Now 51 years old, Jason Gould did not start his career in music until he was in his mid-40s.

As reported by Gaystar News, Streisand's only son decided to enter the limelight because he felt "a need to express myself and explore my musicality."

Widely praised for his talent in singing, Gould is no doubt the son of an iconic musician.

His first album came out in September 2014. In a promo video, Gould said he entered the music industry much later in life because he feared being compared to his iconic mother.

"I can’t open my mouth ... People would compare me and I just didn’t think I’d ever want to go there," he said.

His mother, now 76, has sold 150 million albums and singles worldwide, making her one of the best-selling recording artists of all time.

Her multiple awards include two Academy Awards, 10 Grammy Awards, five Emmy Awards, a Special Tony Award, and an Americal Film Institute Award.

Streisand has been honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

According to Gaystar News, the iconic musician was amazed when she first heard some of the songs her son recorded. The experience, she said, was "jaw-dropping."

Streisand and Gould later performed side-by-side during her Back to Brooklyn tour. They sang How Deep is the Ocean, which is one of the tracks on Gould's first album.

While it took Gould almost five decades to embrace the spotlight, he had appeared in a film as a young man.

He starred alongside his mother in the famous 1991 film, The Prince of Tides. They played the characters of a mother-and-son duo - Susan Lowenstein and her son Bernard.

The film, which Streisand directed and co-produced the movie, went on to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
