A former President, a Secretary of State, and two leading ladies all in one place? Only Barbra Streisand could bring Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman together. The acclaimed artist put on a free and private concert in front of these notables and 100 lucky fans at the legendary Village Vanguard in New York City on Saturday, September 26, 2009. The last time Streisand performed at the famed club was in 1961, when she opened for Miles Davis.

The full set-list in order of performance included “Here’s To Life,” “In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning,” “Gentle Rain,” “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most,” “If You Go Away,” “Where Do You Start,” “Make Someone Happy,” “My Funny Valentine,” “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered,” “Evergreen,” “Some Other Time” and “The Way We Were.”
