Overwhelming is perhaps the signature word for Streisand. She is the only artist ever to have won an Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, Directors Guild of America, Golden Globe, National Medal of Arts and Peabody Awards, as well as the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Streisand began her singing career at a gay bar called The Lion in The Village in New York City in the 1960s. The uniqueness of her voice spread into other nightclubs and into guest appearances on The Tonight Show and then into the 1962 musical “I Can Get It For You Wholesale,” for which she won a Best Supporting Actress Tony nomination. In 1964, she starred on Broadway in “Funny Girl.” The main song in the musical, “People,” became her signature. “Funny Girl” became a movie in 1968, and for this, Streisand won the Academy Award. She went on to more movie films by directing, producing, and starring in the highly successful “Yentl” in 1972, “The Prince of Tides” in 1991, called perhaps the best of her screen career, and “The Mirror Has Two Faces” in 1996.
