Barbra Streisand to Appear on Carpool Karaoke

Cultural icon Barbra Streisand will take a drive with James Corden in an episode of Carpool Karaoke to air this week.

A trailer for the episode with Corden and Streisand singing ‘Don’t Rain On My Parade’ went live today to promote the show. Streisand sang the song in her 1968 movie ‘Funny Girl’.

The 76-year old music legend shared the news on her Twitter feed saying, “They say there’s a first time for everything… can you believe this was my first time singing out loud in a car? Had so much fun with @jkcorden – tune in to @latelateshow Thursday night!”

Barbra Streisand will released her 36th album ‘Walls’ on 2 November. ‘Walls’ is Streisand at her most political taken aim at Trump with the song ‘Don’t Lie To Me’.

In a statement she said:

This collection of songs reflects what’s been on my mind lately.

These are troubling times, and I felt compelled to add my voice to the dialogue some of us have been having. Many of the fundamental principles of democracy and freedom we’ve always taken for granted – freedom of the press, freedom of speech, freedom of expression – are eroding at an alarming rate. Even basic human decency appears to be melting away faster than the polar ice caps. I wanted to write and sing about some of these things… not only to convey my concerns, but also to state my belief that, if we remain vigilant to the truth, things can eventually turn around.

In the past year we’ve seen the very worst of humanity… and the very best. In the face of unimaginable natural disasters and unspeakable human cruelty, there have been many acts of kindness and courage to remind us of who we have the potential to be when we listen to the better angels of our nature.

I’ve been especially moved by the millions of young people in the United States and around the world who have found their collective voice and are demanding to be heard. They are more interested in building bridges than walls. They are the very definition of hope. They’re on my mind… and I dedicate this album to them.
