Thousands of New Yorkers Ride the Subway Every Day. It’s Unlikely Any of Them Could Have Anticipated This.

The cast of “The Lion King on Broadway” delivered a “little surprise” to a group of lucky New Yorkers late last month, boarding the subway and singing an a cappella version of “Circle Of Life.”

According to Broadway singer Jamal Lee Harris, the cast took a break between shows on June 28 to take over a subway car and belt out the tune.

Footage was later posted online Tuesday and has since amassed more than a quarter-of-a-million views.

“Very moving, made me cry,” one individual commented.

“Amazing,” echoed another. “I got goosebumps all over my body.”

Earlier this year, the cast surprised passengers on a plane, signing the hit song as they returned to Australia.
