This behind-the-scenes video captures the anticipation and camaraderie amongst the orchestra as they prepare to back these two legends. Laughter fills the air when Michael quips about the cost of the session, lightening the mood and showcasing the warmth between him and Barbra.

Barbra reveals their creative approach to blending their unique musical backgrounds, transforming “It Had To Be You” from a tender ballad into a vibrant, big-band spectacle. “Michael is a big band singer. So I thought, why not start it as a ballad and then have the big band take over,” said the songstress. This fusion not only showcases their versatility but also adds a dynamic twist to the classic tune.

The process of recording live with an orchestra is highlighted as a rare and cherished method by co-executive producer Jay Landers. “This is a rarity, to have in this case two great singers, Michael Bublé and Barbra Streisand, in vocal booths and the band playing behind them,” Landers explains, underscoring the authenticity and excitement of capturing such moments in real-time. Barbra and Michael, each in their booths, feed off the energy of the live orchestra, a practice Barbra cherishes for the inspiration it brings to her performances.

Barbra also seems to agree. “This is the way I’ve always recorded. Since my first album, I’ve recorded with an orchestra. It’s so much fun! I get inspired by what the orchestra’s playing and it makes me do other things that I haven’t thought of until that moment singing with them.”

As they delve into the song, both artists are visibly moved and thrilled by the experience. Michael expresses his profound honor of being part of the project, emphasizing his respect for Barbra’s unparalleled talent in storytelling through song. Their mutual admiration shines through, making their rendition of “It Had To Be You” not just a performance, but a heartfelt exchange between two greats of the music world.
