A video has been posted online showing the moment stars of Broadway musicals The Lion King and Aladdin decided to take part in an impromptu sing-off at a New York airport.

The footage, posted to YouTube by user Julie L, shows the cast of The Lion King deliver a rendition of opening song Circle of Life for stranded travellers at LaGuardia Airport. The cast of Aladdin, who were also stranded at the airport after weather problems had delayed several flights, then joined in by improvising a rap and singing Arabian Nights.
