I've endured Larry Kramer's outbursts in the past, not wishing to dignify them with a response. But at a time when we are all pulling together to achieve such giant steps toward gay equality, it is anguishing to me to have my devotion to this cause so distorted.

SATURDAY SPECIAL: Barbra's BROADWAY ALBUM BetSATURDAY SPECIAL: Barbra's BROADWAY ALBUM Bet
by Pat Cerasaro - February 12, 2011

Following yesterday's Grammy Award-centric SOUND OFF Lady Gaga edition, today's SATURDAY SPECIAL focuses on the voice of the century who will be performing at this year's 53rd annual Grammy Awards ceremony at 8 PM on CBS - the one and only Barbra Streisand. In a recording career spanning five decades - having won her first Grammy in 1963 - Barbra has simply blazed a new path in what a performer can achieve over the course of a career. Her accomplishments speak for themselves, perhaps none more so than winning both a Best Song Oscar and Grammy for a song she composed and performed for A STAR IS BORN, 'Evergreen'. The following clips feature a number of Barbra-centric performances from the last couple of decades, some featuring performers who are set to make a re-appearance at the show on Sunday night. It will be worth tuning in for the Aretha Franklin tribute - featuring Christina's Aguilera's 'Ain't No Way' and Jennifer Hudson's 'Respect', alone, but all eyes will be on whether or not Barbra will fulfill the prophecy she set down when she won 24 years ago! See why below! (more...)
