Lea Michele honours Barbra Streisand

Academy Award winning actress and singer Barbra Streisand was honoured last night (February 11) as the 2011 MusiCares Person of the Year at its 21st annual benefit gala at the Los Angeles Convenion Center.

In addition to the award, the pop legend was treated to a series of tribute performance from artists including cast members of 'Glee'.

Streisand herself is a focus of the popular musical show as Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry is often compared to her - as both Streisand and Berry boast prominent voices and noses.

Along with Michele and 'Glee' costars Darren Criss and Matthew Morrison, other performers at the benefit included Tony Bennett, Seal, Donna Summer, BeBe Winans, Stevie Wonder, Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock, LeAnn Rimes, Diana Krall, Barry Manilow, Kristin Chenoweth, and Nikki Yanofsky.

Streisand closed the evening with her own performance.
