NY cop to sing with the Pops

Rodriguez


Daniel Rodriguez, New York's "singing policeman," was on duty on Sept. 11, 2001, the day the city's twin towers were destroyed by terrorists. A member of the police department since 1995, Rodriguez was also part of an elite group of New York's finest that sang for official functions.

Just 12 days after the attacks, he sang the National Anthem at a memorial for the victims at Yankee Stadium, and who should be in the audience but superstar tenor Placido Domingo. A star was born.

Rodriguez will make his debut with Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops in May 2004.
