“Kirk Kerkorian was a unique, rare and very special person. He was a man of extraordinary generosity,” renowned singer Barbra Streisand has said about the late Armenian-American businessman.
Barbra Streisand left the following note on her official Facebook page:
“Kirk Kerkorian. 1917-2015.
Throughout the years, Kirk Kerkorian was a man of extraordinary generosity. He rarely sought attention or acknowledgement for his contributions.
In 1969 I opened Mr. Kerkorian’s International Hotel in Las Vegas. Not until New Year’s Eve 1993 did I return for the opening of his magnificent MGM Grand Hotel. At that time, because of his generous contribution to my foundation, I was able to give support to the fight against AIDS and the fight for Women’s & Children’s Rights and the Environment.
Then again in 2013 he joined me in the fight against Women’s Heart Disease.
He was a unique, rare and very special person and I will always be grateful to him.”
