Barbra Streisand and Jamie Foxx Take on ‘The Sound of Music’
Barbra Streisand and Jamie Foxx have teamed up for an unlikely collaboration to duet on a classic song from The Sound of Music. The Ray star took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a photo of himself in a recording studio with the Hollywood veteran cozying up next to him.
He added the caption, “You cannot tell me that my life is not blessed… Just finished doing a record with The [sic] legendary Barbra Streisand.”
He then added, “climb every mountain,” suggesting the odd couple had collaborated on a cover of the track from the beloved musical. Streisand, who like Foxx is also an Oscar and Grammy winner, commended her new musical partner on Twitter tweeting, “So sweet, funny… excellent singer too!!” The duet hints at a possible follow-up to Streisand’s 2014 album Partners, for which she covered classic songs with male performers including Stevie Wonder, John Legend, John Mayer, Lionel Richie, Michale Buble and even Elvis Presley from an earlier recording.
