You could definitely feel the love Sunday night at the Minskoff Theatre in New York City. As The Lion King celebrated 20 years on Broadway, Elton John took the stage after the musical’s curtain call Sunday for a surprise performance.

Elton, who co-wrote the music for the Disney animated film and the stage adaptation, sat at the piano and sang his song “Circle of Life.” He was accompanied by The Lion King‘s cast.

The musical production first debuted on Broadway in November 1997. The story is getting a reboot on the big screen with a live-action film directed by Jon Favreau. It was announced last week that Beyonce would be joining the cast as Nala.
