Ann Hampton expertly paints a musical portrait of the most celebrated singer of our time! A Platinum Award winning singer-songwriter, Ann Hampton Callaway celebrates the music of one of America’s most powerful and enduring artists known affectionately as “Babs”. Singing timeless classics from five decades of Barbra Streisand’s multi-faceted career, Callaway crafts a loving tribute to the icon who once described herself as being “simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy and driven.”

The Tony nominated actress puts unique pop/jazz spin on unforgettable songs from Barbra’s Broadway years (Funny Girl), her film works (A Star is Born), her early pop albums (People) and her later concept album (Higher Ground) which debuted at number 1 on Billboard and featured Ann’s original anthem, “At The Same Time.” Callaway weaves humorous and inspiring anecdotes of how Streisand began as such a role model for her and evolved as a mentor, recording Ann’s songs on six of her recent CDs, including “I’ve Dreamed Of You,” the song that Streisand sang on her wedding day in a night of soaring songs and stories. Callaway promises a performance that not only celebrates the extraordinary career of Barbra Streisand, but also reminds us of “the way we were.”

“For sheer vocal beauty, no contemporary singer matches Ms. Callaway.”
