Barbra Streisand Tribute Artist/Impersonator to Perform; Benefits Wounded Warriors
Native New Yorker Barbra Streisand may live in California now, but NYC residents can still enjoy an experience of “Babs” live in concert. Yonkers native Joni Lambert has traveled the U.S. and Canada with her Streisand tribute show in which she performs a concert with the look and sound of the great diva. Lambert will now bring her show to The West End Lounge on Saturday, August 22nd at 7:00pm. Ten percent of the profits from the show will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
A singer and stage performer since childhood, Lambert’s first Barbra Streisand imitation performance was at the age of 11 years old. She carried her love of music and performing throughout her life, appearing in countless shows, including the off-Broadway musical, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. Her years of formal vocal training serve her in her capacity as a Streisand tribute performer as she entertains audiences with the look, persona and sound of Barbra. Lambert pays close attention to detail when “becoming” Barbra from the signature nails to the imitation of the famous Donna Karin gown. Her Streisand tribute show includes a variety of songs spanning Streisand’s 50 plus year career, including hits from her Broadway, television and movie successes. She wrote about her journey in her book, “How I Became Barbra Streisand: My Life as a Barbra Streisand Tribute Artist”.
Ten percent of the profits from the event will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Lambert explains, “I believe it’s important for us to take care of our heroes. They’re the reason I’m free to perform and follow my dream. They deserve better than they’re getting, so I wanted to give something back.”
