VIDEO: Broadway Inspirational Voices Sing ‘A Whole New World’
Broadway Inspirational Voices released a video via YouTube earlier this week where according to Playbill.com, they, “… put a new spin on “A Whole New World” from Aladdin. Arranged by Grammy and Tony nominee Michael McElroy, the Alan Menken and Tim Rice number gets a Latin and gospel infusion in the music video above.”
Broadway.com explained, “Arranged by Grammy™ award-nominated and Tony™ Honoree Michael McElroy, and orchestrated in collaboration with Isaac Harlan, the entire BIV choir shows a portrait of their world – one of diversity and inclusion. Videographer Nate Wind weaves through the wonderfully varied faces of BIV, and offers closeups that reveal the immense hearts behind the glorious voices.”
