Seals like to hang out at the wharfs and docks, where they can snag some free fish from local fisherman, and buskers like to hang out in the touristy parts near the wharfs too- so they can earn a few clams.
Now I'm not sure if the singer Seal likes to hang out by the wharfs like his namesake, but he does like to hang out with buskers if he likes the song they're singing.
Seal gives these buskers a whole lot more than a few clams- he gives them to sing a duet with the "Kiss From A Rose" guy, and in Manchester he gave a busker a chance to sing with him on stage.
But first he sang "Stand By Me" on the streets of Montreal with busker Jason Deeh Pitre:
A few days later Seal swam onto the NW shores of England for a performance in Manchester, where he stopped by Picadilly Gardens and met Poppy Waterman-Smith- the busker who would be his opening act that night.
