AT THE CORNER OF BROADWAY AND SOUL is a collection of 16 Broadway, Gospel and original R&B songs that were performed live in 2004 year at Joe's Pub. It is a soulful and empowering compilation of some of Billy's favorite songs and composers who inspired him from the time he was young to become the success he is today. It teaches you about taking chances and not taking "no" for an answer and more importantly lifts you up and helps you feel strong through his interpretation of the music.
Some of the songs on the album include "Heaven" by Rick Ian Gordon, "Why I Sing," by Kirk Franklin, "Let it Sing," by Janine Tesori, "Awaiting You," by Adam Guettel, "King of the World," by Jason Robert Brown, "Sunday" and "Last Midnight" by Steven Sondheim, and a six original tracks written by Billy himself.

Billy seems himself on the bridge between Broadway and Soul. He wanted to produce an album that allowed him to express himself fully in both worlds so this CD is divided into two parts each devoted to a single genre. His debut CD was called "Untitled" and released on A&M records.
