Aretha Franklin serenades her way out of parking ticket

Friday, August 12, 2011

Aretha Franklin put her powerful voice to use this week to get out of a traffic ticket.

The Queen of Soul was having dinner at a New York City restaurant when she saw a meter maid getting ready to ticket her car.

She hurried out and was able to convince the officer not to ticket the car in exchange for a serenade.

Franklin also autographed an envelope for the officer.
