Cyndi Lauper Airport. Cyndi Lauper calmed a crowd of angry travelers who were stranded at the Buenos Aires Airport. The singer led passengers in a sing-along of her hit songs.
As tempers flared over flight cancellations and delays, Cyndi, 57, commandeered an airport microphone and belted out her hit song, Girls Just want To Have Fun.
Her quick-thinking was just what was needed to diffuse the situation as the angry crowd settled down and began to join in.
Cyndi even took to Twitter to fill her fans in on the situation. “Ok, so chow Argentina,” she tweeted. “At airport … So many delays. Wound up being announced, wound up singing two songs for airport. A first for me. Crazy day.”
The eccentric singer was in Argentina as part of her worldwide tour.
Cyndi became a star in 1983 with the release of the album She’s So Unusual. She went on to set a record as the first female singer to have four top-five singles released from one album.
Last year she released her latest CD, Memphis Blues, which ranked as Billboard’s #1 Blues Album of the Year.
The album also clinched a Grammy nomination in the Best Traditional Blues Album category.
Cyndi performed at the Grammy ceremony last month with folk singer Maria Muldaur and R&B stars Betty White, and the trio treated the audience to a blues tribute.
Here’s the video of her singing to passengers:
