If you've always wanted to watch the Lion King, you may not even have to book tickets. You just need to be in the right place at the right time.

Travellers on a New York subway were given an impromptu, a cappella performance of The Circle of Life by the Broadway cast of The Lion King.

Finally, someone managed to bring a smile to the faces of cranky New Yorkers on the subway. (Well, some of them.)

The serenade on July 28 resulted in cheers from the majority of the subway car, who inevitably reverted to avoiding all eye contact and playing Candy Crush shortly after the singing stopped.

Earlier this year, passengers on a flight from Sydney to Brisbane were treated to a surprise from the cast as well.
