A Train Proposal!

11 Nov

A train marriage proposal has become an online hit across the world after it was posted on Youtube! The video starts with a familiar scene of a packed commuter train before one passenger starts singing..Others join in one by one, until the 25-strong choir are all singing in harmony when bang on cue, 35-year-old Adam King, who sings as part of the Adam Street Singers, drops down on one knee and asks his girlfriend Lucy Rogers to marry him. She quickly accepts before bursting into tears.

Adam organised for the other singers in his group to board the train which he takes home with his girlfriend most nights and serenade her with a rendition of the Bill Withers song, Lovely Day, before he popped the question.

A great deal of thought and planning went into making the proposal perfect. The choir started work on project-train-proposal back in April! Romantic Adam also had to be careful that his girlfriend of 6 years didn’t spot any of his fellow choir singers on the train as many of them are mutual friends of the couple…

The inventive marriage proposal only happened on November 1st, but in the short space of time it’s been available to view online, it’s received half a million hits and sparked interest from TV channels around the world.

What a romantic gesture, it made me teary watching it! Here at Bodastory we wish all the best to the lovely couple 🙂
