Barbra Streisand duets in concert with son Jason Gould

Gay son of singing icon finally sharing his vocal talent with audiences

Barbra Streisand duets in concert with son Jason Gould
16 October 2012

Barbra Streisand has done some pretty dazzling duets in her time with the likes of Judy Garland, Neil Diamond, Donna Summer, Tony Bennett and Celine Dion, among others.

But her latest duet partner is someone much closer to her heart: son Jason Gould who has been joining the singing icon for a duet as part of her current Back to Brooklyn tour.

Video has surfaced on Youtube (see below) of mother and son performing How Deep is the Ocean last week in Philadelphia.

After the duet, Streisand said: “Is that unbelievable? It’s just just because I’m his mom!”

In a mother-son moment that could have played out similarly in any household, prior to the song Streisand attempted to tell the audience about overhearing her son sing in his bedroom while he was a teenager.

He tried to stop the story, seeming embarrassed.

Streisand managed to tell the story without interruption on Katie Couric’s daytime show last month: ‘When he was 15, I heard this gorgeous hum from behind his door.’

‘When I heard the things he’s recorded, the musicianship, the sound of his voice, it’s like he has a little chamber music orchestra right in his vocal chords,’ Streisand told Couric. ‘I don’t know what it is. His sweetness, his inventiveness musically.’

Gould, 45, is openly gay and performed in films (Boys Life 3, Say Anything) and on stage (Twilight of the Golds) although not in the past decade. His father is actor Elliot Gould who was Streisand’s first husband.
