Veteran singer Barbra Streisand was overjoyed to perform a 'duet' with Elvis Presley from beyond the grave, hailing the moment as "special".

The Way We Were hitmaker sings along with The King on his hit ballad Love Me Tender for her new album Partners, which also includes duets with other iconic performers such as Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, and Lionel Richie.

Streisand admits she felt honoured to work with such a galaxy of stars on the record, but her track with Presley was a moment to remember.

She tells Sky News, "You know, I had met Elvis when I opened the International Hotel (in Las Vegas) in 1969 and then two weeks later Elvis came in. He came to my opening night and I came to his opening night, but to sing with him now virtually, around his track, was kind of special to me, because I thought he was so special. There's something right about that because we did have this connection twice."
