BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA (AP) - Don’t think being stranded in an airport can’t be fun.

Singer Cyndi Lauper wants travelers to know that breaking out into song can raise one’s spirits even when flights are canceled and passengers are peeved.

The pop star helped cheer stranded crowds at Buenos Aires’ Jorge Newbery Airport recently by grabbing a public-address microphone and singing her 1983 hit song “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” as nearby travelers and airport workers sang along. A video of the spontaneous performance was recorded Friday, and has attracted thousands of views since it was posted to the Internet.

Lauper is currently on tour. She was traveling from Argentina to Santiago, Chile, when several flights were delayed due to an extended holiday weekend.
