LONDON (WTHR) - Some cabbies turn on the radio or even their own iPod to provide some entertainment during your ride. One driver we came across in London while covering the royal wedding, though, provides his own entertainment.

Aiden Kent, or the "Singing Cabbie" as he's known, croons old time hits himself while dressed in a full tux and offering his riders a drink from a bottle of champagne.

He's not just another attraction for tourists. He has a green badge, which means he's undergone a thorough exam and is certified to pick up fares anywhere in central London and the surrounding burroughs.
