Iconic singer Barbra Streisand pays her tribute to late composer Marvin Hamlisch by sharing the never-before-seen photos on her official Instagram account.
Hamlisch, who died on 6 August after a short illness, wrote scores of hit records for movies and such musicals as A Chorus Line. The composer earned three Academy Awards, a Tony, four Grammys, and four Emmys as well as the Pulitzer Prize.
In 2012, Barbra Streisand performed songs by Marvin Hamlisch at a memorial service for the late composer. Streisand, a friend of Hamlisch for 45 years, sang The Way We Were, one of his best-known songs.
The 78-year-old singer uploaded some rare photos of herself with the composer and penned down an emotional letter. Here is the message from Barbra Streisand:
“Today, eight years ago, the world lost a great person and a great composer, and I lost a great friend. Miss you very much, Marvin.”
