Politically minded superstar Barbra Streisand is reportedly planning to perform a "major" fundraising concert for America's DEMOCRAT party.

The FUNNY GIRL actress is desperate to help Democratic hopeful John Kerry oust PRESIDENT George W Bush at this year's (04) general election - and hoping for help from celebrity pals.

A source tells American gossip site THE SCOOP, Streisand is "even hoping to overcome her fear of performing in front of crowds and might sing at the event".

The source adds,"She was quite a generator of funds for Clinton, and she can do it again for Kerry."

Plans for the bash are still "in the early stages - but it's probably at her Malibu estate and probably for late spring".
