Earlier this month, a Montreal-based street performer was just about to close up his guitar case and head home when a fan approached.
The musician, Jason Deeh Pitre, had seen the man watching him from a nearby bench as he played, but only when the man started talking did he realize the man was Seal. According to Pitre’s blog, the British singer complimented his performance and then asked if he could sing with him.
Pitre said he suggested a Seal song, but “Kiss From A Rose” singer suggested “Stand By Me,” the 1961 Ben E. King classic.
One of the people watching from the crowd captured the impromptu performance on video.
