Barbra Streisand, real name Barbara Streisand, is an American singer, songwriter and actress who has boasted 2 Academy Awards, 8 Grammy Awards, 5 Emmy Awards, 4 Golden Globes and more.
She is also considered one of the most prolific artists in terms of sales with 245 million titles sold worldwide.
She gave her first performance at the age of 7 and very quickly joined the school choir she attended.
She recorded her first demos at the age of 13 and sang in clubs arriving at the age of 18.
His first album "The Barbra Streisand album" was released in 1963 and won no less than 2 Grammy Awards !
It was during the 1970s that things accelerated considerably with the release of major titles like "The way we were", "Evergreen (Love theme from A star is born)", "No more tears (Enough is enough )” or “You don't bring me flowers".
At the end of this decade, she is considered the biggest female star in the US version and just behind Elvis Presley and the Beatles in terms of album sales.
But it was not until 1980 that she achieved planetary consecration when the legendary album "Guilty" was released, which notably included the enormous intergalactic tube "Woman in love".
In 1985, she did it again with the album "The broadway album" which, against all odds, given its very theatrical music content, became a huge success.
Other albums will come out later with more or less success without altering the Aura of this singer with an exceptional voice and who has deeply marked almost three decades of music.

1971 ... a decidedly exceptional year 1971 with an uninterrupted series of high caliber hits. A dynamic that is not about to stop ...
1972 ... the Carpenters version will remain forever the most famous. But this one is not bad either. The original title, composed by Jo Raposo, is actually a credits for a children's TV show called "Sesame Street". Even the Carpenters title is just an adaptation...
1973 ... a single title year but what a title ! A sumptuous ballad that shows his extreme talent in this area. And that's just the beginning...
1974 ... no need to be a diviner to know that the young Barbra is going to go far, very far. She signs here one of the most beautiful Intimist titles of the decade, if not of the end of this XXth century. MAS-TER-FUL !
1974 ... the sumptuous ballads follow one another at an impressive speed. A unique know-how that will always remain the trademark of the singer
1975 ... we continue with this magnificent Ultimate Slow. A title with extreme inspiration and which vividly demonstrates its total control over this area
1977 ... his 1st WONDER of WONDERS. A pure moment of hearing happiness ! And especially its first global mega hit. A well-deserved consecration ! SUB-LIME !
1977 ... each song is a sound event in itself. A totally extraordinary talent and an ability to provoke emotions almost unique in the world
1978 ... and it continues, and it continues, and it continues ! Mind-blowing lyric titles that follow one another in an incredible way. She literally walks on water ...
1978 ... nothing and no one can stop her. No waste, no failure, it's a veritable war machine of emotion !

A title written by...the Gibb brothers, better known as the Bee Gees, by chance. Once again SU-BLI-ME !
1981 ... again made-to-measure made in Bee Gees. When legend meets legend, we reach a level of inspiration almost unmatched in this decade !
1981 ... the 2 gifted put back the cover. Admittedly, it will not necessarily be the most exceptional of all that they will have produced but we will be content with it largely considering the level !
1981 ... once again the Gibb at the controls. A new dance track of very large caliber served on a set by tube makers
1982 ... year after year, decade after decade, each piece produced is a real delight and none is alike. Unbelievable !

1983 ... a single-title year, extremely rare for her. Anyway, one more moment when time stands still, one more !
1984 ... when Michel Legrand writes tailor-made for Barbra. Only the best can compose for the best. Logical !
