(ABC 6 Nwes) - They call themselves the Holly Trolley. It's an all girls acapella choir that spreads holiday cheer to those in need. Sunday night, the Bella Voce Choir made a special trip to the Double Tree Hotel in Rochester. They sang Christmas carols to two Mayo Clinic patients. Rachel Healy is one of those patients. She's been receiving treatment at Mayo for more than 30 years.
"I never thought such a beautiful experience could happen for me but it has", said Healy. "The beautiful children were so full of care and love, you could feel that in their presence when they walked through the door."

"Knowing that this very well indeed may be her last Christmas and the fact that the girls can use their voices to impact and change someone's path is pretty powerful", said Choir Director Shelly Winemiller.

The choir is made up of girls grades 6 through 12.
