Barbra Streisand reveals she and son Jason Gould will record a duet
24 September 2012

Barbra Streisand directed her son, Jason Gould, in the 1991 film The Prince of Tides and now is planning another professional collaboration with him.

Streisand tells Katie Couric in an interview to air Tuesday (25 September) that she is working on a new album of duets and one of her singing partner will be her only child who was born during her marriage to Elliot Gould.

‘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 tells 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.

Streisand recalls singing with her son when he was a kid.

‘When I came home from work, we would sing together. And then when he was 15, I heard this gorgeous hum from behind his door.’

Although he wasn’t prepared to share his musicality with his mom then, Gould is now.

Says Streisand: ‘A few years ago he said, ‘You know I’ve started to sing and work on some music,’ and I said, ‘Really?’ And this is a tough spot to enter that profession for him, I suppose. I said, ‘Jason, I have to sing with you. You have to be on my duets album.”
