Seal also set up a one to one Facebook live interview with Sherika back at his hotel to ensure Sherika was given a proper introduction to his fans.

Seal was left so impressed by Sherika’s performance and dedication to being an Artist he invited her to open his show at Greenwich Music Time to 5000 people. They also performed another duet together of Ben. E King’s ‘Stand by Me’ to express his support even further Seal also had Sherika open his show in Brussels at Cirque Royal. http://www.itv.com/news/london/update/2016-07-06/busker-appears-on-stage-with-seal-in-greenwich/ Sherika and Seal are still in contact with one another while Seal finishes his world tour…
