[On The View’s official website, they put “Jeffery” instead of “Jeremy”, so I’ve made the corrections.]

Today, the ladies celebrated Sherri’s birthday! It all kicked off with a great giveaway of tickets to a screening of Earth. FYI: For every ticket purchased during opening week, Disneynature will plant a tree in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest — which is considered the most endangered rain forest in the world.
The first guest was Jeremy Irons, an actor who’s captivated audiences on the big screen — and now on stage in Impressionism. After Jeremy told audiences about what you can expect to see in the play, we watched a clip of The Lion King — for which both Jeremy and our Whoopi provided voices. Jeremy has won an Academy Award, a Tony award, a Screen Actors Guild award, two Emmy awards, and two Golden Globes for his work! You can see Jeremy in Impressionism at the Schoenfeld Theater in New York City. Everyone went home with a pair of tickets for the show …
Since it was Sherri’s birthday, The View challenged the award-winning cake artists from Food Challenge Network Challenge: Last Cake Standing to make their best creations in her honor! The host of Last Cake Standing, Keegan Gerhard, was here to introduce us to the contestants — and to help chose the winner. All three contestants did a wonderful job, and then Sherri chose her favorite. Be sure to watch Last Cake Standing this Sunday night to see the crowning of the winner!
Sherri’s birthday wish came true when the Clarke Sisters stopped by to perform “Higher Ground” from the new gospel all-star tribute Oh Happy Day — as well as their classic hit “You Brought The Sunshine.” Everyone in our audience took home a copy of Oh Happy Day and the group’s latest CD, The Clark Sisters Live&One Last Time!
