Brooklyn’s hometown girl wowed fans at Barclays Center during her  “Back to Brooklyn” tour.

Belting out tunes at the age of 70, Barbra Streisand regaled 18,000 attendees on Thursday night for almost 3 hours with songs and memories of Brooklyn and gratitude for the city of her birth.

“I left Brooklyn to pursue my dreams. Brooklyn never quite left me,” she said.

Streisand hit the high notes and evoked nostalgia with over two dozen songs including classis such as “People”, “The Way We Were”, and “Evergreen”.

According to Streisand, the last performance she conducted in Brooklyn was in 1979.

Streisand also took a moment to make a statement about the upcoming US presidential elections.

“I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, but … if you believe in affordable health care and women’s rights … if you want to move forward and not back, you know who to vote for,” she said.

  1. Please change the title of this article. You probably do not realize that you have derived your title from the porn movie "Debbie does Dallas" It is not fitting the dignity of your publication or Ms. Streisand

  2. I also grew up in Brooklyn but attended Madison and Midwood HS. Why should Barbara not be attached to something less dignified since her support for Obama and others of his ilk is not support for the continued survival of Israel. She is an American Jew who would give support to any and all things socialistic to the detriment of the Israeli State.

  3. Barbra Streisand is truly a great singer. She is also truly a great B.S. artist when she puts her political beliefs out to the audience. No one there paid 400.00 to listen to her talk about the election.
    It's too bad these so called celebrities can't keep their political opions to themselves.
