Barbra Streisand Brooklyn Concert: Remembering The Music Legend Through Photos

Barbra Streisand returns to her hometown of Brooklyn Thursday to perform the first of two nights at the newly erected Barclays Center. But before Barbra -- who changed her name from "Barbara" at age 18 in order to be unique -- was a music legend selling out glittering 19,000-seat stadiums, she was just a young girl in Hollywood, filled with dreams and songs to sing.

Here, we celebrate the 70-year-old superstar with a slideshow capturing the best of Babs over the years.
