Streisand to perform at Oscars ceremony for just second time


Actor, singer and director Barbra Streisand may be a familiar figure at Hollywood’s Oscars, but she has only sung on the annual awards show once.

Streisand will perform again at the Academy Awards on February 24th, producers have said, without details about how she would fit into the show or what she might sing.

Streisand (70) has won two Oscars, one for best actress in Funny Girl and another for best original song, Evergreen from her 1976 film, A Star Is Born. Her performance of that song at the 1977 Oscars show was her only previous onstage stint at Hollywood’s biggest night.

Streisand has also been nominated for several Oscars, including for best actress in The Way We Were and as producer for best picture nominee The Prince of Tides. – (Reuters)
