Lea Michele on Meeting Barbra Streisand: 'All My Dreams Had Come True'

Lea Michele rocks her red jacket while arriving at the Z100 Studios in New York City on Wednesday morning (May 21).

The 27-year-old actress/singer stopped by The Elvis Duran Z100 Morning Show to chat up her new book, “Brunette Ambition”, which is out in stores now.

Inside her book, Lea wrote about meeting her idol, Barbra Streisand for the first time. Read the excerpt below:

“I attended The Grammys a few nights later because I was presenting an award; Barbra sang four songs that night, and Evergreen, which I love, was one of them. It was the first time I had ever heard her sing live. I left The Grammys early, in order to avoid the post-event valet rush, and was standing there in the quiet before the storm waiting for my car when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around, and it was Barbra. And she said, ‘I just wanted to say thank you for introducing me to your generation.’ And I gave her a big hug, and told her that I thought she was amazing, and she looked at me and asked, ‘Did I sound good tonight?’ And I said, ‘You were incredible.’ And that was it.

“The minute she walked away, I started to cry hysterically. Sometimes you meet your idols and they don’t live up to your expectations, but that moment was one of the best in my life. As soon as my car pulled up I called Ryan Murphy to tell him that it was over: That I had met Barbra and didn’t need to be in this business anymore. All my dreams had come true.”

FYI: Lea is wearing a CamiNYC white tank.

    Good, now please go away!

    I’ll take “things that next happened” for $500. Why would Barbra waste her time on this trash?

    Lea Michele has a huge talent and she is beautiful in and out. She is the Barbra Streisand of the our generation. I have only known Barbra through Lea. Thanks to her.
