Today, Barbara Streisand's birthday. She was born in New York in a poor family and was often subjected to ridicule peers who called her homely. The first role she trusted, she worked as a cleaner in the theater. After the shocking part was a singer in a nightclub and a small role in the musical "I'll get it to you wholesale", which made her famous.
One year later, she released her debut album, which snatched two awards "Grammy". Then three, and each held the top of the charts. In total, the indefatigable Barbara released about six dozen records that have sold about 145 million. Copies. It's as if every inhabitant of Russia was a disc Barbra Streisand.
In the movie, too, was not idle: in the 68th "Funny Girl" earned her an insane popularity along with the "Oscar". Barbara is proud to have been able to achieve such success with non-standard appearance, and hopes that their example inspires girls without perfect information.
Today Streisand 71 years old, she still appeared in films, involved in politics and producing. It is still in the game.
