‘Aladdin’ Broadway Casts Honors Robin Williams With ‘Friend Like Me’ Singalong (Video)
  |  @   |  

Many tributes to Robin Williams have surface since the actor’s passing on Monday, one of which was a new beautiful image released by The Walt Disney Company of the Genie, the character that Williams so iconically voiced in Disney’s 1992 animated film Aladdin.

The film was adapted for the stage in 2011, and earlier this year it made its Broadway debut. At the end of yesterday’s performance at NYC’s New Amsterdam Theatre, the cast of Disney’s Aladdin musical paid tribute to Williams by leading the audience in a rousing singalong of the Genie’s signature song, “Friend Like Me.”

You can watch the fan-filmed video here below of the singalong, which was led by James Monroe Iglehart, who plays the Genie on stage. (UPDATE – Disney has released a video of the tribute as well, which is now here below.)
