BroadwayBox is wishing you a FABULOUS Monday, friends. What better way to celebrate Sister Act's 9th Broadway Anniversary than with 9 fabulous videos of some fierce Deloris Van Cartiers in action!
Music legend Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater penned this bop for the Broadway musical of the beloved Whoopi Goldberg 1992 film. The song captures the sass and splendor of Deloris spectacularly!
Yas we love original Deloris Van Cartier, Patina Miller. That belt at 2:32 and the final note! Star star star.
First off - outfit! GLAM! Secondly, thank you for the "hot shocking pink" at 2:20.
We couldn't not include Cynthia's! We just wish this was an official video. The "wait and see" is effortless!
Alex is "meant to be where the spotlight shines"... always. This is the cover we dreamed of. Thank you for 1:55 and the incredible "wait and see".
Currently playing Susan in the Company revival, Rashidra was an original Broadway Deloris cover and took over the role during a small window in 2012. Her riff at 1:43 - come on!
Serving you ACT.ING. with a voice to match! Alysha was a Broadway Deloris cover and we can see why - she IS fabulous. We're living for the confidence at 0:37 - 1:00.
Hadestown fans will recognize this ensemble member who is fabulous, baby! Yet another outstanding Broadway Deloris cover. A moment of awed silence for the outstanding riff at 2:20.
