Watch: This Is How Broadway’s ‘Aladdin’ Paid Homage To The Late Robin Williams

In honor of one of the Greatest Entertainers of all Time
"We're only going to do this once ..."

The cast of the new Broadway musical Aladdin paid homage to the late Robin Williams this week with a special, one-time-only audience sing-a-long performance of Friend Like Me, a song that Williams recorded first for the Disney animated feature film Aladdin. As you can see in the embed above, Tony Award-winner James Monroe Iglehart (who won his award for playing the Genie in the Broadway version of Aladdin) led the cast, crew and audience in a special rendition of Friend Like Me after their performance Tuesday night. This homage was really lovely, I think. Please enjoy.
