“I’ve always loved the song ‘Pure Imagination,’” Streisand says in the behind-the-scenes video. “I thought Seth MacFarlane would be great.”
The duet is part of the legend’s return with the upcoming album Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.
“When I heard that Barbra Streisand wanted to work with me it honestly shocked the hell out of me. It still shocks the hell out of me,” MacFarlane said about the duet. “It is nothing short of a spectacular honor.”
I believe in the power of imagination… I love this song… recording it as a duet with Seth MacFarlane was a joy! #BarbraENCORE
