Aretha Franklin finds next opera Idol while eating lunch

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Aretha Franklin is in New York on her annual holiday. And on Tuesday she got serenaded at lunch. The Queen of Soul stopped in to Brasserie Ruhlmann in Rockefeller Center with friends for lunch and got a surprise.

“I had a wonderful waiter,” she told me. “He said, You know, I sing the same songs you do.” He didn’t mean “Respect” but Puccini’s “Nessum Dorma.” I told him to show me, but sing low. Instead he really opened up. And he’s very talented. You should get over there immediately.”
The waiter in question was Don Catrone.
