Iconic singer Barbra Streisand gave a special shoutout to Hillary Clinton at her New York concert Saturday night as the former Democratic presidential nominee and former President Bill Clinton sat in the audience.

Streisand introduced “our groundbreaking first lady, senator from New York, secretary of State, and the winner of our country’s popular vote, Hillary Rodham Clinton” as the audience rose to give her a standing ovation.

The singer referred to a recent interview by Hillary Clinton in which she said she has returned to public life and joined the movement against President Trump.

Streisand said it “makes us yearn for what could have been, what should have been,” The Associated Press reported.

“I was thrilled to hear yourself describe yourself as an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”

A vocal supporter and fundraiser for Clinton during the presidential election, Streisand also knocked Trump during her remarks. The singer recalled performing at Bill Clinton’s inauguration, and touted the former president’s accomplishments on taxes.

“And speaking of taxes, he showed us his tax returns,” she said about Bill Clinton, according to the AP.
