Speaking to attendees virtually from a large screen inside the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, Sinbad touched on the “great years” he had filming “A Different World” during his 77-episode run from 1987 to 1991.

“Those years were great years. Some of the best years of my life,” Sinbad shared. “Getting a chance to work with Debbie Allen, all the cast, it was so good.”

He recapped his surprise appearance in an Instagram post shared on Monday, March 4, where he thanked fans for all of the supportive messages he’s received in recent years. “It really is a different world out here!” he wrote in his caption.

“Man, that was so cool. A Different World going to Atlanta, going to Morehouse College and on campuses and getting a chance to be on Zoom and say something to the kids,” Sinbad said in his video message. “It’s wild that the kids even know who I am. That’s beautiful.”

“Thank you to everybody’s who’s been praying for me and saying good things and supporting me during this time in my life. It means a lot to me,” he added. “It means so much when I hear from y’all.”

The comedian concluded his message by telling fans to “expect to see more of me soon,” because “Miracles happen.”
