Sounds of Praise: I Will Follow Him (1992)

It's amazing what a change in lyrics will do to a song.

In "Sister Act", two pop songs of the past were given slight makeovers. Mary Wells' "My Guy" became "My God", and, in the finale, Little Peggy March's "I Will Follow Him" takes on a whole new meaning, sung by a church choir of nuns, led by the film's star, Whoopi Goldberg.

More than 25 years later, you'd think more Christian artists would've jumped at the chance to do the reworked "Follow", but I haven't heard any other renditions.
