Barbra Streisand Teams With Elvis for Duet

We are only a couple of weeks away from the release of another legendary Elvis duet, this time with Barbra Streisand.  

Set to be released on September 16, the "Partners" album pairs Barbra Streisand with many legendary male vocalists artists including Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Billy Joel and of course, Elvis Presley. The Elvis and Barbra "Love Me Tender" collaboration was made possible with the full approval of the Presley Estate.

Elvis and Barbra enjoyed a close friendship throughout the years, a strong admiration for each other's extraordinary talents and they often attended each other's Vegas concerts.  After opening the showroom at the International Hotel in Las Vegas, Elvis and The Colonel sent Barbra a joint telegram which read in part, “We are greatly honored to have the International Hotel folks think enough of Elvis to engage him to follow a great star like you.” 

A few years later, after attending Elvis' midnight show on March 28, 1975, Streisand, along with boyfriend Jon Peters, met with Elvis backstage specifically to ask him to play opposite her in the movie "A Star Is Born" - a role which later went to Kris Kristofferson.

Visit to hear the "Love Me Tender" duet with Elvis and Barbra.
