After 13 years Barbra Streisand again performed at Madison Square Garden in the New York City. Pop superstar Mariah Carey attended the concert. Clintons and other political figures were also present at the concert, which made the concert political.
Streisand performed along with a dozen of talented musicians, and the concert was well prised by the fans, and Carey even went to Streisand’s seat after she finished her first song for the night.
New York City’s former Mayor David Dinkins, U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler, and Rev. Al Sharpton were some of the well-known politicians, along with the Clintons, who were present at the concert. Barbra Streisand advocated her Democratic ideology while performing through her songs. During the concert, Streisand asked her Republican fans to cover their ears, while she took a jab at the U.S. President Donald Trump with her song, “Send in the Clowns.” Later, when the song was over, a picture of the White House appeared on the screen with a circus tent on top of it. President Trump’s picture also appeared in the clown’s makeup.
Streisand has earlier also advocated her Democratic ideology with her song “Don’t Lie to Me.” The song was released last year, and it questioned Trump’s regime, pleading for change.
Finally, at the end of the concert, she thanked all the political figures for gracing her concert with their presence and expressed her unfulfilled desire of singing at Hillary Clinton’s inaugural gala, as she had sung at Bill Clinton’s inauguration in 1993.
Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Crystal, Richard E. Grant, Donna Karan, Rosie O’Donnell, Sally Field, Ben Platt, and Beanie Feldstein, were among the other celebrities who had attended the concert.
