Legendary Singer Barbra Streisand Performs on NET Television

LINCOLN, Neb. (Nov. 11, 2013) -- Legendary singer Barbra Streisand is joined by trumpeter Chris Botti, Il Volo, and her son Jason Gould for an evening of entertaining hits, including nine songs she has never performed on a concert stage, when “Barbra Streisand: Back to Brooklyn” airs Friday, Nov. 29, at 8 p.m. CT on NET1.

Mixing her trademark classics with rarer older material and selections from her more recent albums, Streisand, in her first concert appearance in six years, and backed by a 60-piece orchestra, keeps a capacity house at Brooklyn’s 19,000-seat Barclays Center enthralled.

During the historic homecoming performance -- the singer’s first Brooklyn concert since her childhood years -- the songs are framed by multi-faceted video montages of Streisand’s childhood and early career. In all, Streisand sings 27 songs, nine of which she never before performed live

Throughout the concert, she sings selections from every stage of her career, including “Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered” (which she sang during her memorable appearance on “The Judy Garland Show” in 1963); “Enough is Enough (No More Tears)” (her disco hit with the late Donna Summer); “My Funny Valentine” (from her 1967 album “Simply Streisand”); and “The Way We Were” (in loving tribute to Marvin Hamlisch who unexpectedly passed away in August 2012).

The performance also includes songs from her more recent albums like “Nice ‘N’ Easy,” “That Face,” “Some Other Time” and “Here’s to Life.”
