Broadway's 'Aladdin' Honors Robin Williams

The "Aladdin" Broadway cast at New Amsterdam Theatre paid tribute to Robin Williams Tuesday when James Monroe Iglehart, who plays Genie, led the audience in a sing-along of "Friend Like Me."

"Yesterday we lost one of the greatest entertainers of all time," Iglehart said to the audience. "We want to give our hearts and our thoughts and our prayers to his family because he's a husband and father first, entertainer second. But for tonight, I want us to sing a little bit of 'Friend Like Me' before we go."

A video of the tribute was posted to the "Aladdin" Facebook page, and it has received more than 87,000 likes.

A YouTube video was posted Aug. 13 and has more than 61,000 page views.
