Founded in 1994 by Tony nominee McElroy, the Grammy-nominated BIV is a gospel choir ensemble made up of actors and musicians from a host of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. Among its members is Goldsberry, who is featured in the Kickstarter video for the group's second holiday album "Great Joy II: Around the World." View it here.

"There's something that we as a group do when we come together, with gospel that I think is a revelation in this community," says Goldsberry in the video. "That's not all that this group does. This group is called to bring a level of excellence in terms of the arrangements and the performing and just the spirit with which we handle the material and the spirit with which we share it."

BIV will present a special holiday concert Dec. 14 at Harlem's First Corinthian Baptist Church. For information and to purchase tickets visit BroadwayInspirationalVoices.org.
