Barbra Streisand Actress/singer/director/writer/composer/producer/designer/author/photographer/activist Barbra Streisand is the only artist ever to receive Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, Directors Guild of America, Golden Globe, National Medal of Arts and Peabody Awards and France’s Légion d'honneur as well as the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award. She is also the first female film director to receive the Kennedy Center Honors. She won Oscars for both Best Actress (“Funny Girl”) and Best Original Song (for her composition of “Evergreen” which has since become a standard.) She also was nominated for Best Actress for “The Way We Were.” The three films she directed received 14 Oscar nominations. An eight-time Grammy Award winner, she is the only performer to have number one albums in five consecutive decades. According to the Recording Industry Association of America, her 51 gold albums, 30 platinum and 18 multi-platinum exceed all other female singers. The RIAA also notes that her 72.5 million albums sales tops its list of album sales by a female singer. The debut at #1 of her “Love Is The Answer” album became her 9th record to reach that top spot.. Her most two most recent albums, “What Matters Most” and “Release Me,” became her 31st and 32nd to reach the Top Ten in the ratings charts. With that, she passed The Beatles (with whom she had been tied at 30) to become the third highest achiever in that significant statistic, exceeded only by the Rolling Stones and Frank Sinatra. She is the only female among the top ten album-selling recording artists. Her six most recent albums have all charted in the Top Ten on the Billboard chart. Her civil rights activism and philanthropic pursuits are just as impressive. The Streisand Foundation has given millions of dollars in 2100 grants to non-profit organizations and she has raised many millions more through her performances. - amazon.com
