Storms had canceled flights at La Guardia Airport. Among the stranded: the casts of the Broadway shows Aladdin and The Lion King. So the performers had a spontaneous sing-off in the terminal.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Travelers in New York were treated to a show on Sunday night that was way, way off-Broadway. Severe storms had forced the cancellation of flights at LaGuardia Airport, and among the stranded - the cast of the Broadway shows "Aladdin" and "The Lion King." So the performers had a spontaneous sing off in the terminal, giving fellow passengers a few moments of "Hakuna Matata."

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "HAKUNA MATATA")

UNIDENTIFIED SINGER: (Singing) It means no worries for the rest of your days.

MONTAGNE: It's MORNING EDITION.
