Subject: Barbra Streisand extends US chart record

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/05/16 at 10:57 pm

Singer and actress Barbra Streisand has scored her 11th US number one album with her Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway. The star had already notched up more chart toppers than any other female artist, and now extends her lead over Madonna, who has eight. She also overtakes Elvis Presley, who has 10, to tie with Bruce Springsteen. Encore sees Streisand duet with the likes of Antonio Banderas and Anne Hathaway on songs from hit musicals. Among the 11 tracks are a version of Climb Ev'ry Mountain, with Jamie Foxx, and Pure Imagination, from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, performed with Seth MacFarlane.
