Diva/Mensch pair for August 3, 2022

EGOT #10 is Whoopi Goldberg. For the Diva I've chosen a scene from *Ghost* and for the Mensch a tap-dazzling number from *Thoroughly Modern Millie.* What's Menschy about that, you ask? Ms. Goldberg as a producer for that show...

Whoopi Goldberg (born 1955), an actress, comedian, and talk-show host received her fourth distinct award in 2002. Between 1985 and 2009, Goldberg received a total of 5 competitive awards.[20] Goldberg is the first African American winner, the first to win the Oscar as their second award, and the first to win two of their different awards in the same year (she won both her first Daytime Emmy and her Tony in 2002).
