The cast of the North American tour of Disney’s The Lion King made a special pit stop on their rounds.

Steven Taylor and Jelani Remy performed "Circle of Life" and "He Lives in You" to celebrate the winners of the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, a national challenge to promote healthy eating as part of the First Lady's "Let's Move!" Initiative. See highlights from the Broadway production.
