Barbra Streisand released a video today showing Daisy Ridley and Anne Hathaway singing At the Ballet as part of her new album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway which will release on August 26, 2016. The video of the audio has also been posted.
In the video, Streisand says of Hathaway, “was perfect casting for the role of Maggie. When Anne came into the studio, I was so happy to see her looking radiant and glowing, no makeup, with the beauty of a woman about to give birth to a child.”
As for Ridley, she states that she was “interviewing Daisy Ridley for Gipsy and I said ‘Can you sing?’ and she said ‘Yeah, I can sing.’ I didn’t know whether if that was supposed to be like me in Funny Girl when he says ‘Can you skate?’ I went ‘of course I can skate!’ and then the next minute she’s falling all over the place because she can’t skate. But I took a chance with Daisy and it paid off.”
