"Sister Act" is a feel-good musical comedy based on the film of the same name starring Whoopi Goldberg. When aspiring lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is placed in protective custody in a convent. She is assigned to assist with the choir, and using her vocal talent, she transforms the choir into a major attraction. Unfortunately, the newfound popularity of the choir blows her cover. When confronted by the killer, she experiences the power of friendship and sisterhood.
