Barbra Streisand

Icons of the Century

She took the supper clubs and cabarets of Gotham by storm, then unleashed her amazing pipes on Broadway. Streisand used her saucy sexuality to comic acclaim and won an Oscar in 1969 for “Funny Girl” (she tied with Katharine Hepburn, another icon and iconoclast).

More Grammys, hit movies (“What’s Up, Doc?” “The Way We Were,” “The Prince of Tides” among many) and awards came along as the Jewish girl from Brooklyn followed her muse and became one of the most glamorous and powerful women in showbiz.

She produced, directed, and used her voice on the political campaign trail.

Streisand dared to keep her nose in a vanilla world, and was rewarded for it.
