Glee's Lea Michele sings Streisand

By Jennifer Lipman, June 14, 2010


Glee's Jewish lead actress Lea Michele takes centre stage with her co-star Matthew Morrison to perform a rendition of 'Don't Rain on my Parade' at the 2010 Tony Awards ceremony.

The song comes from the musical 'Funny Girl', starring Barbra Streisand and Ms Michele is apparently in the running for the same role when the show returns to Broadway.

At the ceremony, another Jewish actress had reason to celebrate, with Scarlett Johansson winning best featured actress in a play.
