Music video celebrates Lion King Passover

Just in time for Passover, the Six13 a capella group have released a parody medley of songs from the original animated film “The Lion King.” To celebrate the Israelites freedom from slavery, the boys use the nothing but the human voice to create “A Lion King Passover.”

The group was inspired to create the video in response to the upcoming release of one of the most anticipated movies of the year, the live action remake of arguably the most popular film from the Disney Renaissance, “The Lion King.”

When the video opens with Hakuna Matata replaced by Ma Nishtanah Halailah Hazeh (What makes this night different?), it sounds so similar to the original that it might take you a moment to really hear the new words.

The group’s previous holiday music video, “Bohemian Chanukah,”  which paid homage to “Bohemian Rhapsody” while celebrating the festival of lights,  has amassed more than 4 million views.


From the guys who brought you “Bohemian Chanukah”: IT IS TIME… time for everyone’s favorite unleavened holiday, and of course, the traditional Six13 music video to go along with it. Here’s hoping this seder-y serenade from our pride of Jews helps to heighten your own Jewish pride. Please enjoy their most hakuna matata-ful production to date. CHAG SAMEACH!
