Beyonce to perform for Streisand

From LA Times today....

Beyoncé clearly seeks out role models and thumbs through music history the way some people browse catalogs. She carefully channeled the icy perfection of Diana Ross in "Dreamgirls" and jumped at the chance to perform with Tina Turner at February's Grammy Awards ceremony. Now comes her turn as Etta James, and, on Dec. 7, she will seek out her hero, Streisand; Beyoncé will perform "The Way We Were" at the Kennedy Center Honors and she already has butterflies.

"It's amazing. It's beautiful," she said. "When you're a little girl you don't think you'll meet these people, these giants. You get to speak to them and ask them whatever you want. It makes you stand up straight too, absolutely. I have so many things to ask her."

Barbra All Set To Record 63rd Album

Barbra will return to the recording studio on Monday to record her first studio album since Guilty Pleasures... which was released on September 20th, 2005 and subsequently went Gold within weeks of it's release. Barbra broke the news of the project to Radio listeners prior to the American elections. She will work along side Diana Krall for the first time.

It's not yet clear what Diana's role will be -- but we're pretty certain she'll be involved with the arrangements. This project will be Barbra's 63rd album. Barbra Streisand Live In Concert 2006 was her last non-studio album, which debuted at #7 in May 2007.

BarbraNews will be keeping fans updated throughout.

A New Day by Barbra Streisand.

November 5th…what a day… a new day….finally Dr. King’s words ring true that one day we will live in a nation where people “will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” After 2 stolen elections, this time, in this election over 57 million Americans made their voices heard. I am so proud of our country today…miraculously overnight we have regained the respect of the world. From England to Africa, people are celebrating Barack Obama’s victory…proof that he is the first truly global President.

Last night, Americans took this wonderful country back from the party and the leaders that have led us astray over the past eight years. So I thank each and every one of you for standing in line for hours to vote. Americans have regained their optimism and renewed their sense of hope ...and now we all look to a brighter tomorrow. Unlike most of the public, the pundits and the politicians, President-elect Barack Obama rejected the idea of an America comprised of blue states versus red states…and last night he proved to each and every one of us that we truly are the United States of America.
