Subway jam session turns into marriage proposal

By: Simone Castello

There are very few things I love in this life more than a good marriage proposal story. I'm not talking about over-the-top proposals -- the ones that cost a lot of money and are so elaborate that it's pretty obvious they're some sort of gimmick. What I love are the proposal stories with heart and substance. They're the making of stories that will be passed down through the generations, and no matter how often these stories are shared, they'll always leave everyone who hears them feeling warm and fuzzy, with butterflies fluttering in their tummies. Don't roll your eyes at me, yet! Check out this proposal story coming out of New York City. New Yorkers are no strangers to random buskers on their train rides around the city. From solo artists to a-capella performances, there are all sorts who make for animated and entertaining subway rides. One soon-to-be bride (you'll see her standing on the left in the video, against the door) watched a supposedly random busking performance on the subway with her partner (standing next to her) as they took what she thought was another normal train ride. What she didn't realize was that the busking performance was all part of her now-fiance's elaborate plan to propose to her. While this is a snippet of how it went down (the whole video is about six minutes long), it's absolutely worth watching. The busking duo performs some contemporary hits like Rihanna's "We Found Love" and Bruno Mars' "Heaven," all with a guitar and violin combination. Here's the video. Trust me, you'll want to watch the entire thing. Even the riders on the subway car didn't see this one coming! [HTML1] Do you have a good proposal story? Share it with us in the comments section.
