Along with her work on the "The View," the multi-talented Whoopi Goldberg is known for having won a Grammy, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, an Emmy and a Tony.
You've seen her as a moderator on "The View" and in countless films and now you can see actress and comedian Whoopi Goldberg live in Las Vegas at Treasure Island.
Goldberg made her film debut in "The Color Purple" released in 1985. Her outstanding performance earned her a Golden Globe Award. The following year she starred in "Jumpin' Jack Flash." It was one of the first films to feature online communication as a key part of the plot.
In 1990 she starred alongside Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in the hit film "Ghost" and earned her second Golden Globe award. Her work in the film also earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first black female to win the award in almost 50 years.
She returned to the silver screen in a starring role in "Sister Act," released in 1992. The movie was a big success at the box office and earned Goldberg a Golden Globe nomination. The movie spawned a sequel, "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit," and was released in 1993. It starred most of the original cast including Goldberg.
Throughout the '90s and early 2000s Goldberg appeared in numerous films including "Corrina, Corrina," "Boys on the Side," "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" and "Rat Race." During this time she also performed as the voice of Shenzi, one of the hyenas in the Disney animated classic "The Lion King."
In 1998 Goldberg gained a new audience as the "Center Square" on "Hollywood Squares." She was also the executive producer for the show and earned four Emmy awards. In 2003, Goldberg starred in the NBC comedy "Whoopi." The show only lasted for one season.
Goldberg's success in movies, television, Broadway and the music industry has earned her numerous awards. Goldberg is one of a few highly talented individuals who have earned a Grammy, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, an Emmy and a Tony. On her 48th birthday she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In 2007, she replaced Rosie O'Donnell as a moderator and co-host of "The View." Aside from her work on the show, Goldberg continues to make guest appearances, produce shows and perform.
Goldberg performed in the Broadway musical "Xanadu" in 2008, and in 2009 she produced the premier of "Sister Act: The Musical." She played Mother Superior in a 2010 limited-engagement run of the show in the West End.
She lent her voice to the 2008 and 2009 animated films "Snow Buddies," "Descendants" and "Toy Story 3" and played herself in the 2010 films "Teenage Paparazzo" and "New York Street Games," then again in the 2011 hit feature "The Muppets." She played God in 2011's "A Little Bit of Heaven."
Last year, Goldberg guest starred on the ABC sitcom "The Middle" and as Leaf #3 in David Carter's independent film "Indecisive."
Her schedule rarely leaves her time off to perform as a solo act, so her stop in Vegas is a special must-see event.
