Dancing and doo-wop for Valentine's Day

The St. Petersburg Sunshine Center held its annual Valentine Dance on Tuesday. Louis Rivera, 74, and girlfriend Nancy Stuart, 77, both of South Pasadena, and Barbara Culp, 79, of St. Petersburg and Angel Lopez, 82, of Tampa stopped in to sway to St. Petersburg DJ and singer Alex "H2O" Waters' rendition of Unchained Melody. Waters, 59, says he has always dreamed of performing to "bring back memories and be part of someone's life. Maybe they're lonely or their loved one has passed away and the kids aren't around, but Motown and that old doo-wop music … it gives them hope."
