The cast of the Neil Diamond musical A Beautiful Noise has once again marked the legendary singer’s birthday in a big way. 

The singer turned 83 on Wednesday, January 24. Following a matinee of the show, the cast, including “American Idol” winner Nick Fradiani, Tony Award nominee Mark Jacoby and Amber Ardolino, led the audience in a rendition of “Happy Birthday,” with streamers and cake part of the celebration.

Diamond watched the whole thing via FaceTime and told the crowd, “I wish I was there with you.” He then stayed on the line as the cast led the audience in a rousing rendition of the Diamond classic “Sweet Caroline.”
