Well I for one am glad, but sorry it happened to someone else! I took mine in to the dealer more than a year ago for the same thing!! I told them, it's at high speeds, and if I even tap the steering wheel to the right, or change lanes to the right. They said they couldn't reproduce the sound, so nothing happened.
It's still doing it. Always once the car is plenty warmed up, and always at speeds over 60mph, and always when the steering wheel gets moved the slightest bit to the right.

Note: Study the charts in the Links to decide what perimiters are important to you...
Note: See Pic of my front wheel with 20,000 miles on it, and see that the pads are 1/2 worn out with average use... These OEM pads will be replace at 35,000 or 40,000 depending on worn out condition... I take a close look at both pads at every 5,000 mile wheel rotation. Easily looked at when the wheels are off...

As I mentioned, many years ago. When the pads, start to heat up the the metal in them, will start to sing. Pads slightly rub on the rotors, will driving. It sounds like a record player, playing birds songs. Just replace them with some good ceramic ones. With the milage of your car, you might want to invest in some new rotors too.
