Entertainment icon Barbra Streisand, who recently completed a nine-city concert tour, performed several songs at a September 9 fundraiser at New York's Cipriani for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, according to the Washington Post.

Among the tunes was a version of Stephen Sondheim's “Send in the Clowns” featuring all-new lyrics that mocked Republican nominee Donald Trump. Lyrics included “Something's amiss/I don't approve/If he were running the free world/Where would we move?/Name me a town./Just who is this clown?”

"Send in the Clowns," perhaps Sondheim's best-known song, is from his 1973 musical A Little Night Music. Rufus Wainwright also performed at the LGBT for Hillary Gala.
