Barbra Streisand gets no kick out of performing live. Stage fright, feeling "like a show off," and an aversion to the trappings of fame have limited the double Oscar and 10-time Grammy winner to singing just 100 public concerts since 1963. So, at age 75, Streisand took the opportunity to capture on film the Miami concert from her 2016 U.S. tour for a Netflix special. "Barbra: The Music... The Mem'ries... The Magic!" is set to be released on Wednesday (November 22). In the Netflix special, Streisand sings many of her best-known songs from her 11 No. 1 albums, including classics like "The Way We Were," "People" and "You Don't bring Me Flowers," mixed with film clips and behind the camera footage from movies including "Yentl," and some of her recording sessions. It also captures some of the "Funny Girl" star's private moments - doing her own make-up backstage, rehearsing, and nerves.
