“People” Added to National Recording Registry

Barbra Streisand's signature song, "People," has been deemed worthy of preservation as part of America's heritage by the Library of Congress.

Time Magazine reports, “These recordings are among 25 new additions to the Library's National Recording Registry, which preserves an ever-expanding list of sound recordings because they are recognized to be 'culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.' The new additions bring the total number of titles on the registry to 475.”

“It is so humbling and gratifying to learn that my recording of the song 'People' by composer Jule Styne and lyricist Bob Merrill will be installed in the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress,” said Streisand in a statement. “I believe "People" touched our common desire to relate to others with love and caring, and I’ve always tried to express this in my renditions of this magical song.”

Barbra at LA Women's March

Streisand at Womens March Los Angeles

On Saturday, January 21, 2017 women and men marched peacefully in solidarity for the protection of their rights, their safety, their health, and their families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. Marches held in more than 500 U.S. cities were attended by at least 3.3 million people. This event was possibly the largest demonstration in U.S. history.

California Democrat — Rep. Maxine Waters— told CNN “The crowd itself is the message,” she said. “Wherever (Trump) is, he's looking at this, he's witnessing this and he's got to know that something is being said here today about him, that he'd better know that he can't get away with doing some of the things that he said he's going to do.”

In Los Angeles, Barbra Streisand partipated in the march. Introduced by Rufus Wainwright, Barbra appeared on stage and made a speech. Barbra also posed for several “selfies” with her fellow marchers.

Barbra's speech has been posted on her official site. Click here to read it.

It was quite a happening.

I am proud that Barbra Streisand participated and spoke. She is, first, a citizen. And you can read her thoughts on the artist as citizen here.
