Barbra Streisand to sing at Oscars

Two-time Academy Award winner Barbra Streisand, who has only sung at the Oscars once before, will perform during the upcoming Oscar telecast on February 24. Streisand last sang “Evergreen” from A Star Is Born on the March 28, 1977 show, which won the Best Original Song Oscar that night. “In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music,” said producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, “how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand? We are honored 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).
