Watch what happened after the show!
After the show, Donny and Marie present Oprah with her very own family tree, going back four generations. "Just as a little reminder of where we come from, because it's so important to know our origins and the people who sacrificed so much for us to be where we are here today," Donny says.
When Oprah was in the fourth grade in Nashville, Tennessee, her teacher, Mrs. Mary Duncan, made a lifelong impression. In 1989, Oprah got a big surprise
when Mrs. Duncan visited her on the show!
Almost 20 years later, Mrs. Duncan returns to the Oprah Show
to visit her famous former student and talk to her after the show. "The fourth grade was the beginning of learning for me. You instilled such a love of learning for me," Oprah says.
"This is such a blessing to be with you," Mrs. Duncan says. "I'm so proud of you."
