Thirty years later, some members of the cast of “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit” reunited with star Whoopi Goldberg on “The View.”

Goldberg was beloved in her portrayal of Deloris van Cartier, a woman who in the 1992 film “Sister Act” poses as a nun while in a witness protection program. By the 1994 sequel, the character is implored by her former friends to once again become Sister Mary Clarence to help the choir at the fictitious St. Francis Academy in San Francisco.

So it made sense for Goldberg to host a reunion show Wednesday on the ABC daytime talk series she helps moderate.

The cast members helped Goldberg kick off the show by reenacting their performance of “Oh Happy Day” from the movie.
