LARA CERRI | Times
Priscilla Reed, 48, of St. Petersburg sings karaoke as Jacquelyn Brown and her dog, Remi Martin, listen in Gulfport on Tuesday. "I found it hard to get hired to sing so I just sing here to whoever listens," said Reed, who entertains every Tuesday afternoon in breezy Pavilion 6 on the Gulfport waterfront. Reed, who performs under the name Cillawette, sings rock, soul and country. "If it is a good song, I will sing it," she said. Brown, a retired nurse who now works part time as a crossing guard, is a regular fan. "Seeing how happy people are," Reed said, "that makes me happy."
