I have just finished watching Barbra – The Music..The Mem’ries…The Magic on Netflix. It’s a wonderful review of a long and successful musical and acting career filmed during a concert in Miami in 2016.
What I was not expecting, however, was the last few minutes of the film which are a musical tribute to Barbra’s dog, Samantha (Sammie), who passed away in 2017.
For any of us who have lost a loved dog, you know the feeling when you sort through all your photos and videos and re-live the happy times of a life together. Well, Streisand has put hers to music. “Samantha Streisand-Brolin 2003-2017 In our hearts forever…”
Even if you don’t like Streisand’s music, you should fast forward to the end and see it for yourself – a fitting tribute to a much loved pooch.
