JERUSALEM (AP) — An Israeli government official says Barbra Streisand is coming to town.
The official says the celebrated American Jewish singer will perform in Israel in June in honor of Israeli President Shimon Peres‘ 90th birthday.
The official was speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not permitted to brief reporters about the matter. There was no immediate comment from Miss Streisand.
The official says Miss Streisand’s appearance will coincide with a yearly speaker’s conference headed by the Israeli president. This year’s conference takes place June 18-20 in Jerusalem.
Israeli media said Miss Streisand also would perform in two concerts.
