A Funny Girl

In the summer between my freshman and sophomore year I was introduced to something magical. For this was the summer that I was introduced to Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl, now one of my favorite movie musicals. Two of the best songs were recently covered by Glee's Lea Michele. Now I love Barbra's voice, but Lea Michele gives me chills. I watch her performances over and over.

"Being Good" became my personal mantra through high school and to the present. It came after a discussion with my father on personal work ethic and "giving 100%". (I think we were picking up nickels on the side of the street at the time.) Enjoy:

And then close your eyes for poor video but an amazing voice (from Funny Girl):
