Barbra Streisand to release autobiography

Barbra Streisand will tell her life story in a memoir due to be published in 2017. Publisher Viking announced earlier this week that it will publish an autobiography from the legendary singer. 

Brian Tart (Viking president) said: Barbra Streisand's memoir is the entertainment story that has been on the top of every publisher's wish list for years.

"There are over fifty unauthorised biographies about Ms Streisand that are full of myths and inaccuracies, and she is finally going to tell her own story."

Streisand rose from humble beginnings as the daughter of a school secretary and a teacher to become one of the most famous women in the world. She currently holds the record for having the most top-ten albums of any female artist, and has won two Academy Awards.

Her most recent LP Partners earned a Grammy nomination this year in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category. Streisand starred in the West End and Broadway productions of Funny Girl and won her first Oscar for starring in the film adaptation.
