“Because of her singing they all went away feeling moved, feeling comforted, feeling, perhaps, the slightest tremors of faith.”-Ann Patchett, American Writer
Yes, there is only one Barbra Streisand….that voice…that personality….a multitude of talent and a Brooklyn gal! Happy Birthday, Barbra!
Barbra Streisand has never been one to ever back down on her beliefs: “I am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators. They fought slavery, fought for women to have the right to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals put an end to child labor and they gave us the five day work week! What’s to be ashamed of?”
I know I proposed a few weeks ago that this is Wise Wednesday, I suggest you put on some Barbra Streisand and let the magic begin. Music reaches the depths of our souls, our emotions and stirs up memories, good, bad, so-so…music makes us FEEL!! So, FEEL my friends as you listen to Barbra sing:
