Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin — Willie Nelson

Barbra hasn't won a Grammy for her recording work since 1987 (The Broadway Album) !! It seems like she is majorly overdue for this honor.

D.C. Streisand Concert

Streisand fans in Washington, D.C. .... The American Pops Orchestra presents “Don’t Rain on My Parade: 75 Years of Streisand” on January 13, 2017 at 8 PM at Lisner Auditorium. Fran Drescher (The Nanny) will host.

Legendary artist and ten-time Grammy winner Barbra Streisand marks her 75th birthday in 2017. Celebrating this iconic star and songs from Broadway to Pop and everything in between, this program demonstrates why the music of Barbra Streisand remains a centerpiece of the American Songbook and why, much like a milestone birthday and the artist herself, her music deserves great celebration. With a parade of special Broadway guests, including Amber Iman, Lindsay Mendez, Laura Osnes, and more!
