Washington, Jan 21 (ANI): Singing legend Aretha Franklin has expressed her desire to be one of the U.S. President Barack Obama’’s top advisors.

The 66-year-old, a huge supporter of Americas new leader, pitched for the prestigious post in an open letter to Obama.

You should put me on your advisory team. But I am serious if you are interested,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying in the letter.

And her first advice concerns the presidential diet.

“Eat plenty of good soul food, Indian, Hawaiian, Chinese, gourmet etc. Because as Dr. (Martin Luther) King used to say, ”After a good soul meal, I could go around the world on a meal like that,”” she said. (ANI)
