Members of the Australian cast of The Lion King performed Circle of Life on a plane earlier this week – watch a video below.

The cast members stunned passengers with the surprise rendition of the Elton John-penned song before the Virgin Australia flight from Sydney to Brisbane took off.

Posting the video on YouTube, Disney on Broadway wrote: “After an amazing day at THE LION KING Brisbane season launch announcement, members of our Australian cast felt so elated they decided to sing the ‘Circle of Life’ prior to take off on their flight back to Sydney!”

The video has since gone viral and racked up over 7.5 million views.
