Barbra Streisand receiving the “Ruth Bader Ginsburg Woman of Leadership Award”

 

On February 7, 2023, the multi-award-winning actress and singer, Barbra Streisand, received the prestigious “Ruth Bader Ginsburg Woman of Leadership Award.” The esteemed award was presented to her by Justice Sonia Sotomayor and the Dwight D. Opperman Foundation Chair Julie Opperman in a private ceremony. This award comes as a recognition of Streisand’s impact on the world as a female icon and a legend in the entertainment industry.

Streisand is a recipient of numerous awards, including two Oscars, 10 Grammys, nine Golden Globes, five Emmys, a special Tony, and 42 platinum records. Her ability to shape a phrase and make it seem like she is speaking the lyrics, creating an intimacy and freshness that has inspired generations of performers. She has also changed what it means to be a female entertainer, as she refused to give in to the pressure to change her looks and became a leading lady anyway.

In addition to her numerous awards, Streisand has also made a mark in the business world. She is a smart businesswoman who has made millions trading stocks. She also owns the master tapes to all her recordings, something that The Beatles, Prince, and Taylor Swift were unable to negotiate. Her master tapes are stored in a specially-curated vault alongside her movie canisters and reels of television specials.

Streisand’s latest album, “Release Me 2,” was compiled from her archives. The album features 10 hidden gems from her six-decade career, including “Be Aware,” “Rainbow Connection,” and “If Only You Were Mine.” Her unique approach to singing and movie roles has made her a standout in the entertainment industry.

At 81, Streisand has decided to retire from show business. In her recent memoir, “My Name is Barbra,” she revealed that she hasn’t experienced much joy in her life and is determined to change the narrative. She wants to live life, have fun, and get in her husband’s truck and just wander. Her decision to prioritize happiness and fulfillment over fame serves as a powerful reminder that true contentment often lies in the simple joys of life.
