An Enchanted Evening with Barbra Starring Sharon Owens @ Boca Black Box
Actress/singer Sharon Owens transforms herself into Barbra Streisand performing in “The Best Of Barbra, The Tribute”.
Accompanied by a seven piece band, Owens will sing more than 20 Streisand hits, share anecdotes on the many achievements of Streisand as an actress, film director, concert attraction and singer on stage and take questions and requests from the audience.
The real Barbra Streisand, who started her 65 plus year career in show business in 1962, has been so well-known that scores of impressionists, such as Marilyn Michael and Jim Bailey, (along with hundreds of others) had long careers with an impression of Barbra Streisand being in the core of their performances. Owens, who is from Tampa, never envisioned her career to be a Barbra Streisand Tribute performer when she first studied to be an actress at the University of South Florida in the 1980s.
“I never even thought I would want to spend most of my life being a tribute artist as Barbra Streisand or anybody other than myself,” said Owens from her home in Southwest Florida.
“But I was told whenever I auditioned how much I looked and sounded like Barbra (Streisand) continually. So, I took the bait and tried out being Barbra. In 1992, I performed as Barbra in “Legends In Concert” as one of many tribute artists and I haven’t stopped being Barbra since.”
Owens has been a Barbra Streisand tribute artist for more than 30 years, but is still young enough to be Barbra Streisand’s daughter.
