Barbra Streisand

While Streisand hasn’t appeared on the Tony Awards since 1970, Broadway has never left her. Streisand next releases “ENCORE: Movie Partners Sing Broadway,” her third and long-awaited Broadway album, later in 2016. Streisand’s “The Broadway Album” and “Back to Broadway” released in 1985 and 1993, respectfully, both went multi-platinum.

 Streisand’s appearance at the Tony Awards precedes the legendary recording artist’s nine-city August North American concert tour: THE MUSIC…THE MEM’RIES…THE MAGIC!

 With the longest span of number one albums in history, Streisand has recorded 52 gold, 31 platinum and 13 multi-platinum albums in her career. She is the only woman to make the All-Time Top 10 Best Selling Artists list. Widely recognized as an icon in multiple entertainment fields, Streisand has attained unprecedented achievements as a recording artist, actor, concert performer, director, producer, author and songwriter. Streisand has been awarded two Oscars, five Emmys, ten Golden Globes, eight Grammys plus two special Grammys and two CableACE Awards – the only artist to receive honors in all of those fields of endeavor. Streisand received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama this past November. Her many other honors include the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Endowment for the Arts Medal, three Peabody Awards and the French Légion d’Honneur. She is also the first female film director to receive the Kennedy Center Honors.

The Tony Awards will be broadcast in a live three-hour ceremony from the Beacon Theatre, on the CBS television network, Sunday, June 12, 2016. For more information on the Tony Awards, visit TonyAwards.com and Facebook.com/TheTonyAwards and follow @TheTonyAwards on Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat.
