TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Broadway cast of 'The Lion King' surprised New York City subway riders with a rendition of 'The Circle of Life,' and it's gone viral. 

The cast got on the subway car appearing to be normal passengers, but as soon as the car starts moving, a woman reading a book starts singing the opening lines to the iconic Disney song. 

On WTXL Sunrise, Kellie Bartoli and Max Tsaparis check out this 'Hot on the Web' video, and they attempted a bit of a rendition of the musical number.

This is not the first time that a cast of this successful stage musical has surprised a group of fellow passengers. Back in April, the Australian cast of the show delighted passengers with the tune before taking off on their flight to Sydney.
