Flash Mob Proposal
We rehearse weekly for our Christmas and summer concerts but also get fun opportunities for other performances. Last year some members from our Hamilton group were invited flash mob a marriage proposal on the Glasgow to Hamilton train! SoundRoutes Singers took everyone by surprise and with the whole train carriage joining in – the atmosphere was electric! Stuart got down on one knee to pop the question and how could Michelle say no?! Footage went viral with almost one million views.
Congratulations Stuart and Michelle
