Barbra Streisand is set to perform in Israel for President Shimon Peres’ 90th birthday this summer. Reports from the Hebrew-language newspaper, “Yediot Acharonot,” confirm that the world icon will be performing either June 15 or 16 in the Holy Land.

Streisand, 70, has become a household name throughout her 50-year career. With projects like “Funny Girl” and “The Way We Were,” it’s no wonder the talented performer has been awarded every American accolade. In fact, she is one of the only entertainers that has won a Grammy, Oscar, Emmy, and Tony Award.

This international performance holds even more weight considering Streisand has only had five world tours throughout her singing career. Her last tour in October 2012 made $40 million and let 154,000 die-hard fans witness her excellence. Her performance in Israel will be quite a special one.

The location of the performance has yet to be confirmed, but reports have surfaced that Streisand will be attending the opening night of the Israeli Presidential Conference on June 18 at Binyanei Ha’Uma (also referred to as the Jerusalem International Convention Center).

This won’t be Streisand’s first trip to the Holy Land. The powerful vocalist and compassionate Zionist has help raised money for IDF soldiers and other Israeli causes. Being her first performance in Israel, and the closeness she shares with the Jewish State, this is sure to be a very intimate, special experience for everyone involved.
