For her birthday celebration on Friday the 13, Whoopi Goldberg requested Kool and the Gang to perform on the show. The band was glad to fulfill this wish. Whoopi introduced them as, “R & B trailbrazers who wrote the national anthem of party songs, “Celebration.” Kool and the Gang changed a few lyrics, “To Whoopi Goldberg and The View we are going to celebrate and party with you.”
