Today is Barbra Streisand's 70th birthday.   Even if you are not a fan -- and I don't know how you could not be -- this woman has had an extremely impressive career.  Singer, songwriter, actress, director, producer, fundraiser, activist -- there is no one like her in the entertainment business.

She has won an Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy among many other awards.

Yentl was released in 1983 which means she was 41 when it came out - so all you women out there who think you need to be 25 to direct, think again.

Here's some other facts about Barbra she has:

  • sold 70 million records worldwide
  • two Oscars
  • one Tony
  • five Emmys
  • 10 Grammys
  • 10 Golden Globes
  • one CableAce Award
  • A Peabody Award
  • Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Film Institute

Here are some of awesome videos in honor of her birthday.
