Streisand to Sing at Oscars

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-en...e-8472838.html

Forget the President inauguration which she has done twice, Barbra Goatsand tames the wild shrews at entertainments biggest night of the year!

Barbra Streisand will perform at the 85th annual Academy Awards for the first time in nearly four decades on 24 February.

She joins a stellar musical line-up that includes Adele performing “Skyfall” from the latest Bond movie and Norah Jones singing “Everybody Needs A Best Friend” from Ted.

Two-time Oscar-winner and three-time nominee Streisand, 70, last sang at the Oscars ceremony in 1977 performing “Evergreen” from A Star Is Born.

Details of what she will perform have not yet been released but the Academy is thought to be planning a musical tribute to films of the past decade.

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement: “In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music, how could the [Oscars] be complete without Barbra Streisand? We are honoured that she has agreed to do a very special performance on this year’s Oscars, her first time singing on the show in 36 years.”

Streisand won her first Oscar for Best Actress in Funny Girl (1968), and was nominated again in 1973 for her lead performance in The Way We Were. She was also nominated for producing the Best Picture nominee The Prince of Tides (1991), which she also directed, and for co-writing the original song “I Finally Found Someone from” The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996).

The Oscars ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre, Hollywood on Sunday 24 February presented by Seth MacFarlane.
