Yes, today is the Academy Award-winning singer, theatre and film actress, composer, liberal political activist, film producer and director's birthday. She has won Oscars for Best Actress and Best Original Song as well as multiple Emmy Awards, Grammy Awards, Golden Globe Awards and an honorary Tony Award. Streisand now ranks as the top-selling female artist in U.S. history with 71 million albums sold in the USA alone, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. She is considered one of the most successful female entertainers in modern entertainment history and is the only woman in the top 10 biggest selling music artists in the U.S. I was four when I saw Funny Girl and have been hooked ever since. She is fabulous! Happy Birthday, Barbra!!!
