(Scroll down for video) Being stuck on an airplane for many hours can be very stressful.

However, people who were stuck on a plane in Illinois, were lucky enough to have a popular band from Haiti, on their airplane.

Members of the Lakou Mizik group, who were on a tour in North America, were also stranded on the flight that was delayed at Chicago’s O’Hare airport.

The group decided to pass some of the time by entertaining the plane’s passengers and crew, and they did a great job of making it a happy atmosphere and making people less tense.

Members of the band, which is based in Port-au-Prince, took to Facebook to thank their new fans saying: “Dear Friends! We were so happy that this little video has touched the heart of so many people. We just want to say that we felt only love from all the passengers and staff on the plane.

“It was a difficult moment for all of us and we were proud to have our Haitian culture lift the spirits of everyone. Stay positive friends. Blessings to you all and to everyone out there.”
