It’s tough to believe, but the 1992 blockbuster “Sister Act” is now 25-years-old. Yup, it was a quarter of a century ago that we first saw Whoopi Goldberg as a lounge singer who goes undercover as a nun as part of witness protection program after seeing a mob hit.
In honor of “Sister Act”‘s 25th anniversary, Goldberg and much of the cast joined on “The View” to perform their hit song from the film, “I Will Follow Him.” And of course, they donned nuns habits for the occasion.
“The View” shared the moment on their YouTube channel, so you can watch the whole rousing performance:
Goldberg and the gang have still got it, just like they did back in 1992!
Goldberg earned a number of accolades for her portrayal of Deloris Van Cartier aka Sister Mary Clarence, including an American Comedy Award for Funniest Actress in a Motion Picture, a nomination for the MTV Movie Award for Best Female Performance and a NAACP Image Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture.
Other notable stars from “Sister Act” include Beth Fowler, who once again plays a woman of the cloth as Sister Jane Ingalls on “Orange Is The New Black,” and 82-year-old Maggie Smith, who played Mother Superior. Smith could not be in attendance, but sent her well wishes via a taped recording: “I can’t believe this is happening, and that it was 25 years ago. I feel I must be the oldest nun left.”
When asked if she would consider starring in a third sequel of the iconic film, Goldberg replied, “Well, yeah, I would. It would take a script and Marc Shaiman,” referring to the film’s composer.
Here’s hoping! We’ll pray on it.
