Barbra Streisand

Streisand in 2018 Barbara Joan "Barbra" Streisand ( ; born April 24, 1942) is an American singer, actress, songwriter, producer, and director. With a career spanning over six decades, she has achieved success across multiple fields of entertainment, being among the first performers awarded an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony (EGOT) of any kind and the first performer awarded a non-competitive EGOT.

Streisand's career began in the early 1960s performing in nightclubs and Broadway theaters. Following guest appearances on various television shows, she signed to Columbia Records—retaining full artistic control in exchange for accepting lower pay, an arrangement that continued throughout her career. Her studio debut ''The Barbra Streisand Album'' (1963) won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Throughout her recording career, Streisand has topped the US ''Billboard'' 200 chart with 11 albums (the record for a woman until 2023), including ''People'' (1964), ''The Way We Were'' (1974), ''Guilty'' (1980), and ''The Broadway Album'' (1985). She also topped the US ''Billboard'' Hot 100 with five singles: "The Way We Were", "Evergreen", "You Don't Bring Me Flowers", "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)", and "Woman in Love".

Following her established recording success, Streisand ventured into film by the end of the 1960s. She starred in the critically acclaimed ''Funny Girl'' (1968), winning the Academy Award for Best Actress. Additional fame on the big screen followed with the extravagant musical ''Hello, Dolly!'' (1969), the screwball comedy ''What's Up, Doc?'' (1972), and the romantic drama ''The Way We Were'' (1973). Streisand won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for writing the love theme from ''A Star Is Born'' (1976), the first woman to be honored as a composer. With the release of ''Yentl'' (1983), Streisand became the first woman to write, produce, direct, and star in a major studio film. The film won an Oscar for Best Original Score and a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Musical. Streisand also received the Golden Globe Award for Best Director, becoming the first (and for 37 years, the only) woman to win that award. Streisand later produced and directed ''The Prince of Tides'' (1991), and ''The Mirror Has Two Faces'' (1996).

With sales exceeding 150 million records worldwide, Streisand is one of the best-selling recording artists of all time. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), she is the second-highest certified female artist in the United States, with 68.5 million certified album units. ''Billboard'' ranked Streisand as the greatest solo artist on the ''Billboard'' 200 chart and the top Adult Contemporary female artist of all time.

Her accolades span ten Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the Grammy Legend Award; nine Golden Globe Awards; five Emmy Awards; four Peabody Awards; two Academy Awards; the Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award; and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
