Charles played the piano as he sang with Streisand during this unforgettable duet in 1973. The pair can be seen being mesmerized by each other’s musical prowess.

“One of the great musical moments of the 20th century,” one fan wrote. “So masterly and endearing,” another commented.

American country music artist Buck Owens originally wrote and recorded the iconic song, "Crying Time," in 1964.

But it was Ray Charles who popularized the song when he recorded a version of it. He eventually won Grammy awards in 1967 for his performance of the song, which has since spawned several covers.

OTHER UNFORGETTABLE COLLABORATIONS

Streisand is known for her eagerness to collaborate with equally talented artists. She has worked with iconic musicians Andrea Bocelli and Michael Bublé.

The singer has also opened up about the possibility of her moving to Canada is Democrats lose in the upcoming elections.

She said that Trump’s actions and decisions have made her lose hours of sleep, adding that she may be able to sleep better if Democrats occupy the White House.
