Earlier this week, Julie Andrews was honored with the AFI Life Achievement Award where she was met with a special surprise.

The five actors still living among those who portrayed the Von Trapp children in The Sound of Music joined Andrews in the audience and led the crowd in a sing-along of the song "Do-Re-Mi." They looked lovingly at Andrews and blew her kisses, as she sang along, which was captured in a touching video.
