Barbra Streisand on the passing of her longtime record producer and sound engineer, Phil Ramone

I’m so saddened to learn of Phil’s passing.

 We first worked together in 1967 when I did a free concert in Central Park. His brilliance at capturing sound was immediately evident.

 Later we worked together on the film “A Star Is Born” where Phil was able to record me singing live, including “Evergreen”.

 In the next decade we worked on the soundtrack to “Yentl” and many other recordings.

 Phil had impeccable musical taste, great ears and the most gentle way of bringing out the best in all the artists he worked with. The monumental recordings he produced will endure for all time.

Barbra Streisand Signs Directing Deal With Aldamisa International

Barbra Streisand has taken on a talent agency.

The legendary performer and social activist has signed with United Talent Agency, which will represent her as an actress, producer and director. She will continue to be represented by manager Marty Erlichman, who has guided her career -- including music -- for decades. Streisand has sold a whopping 71.5 million albums in the U.S. alone.

Streisand, 70, is a rare Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy winner. She most recently was onscreen opposite Seth Rogen in the comedy The Guilt Trip, her first starring film role in nearly a decade. She also performed at the Oscars on Feb. 24 in a tribute to late composer Marvin Hamlisch, her longtime friend and collaborator.
UTA also will represent Streisand's film and television production company Barwood Films.
A longtime champion of Democratic political candidates and philanthropic causes, Streisand's foundation has given millions of dollars to more than 700 nonprofit organizations, including the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai
