CHICAGO – A man found a uniquely sweet way to propose to his girlfriend over the weekend at a train station in Chicago.

A video uploaded to YouTube Saturday shows a couple walking along Ogilvie Transportation Center in Chicago when the boyfriend stops to tell his significant other he wants to sing her a song. A group of a capella performers is seen singing behind him.

“What’s going on?” the woman, Katie Neppel, can be heard saying. The boyfriend, Robby Goodman, suddenly joins in on the song as the men sing, “flash mob-style,” to the unsuspecting Neppel.

As the song goes on, many bystanders are seen gathering around the couple with cameras and phones. It turns out the majority of them were the couple’s family and friends — Goodman had invited them in advance!

Goodman serenades her for about 4 minutes, and it all culminates and the end with him getting down on one knee.

“She said YES!!” remarked the YouTube user, Daniel Muskovitz.

According to the video, the proposal took place on Friday.

“Congratulations Katie and Robbie!” the edited video reads at the end. “Wishing you health, happiness and love, always. Mazel Tov!”

Watch the proposal in the video above.
