NEW YORK, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- New Yorkers riding the "A" train on June 28 were given a special surprise when the Broadway cast of The Lion King broke into an acapella rendition of "Circle of Life."

Thirty members of the cast were taking a break between a matinee and evening performance when they boarded the subway car wand began to sing.

This is not the first time it has happened. In April, the Australian cast treated their flight to an impromptu performance of the same song.

The Lion King is the highest-grossing Broadway production in history and has eight performances a week at The Minskoff Theater in Times Square.
