As a way to brighten spirits this Easter, the New Zealand Army Band joined forces online to give us one impressive rendition of Aladdin's 'Friend Like Me'.

Performing from their own isolation bubbles, 20 of the band's members - who have earned an international reputation as one of the finest marching bands in the world - got our toes tapping with the Disney jazz classic, which was originally sung by Robin Williams.

Posting the video to social media, the band wrote: "Our talented New Zealand Army Band are here to kick off your Easter weekend from within their bubbles at home.

"Today they are performing 'Friend Like Me'. We hope you enjoy! Stay home. Be kind."

This is one performance we definitely enjoyed!
