by Stage Tube - Aug 28, 2016

When embarking upon her latest album, Encore, icon Barbra Streisand was inspired by one of Broadway's favorite leading men, Hugh Jackman.

On the album, Streisand and Jackman sing the previously unproduced 'Any Moment Now' by the late, celebrated composer Marvin Hamlisch. This rendition of the song tells the story of a couple that has reached the breaking point in their marriage, and the video features clips from Streisand and Jackman's recording session for the track.  (more...)
