Washington, Sept 18 (ANI): Barbra Streisand headlined a fundraiser for the US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama in Los Angeles.

According to sources, she sang four songs including When the Sun Comes Out, Make Someone Happy, What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life? and Shining Hour.

In between songs, Streisand spoke a little bit about Obama and the reason she was there.

“I”m not here to make a political speech… Tonight my thoughts are only personal… I can”t wait for the morning on November 5th when the people who said ”Yes we can” wake up and say ”Yes we did,”” quoted her, as saying.

Streisand was not the only performer on the bill. She was preceded by Ben Harper and also by Broadway star Raul Esparza, who sang “America the Beautiful.”

Those in attendance at the two events included actors Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as DreamWorks founders Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg. (ANI)
