In an elegant white tent nestled among the barn-shaped houses that dot her Malibu compound, Barbra Streisand sang and former President Bill Clinton spoke to a crowd gathered to raise funds for women's heart health.

Guests paid as much as $100,000 per couple to attend the intimate fundraising dinner Thursday supporting the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Streisand donated $10 million to the new research and treatment facility and solicited million-dollar donations from wealthy friends she called personally.

Heart disease kills more women each year than all cancers combined.

Streisand performed four songs, including "Smile" with singer Josh Groban. Other guests at the event included designer Donna Karan, Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone, NBCUniversal chief Ron Meyer and actors Josh Brolin and Diane Lane.
