Barbra Streisand performs at conference

London: Singer-actress Barbra Streisand was reportedly paid USD 2.3 million for performing at a banking conference for an hour.

The 71-year-old Oscar-winner performed around 10 tracks, including `Memory`, `You Don`t Bring Me Flowers` and `People`, before being whisked off stage just as stealthily as she arrived, reported Contactmusic.

Around 4,000 Baron shareholders enjoyed the hour-long afternoon concert.

Recently the `Funny Girl` star said she never followed her family advice and always wanted to become an actress.

"My mother told me I should be a secretary, but I wanted to be an actress from when I was very young. Looking back I think it was maybe an escape," she had said.
