boogie woogie on the piano.

I've had this melody stuck in my head for two days.

Sister Mary Clarence signals for the choir to smile. Their voices open and a peaceful vibration enters the church. The nuns in the front pews are surprised. The 'misfit' group they had dismissed had found a fitting leader.

Then, the choir begins to clap their hands to a new, more energized beat. Each of the singer's voices ring clear and true. Before long, Sister Mary Clarence is twirling and dancing at the front of the stage. Her arms flail overhead and the altar boys tap their feet to the rhythm. Some passersby stop in the church to hear their joyful sound.

The level of energy in the room skyrockets as the choir nears its finish. Kathy Najimy as Sister Mary Patrick is my absolutely favorite.
