Germantown, Wisconsin (PRWEB) August 11, 2012
Barbara Joan Streisand was born on April 24, 1942 in Brooklyn, New York. When she was just 15 months old, her father died suddenly and tragically from a cerebral hemorrhage. His death devastated the family both emotionally and financially. Streisand's interest in music began early, and she was a member of the chorus at Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn.
When Barbara was 18, she dropped an A in the spelling of her name to be unique. From that point on, she was known as Barbra. Barbra began performing at nightclubs in her area when she was just a teenager.
Streisand made her Broadway debut in 1962. She played the character of Miss Marmelstein in the musical "I Can Get It for You Wholesale." Even though the role was small, it would make Streisand a star. In 1964, Streisand took on the role of Fanny Brice in "Funny Girl" on Broadway. The play found tremendous success, and Streisand's popularity increased even further.
Although Streisand found great success in musicals, she is most well-known for her singing career. Amazingly, she has released 50 studio albums during her career. Her albums cover a range of genres from pop tunes to classic Broadway songs. Streisand has received eight Grammy Awards for her efforts.
