Barbra Streisand stage and movie star, director composer, activist, Grammy Emmy Tony and Oscar winner today accomplished another mile stone in her career. Miss Streisand new album PARTNERS debuted at number on the Billboard charts making her the only female artist to have at least one Album appear on the charts at number one for the last six decades.
Miss Streisand released this note to her fans today.
Hearing the news that “Partners” entered the charts at #1 was an overwhelming feeling of joy!!
Being told that I’ve had #1 albums in six consecutive decades makes me feel truly blessed and grateful to have such loyal fans. I feel you rooting for me and I so appreciate all of your energy and support.
It’s especially sweet since I get to share this moment with my wonderfully talented partners who I had the pleasure of singing with: Michael Bublé, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Babyface, Billy Joel, Blake Shelton, Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli, John Legend, Josh Groban, my beloved son Jason Gould…and last but not least, Elvis Presley…forever The King!
Finally, thank you to Rob Stringer and my Columbia Records family, my manager Marty Erlichman, my creative team on this project – Kenny Edmonds, Walter Afanasieff, Dave Reitzas, Bill Ross, and Jay Landers…and Ken Sunshine for getting the word out… we did it guys!!
With lots of love,
Miss Streisand is now 72 years old and is proof, as Walt Disney said, “All dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
