Happy Sunday: Always Take Your Cue from Whoopi

Following on last week’s theme of movies I’ve seen way too many times, here’s one of my other middle school favorites: Sister Act 2. Everyone knows Lauryn Hill was in this before she became everyone’s favorite Fugee, but unless you’ve seen the movie 1,000 times (like me) you may not recognize Ahmal (played by Ryan Toby) as a member of City High. And while the finale performance of “Joyful, Joyful” is a crowd pleaser, I’ve always loved “Oh, Happy Day!”

Honestly, I tear up every time I see this movie. When Lauryn finishes killing that solo and then rejoins the chorus the sheer joy of the performance makes me emotional. I’m still a weird kid. (Also, the ’90s style in this movie is everything I ever aspired to in middle school.)
