Robin Williams has been getting a lot of fond and touching tributes from fans and friends since his death this Monday, August 11th. But one of the most creative comes from the "Aladdin" cast on Broadway.

Williams played Genie in the immensely popular 1992 Disney animated film "Aladdin," so it's only appropriate that the Broadway cast would send a little love towards Williams' way. James Monroe Iglehart, who plays Williams' former role on stage, encourages the audience to sing along to "Friend Like Me," and the results are truly touching.

Wednesday night, the Broadway marquees also dimmed their lights in Williams' memory.
