Streisand pride at Brooklyn concert

Barbra Streisand performed at the Barclays Centre in the Brooklyn borough of New York

Barbra Streisand was full of Brooklyn pride as she belted out well-known tunes during a concert at the newly built Barclays Centre.

The three-hour show was Barbra's return to her Brooklyn hometown, where she is also performing on Saturday.

The 70-year-old told the crowd of 18,000 the last time she performed solo in Brooklyn was "on somebody's stoop on Pulaski Street" as an eight-year-old.

She played with the crowd, often telling jokes and taking in the many screams of "I love you Barbra!"

She entered the stage in a shimmery black ensemble, holding her hands close to the microphone as she performed songs including People, Evergreen and The Way We Were.

The Funny Girl star sang a duet with her son, Jason Gould, asking the 45-year-old: "Do you need anything, like, a sweater?"
