to her great acting skills:

And here’s Babs singing Sondheim (“Being Alive” at end of video)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARBRA!!
