Amazingly, the performer had caught the attention of the double Ivor Novello Award-winner Seal. The hit-maker had been wandering around Manchester ahead of his sold-out gig at the city’s Bridgewater Hall. And when he stumbled across Waterman-Smith, he liked what he was hearing.
In fact, the star was so impressed that, after introducing himself, he joined Waterman-Smith for an impromptu performance. And he filmed the entire thing for his fans on Facebook Live. The pair played a series of Bob Marley hits as well as Seal’s song “Kiss from a Rose” for the growing crowd.
