Streisand to sing at Oscars after 36 years

Singer Barbra Streisand

Actress, singer and director Barbra Streisand is a familiar figure at Hollywood's Oscars but she has sung on the annual awards show only once.

Streisand will perform again at the Academy Awards on February 24, producers said yesterday, without giving details.

Streisand, 70, has won two Oscars, one for best actress in Funny Girl the other for best original song, Evergreen, from her 1976 A Star Is Born. Her performance of the song at the 1977 Oscars was her only previous onstage stint at Hollywood's biggest night.

"In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music, how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand?" producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said.

"We are honoured that she agreed to do a very special performance at this year's Oscars."

Streisand has been nominated for several Oscars, including for best actress in The Way We Were and for best picture producer for The Prince of Tides.
