VIDEO: Broadway Veteran Lynnie Godfrey Performs With Children's Chorus

When stage and screen vet Lynnie Godfrey learned about how little music education was available in Allentown, PA, she assembled a children's chorus.

The chorus, funded partially by a grant from the Allentown school district, is free of charge for members.

It is made up of 15 children between the ages of 6 and 12.

Godfrey and her chorus stopped by 69 News to perform a holiday number recently. Check out the video below!
