The Lion King is one of those movies that you will treasure.

Adults and kids alike will both be familiar with this blockbuster movie. The first one was released last 1994. Exactly 25 years later, in 2019, another The Lion King movie was released in theaters.

It is nice to see parents and their kids watching The Lion King. Both generations can relate to the story and even the soundtrack.

Walt Disney is known to produce high-quality movies and soundtracks.

These songs will remain in our hearts and in our memories. So do not be surprised if you see parents and kids singing the same movie soundtrack together. The song, ‘Circle of Life,’ may be one of the most iconic Walt Disney movie soundtracks to date.

This song can be heard in the movie’s first part.

The movie starts as all the animals in the jungle gather around to see the young prince – Simba. Then, we see the young lion cub as Rafiki holds him up for everyone to see.

The lyrics in Zulu, which was sung by Lebo M., goes like this:

‘Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba Sithi uhm ingonyama.

‘Nants ingonyama bagithi baba Sithi uhhmm ingonyama Ingonyama Siyo Nqoba Ingonyama Ingonyama nengw’ enamabala’

Ever wonder what this means?

‘Here comes a lion, father, Oh yes it’s a lion.

‘Here comes a lion, father, Oh yes it’s a lion. A lion we’re going to conquer, a lion, a lion and a leopard come to this open place.’

Now, you know what the beautiful Zulu lyrics mean.

Jordan Rabjohn posted his cover of the iconic song together with his stunning 14-year-old student, Precious.

The cover starts as we see Precious singing the Zulu part. Her singing voice was whole and powerful, but she did it so effortlessly.

It’s seldom to see and hear two voices sound so good together. It’s so good that you might even get goosebumps listening to their cover.

We love how Jordan, as a teacher, exposes his students to opportunities like this.

It gives them experience, practice, confidence, and the chance to be known. They were not disappointed because their song cover went viral.

“I wish Elton John hears this. He is surely going to get emotional at this cover. You guys knocked this rendition out of the park. Wish you both the absolute best in your journey, and “Thank you for the music,” said one of the comments.

We are also wondering if he did. If he did, we are pretty sure that he would appreciate it.

“It’s teachers like this that actually make an impact on students,” said another comment.

We couldn’t agree more! As teachers, we don’t just teach the students – we give them opportunities and help them thrive to achieve their dreams.
