Storyline

The sisters come back to Delores's show to get her back as Sister Mary Clarence to teach music to a group of students in their parochial school which is doomed for closure. One of the girls, who is the most talented of the bunch, is forbidden to sing by her mother, although the choir has made it to the state championship. A group of stereotypical incompetent monks tries to stop them. Written by Scott Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

Quotes

Sister Mary Clarence: So because you think they sang it better you all are ready to leave 'cause you got scared? Aw yea, nah, that's your MO. See that's how you operate: Ooo, something new, better run away! Forget about all the people who busted their butt to get you here 'cause they believed in you.

She's back
24 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's one year later, Deloris has returned back to singing in Las Vegas, mobsters locked up. Things are OK until she is asked a favor by the head nun to return as a music teacher at the school the church runs. Things don't start off correctly, a bunch of neighborhood students, kids who have seen rough times, she tries to show them the talent they have in their voices. But it is going take some time and patience to prepare them for a big singing show. One day while practicing Deloris discovers that the students have been invited to sing for the pope, which we all hope it will go well. This was one of the best movies Whoopi has done.
