ORLANDO — A driver posted a video on Facebook describing how he escaped from getting a traffic ticket.

“The craziest thing just happened to me, I’m being pulled over by the police officers. I’m going to pray my way out of this,” said T.J. Bristol.

But he didn’t have to pray.  He just had to sing.

“She asked me what do I do when I gave her my license because I was dressed up, and I told her I’m a singer, I’m a gospel artist, and she was like well sing me a song.”

So Bristol got out of the car, snapped his phone onto a selfie stick and recorded him serenading the female officer.

He sang, “You are so Beautiful to Me.”

“And if it was three  men, I would have said, it’s raining men! Hallelujah!”

It all worked out for the best because he didn’t get a ticket.
