Melly Melody Entertainment is proudly presenting Hello Gorgeous - The Barbra Streisand Songbook at the Sunnybank Performing Arts Centre (SunPAC), on Saturday 25 June, 2 pm with evocative veteran performer Susanne Campbell (The Kitty Kats). Tickets are now on sale - one show only!

An actress, singer and filmmaker with an impressive six-decade career, Barbra Streisand is simply timeless. She is one of the best-selling recording artists of all time, with over 150 million records sold worldwide, and she is the only recording artist to have enjoyed a number-one album in each of the last seven decades!

Hello Gorgeous - The Barbra Streisand Songbook celebrates 80 years of Streisand magic and features Susanne Campbell, together with special guest, Simon Chamberlain (Cloudland, Oh what A Night!) backed by an onstage band with musical direction by Maestro Pete Kelly.

From cabaret and musical theatre to movie and pop songs, Streisand's catalogue is extraordinary, and her song selection is exemplary. Hello Gorgeous - The Barbra Streisand Songbook explores the highest-selling female recording artist of all time, featuring legendary hits 'The Way We Were', 'Evergreen', 'Don't Rain On My Parade', 'New York State of Mind,' 'You Don't Bring Me Flowers, People', and many more.

As a multi-award-winning phenomenon, Barbra Streisand continues to thrill audiences with her extraordinary voice and enormous talent. 'I am really excited to perform the songs from one of the most amazing female singers of this century. Barbra Streisand's songs are so iconic, organic and connected,' Ms Campbell says.

'She sings with so much meaning and really connects to the lyrics of a song, as well as her audience. I look forward to being a part of telling her story.'
