Two-time Oscar Winner  American singer/actress Barbra Streisand, will perform for the first time since 1977  on ABC’s upcoming Oscar telecast on February 24, according to a press release by the academy.

The last time she performed at the Oscar telecast, she sang the love theme from “A Star Is Born” on the March 28, 1977 show, winning the Best Original Song Oscar for “Evergreen” that same night.

“In an evening that celebrates the artistry of movies and music,” said producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, “how could the telecast be complete without Barbra Streisand? We are honored that she has agreed to do a very special performance on this year’s Oscars, her first time singing on the show in 36 years.”

Streisand won her first Oscar for Best Actress in the play/book turned movie: “Funny Girl” (1968) and her second one in the 1976 remake of “A Star is Born”

So far, the singer/actress has not made any formal declarations or comments about her return performance to the Oscars.

Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane live on the ABC Television Network.
