Barbra StreisandPerformed by Sharon Owens
Sharon began touring all over the world as a singer/ dancer with American Entertainment Productions, opening for acts such as the Letterman, the Mandrell Sisters, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn and many other country acts.
Although performing was Sharon's dream, so was getting an education. Sharon earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities and Vocal Music from the University of South Florida and is still pursuing her Master's in Education from Chapman University.
In 1990, she continued to work her way through college by singing and dancing at the Busch Gardens theme park in Tampa, Florida, where she also did commercial studio work for Sea World and performed in musical theater. Her college summers were spent touring the United States and England.
Sharon's career as a Barbra Streisand impersonator and tribute artist began in 1992, when Sharon moved to Los Angeles where she began singing Streisand in dinner theaters and cabaret nightclubs. Her uncanny resemblance and vocal ability to sing Streisand started her career as a Legends In Concert performer. In addition, Sharon has been performing her "Tribute to Barbra Streisand" to critical acclaim nationwide in major showrooms, for corporate events and as a Headliner in Las Vegas.
Most recently Sharon has turned to television where she was crowned the winner of the hit TV show on Fox called "Performing As..." This national success has created a whirlwind of Barbra fans waiting to see Sharon's famous tribute. Since her big TV win, she has been seen on Access Hollywood, Extra, Entertainment Tonight and even paid a visit to the Family Feud.
Sharon also tours with DK productions of "The Diva's" an all female cast direct from Las Vegas. With a rigorous travel schedule, look for Sharon Owens to bring her Tribute To Barbara to a city near you.
