Whoopi Goldberg - my 55th choice as a Disney Legend

Whoopi Goldberg was a surprise last minute announcement to the 2017 Disney Legends honor roll. I am keeping her on the list to track how many on the list eventually make it (only 3 as of 2017).

Whoopi Goldberg is a household name in our country. She has had several roles with Disney Studios. Here is her bio from the Disney Wiki:

Whoopi Goldberg is an American comedienne, actress, singer-songwriter, political activist, author, and talk show host who voiced Shenzi in the 1994 Disney animated film The Lion King and its 2004 sequel, The Lion King 1½. She also voiced Miss Mittens in Snow Buddies and Stretch in the 2010 Disney/Pixar film Toy Story 3. She made a cameo as herself in The Muppets. She also posed as the Genie in "Where Your Every Wish is Our Command" in the Disney Dream Portrait Series and voiced the White Rabbit's wife in the ABC's series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.
