Breathtaking Video of Barbra Streisand Singing an Incredible Duo with Her Look-Alike Son
A heartwarming video shows the legendary singer Barbra Streisand performing a spectacular duet with her look-alike son Jason Gould.
In September 2014, Streisand, 76, published a video of their magnificent collaboration of "How Deep is the Ocean" on YouTube.
"I would never wish for my son to be anything but what he is. He is bright, kind, sensitive, caring, and a very conscientious and good person."
Since then, the video has amassed over one million views, with their fans leaving positive remarks.
A YouTube user wrote: "Jason Gould has such a beautiful voice! He is not in his Mother's shadow- instead, he is a bright light that shines with her! You can tell she is so proud of her son. He is talented!"
"This brought me to tears and made me think of my dearly departed Mom and how much I loved her," another follower doubled down.
"Glad he fought the pressure and SANG! His mom likely helped him to banish the thought that due to her singing being so amazing, people would compare. They sound wonderful together!" a third fan commented.
JASON'S LIFE AND CAREER
Jason, 52, is the son of Streisand from her first husband actor Elliott Gould, to whom she was married from 1963 until 1971.
Jason spent his formative years around major Hollywood players in Los Angeles, California. In 1989, he appeared in the film "Say Anything ...," and in 1991, he starred in the movie "The Prince of Tides." Since then, he has rarely appeared in front of the camera.
In 1997, he made his West End theatre début in the play "The Twilight of the Golds" at the Arts Theatre in London, England. In the same year, he wrote, produced, and directed the short film "Inside Out."
In recent years, Jason has begun singing, and he has released EPs, "Jason Gould" (2012) and "Morning Prayer/Groove" (2013). In 2017, he released a full-length music album, "Dangerous Man."
At 21 years old, Jason came out to his parents as a homosexual. Tabloids then outed him as being gay in 1991. In a 1999 interview with The Advocate, Streisand, who recently released a new album called “Walls," said:
"I would never wish for my son to be anything but what he is. He is bright, kind, sensitive, caring, and a very conscientious and good person. He is a very gifted actor and filmmaker. What more could a parent ask for in their child? I have been truly blessed."
The award-winning singer continued that her only wish for Jason "is that he continues to experience a rich life of love, happiness, joy, and fulfillment, both creatively and personally."
