Tweet It: @LegendsConcert introduces addition of @SharonOwens as #BarbraStreisand @FlamingoVegas
LAS VEGAS – The dynamic cast of Legends in Concert, Las Vegas’ longest-running live tribute show at Flamingo Las Vegas, introduced Barbra Streisand to its cast of award-winning tribute artists on Monday, Sept. 29.
Through the end of the year, the talented Sharon Owens will honor the legendary Barbra Streisand with her uncanny resemblance and breathtaking vocal range of three full octaves. Owens found success after winning FOX TV’s “Performing As…” reality competition show where she stunned audiences with her talent. Owens has been featured as the legendary singer in “Entertainment Tonight,” “Access Hollywood,” “Extra” and in People Magazine. With more than three decades of experience as a tribute artist, Owens continues to take audiences back in time to ‘60s Broadway, ‘70s disco and ‘80s films with her rendition of Barbra Streisand performances.
The addition on Sharon Owens to the Legends in Concert lineup comes as Streisand just released her 34th, best-selling studio album, “Partners.” Featuring twelve harmonious duets with popular chart-topping singers such as Elvis Presley, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Billy Joel, John Legend, Michael Bublé and John Mayer, among others, Billboard reports the hit album will reach the Top 200, which would make Streisand the only person in history to have a No. 1 album in six different decades.
No stranger to working with the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Streisand and Elvis Presley’s virtual duet, “Love Me Tender,” is slated to hit the charts as the fan favorite from the album. The two legends met for the first time in Las Vegas on Streisand’s opening night at the International Hotel in 1969, now Westgate Resorts & Casino, and will reunite as tribute artists on the Legends in Concert stage this season.
The current cast has a range of music legends, from contemporary pop stars to classic icons. With 11 performances every week in the Donny & Marie Showroom, guests will be able to watch the stars align with show times including: Sunday and Monday at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., Tuesday at 9:30 p.m., Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday at 4:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
