It seems that concerts have become a favorite venue for guys to spill their “Will you marry me?” question to their loved ones. The crowd, the cheers and the public display of love all sums up to a momentous event the elated couple would never forget.
The Saturday night concert of the British boyband A1 was made more memorable by a surprise proposal of Mark Acallar to girlfriend Angela Cacho.
In a video posted by SM Mall of Asia Arena, Mark could be heard saying, “The past year that we have been together is the happiest I’ve ever been. And I’ve never been so sure with anything. Well, I know I’m sure that you’re my forever love. So will you make me the happiest man tonight?”
And Angela said “Yes”!
A1 confirmed on their Instagram account, “She said YES!! We had some truly magical moments on stage tonite, but none more than this beautiful proposal! Everyone was choked up, there were tears, there were cheers as @markacallar got down on one knee to propose to his wonderful girlfriend and wife to be Angela.”
The ecstatic moment was followed by the couple dancing to A1’s song “Heaven by Your Side.” and ended with a couple photo flashed on the screen.
One A1 member revealed that this is the first time a proposal has happened on the A1 stage. That was epic!
The boyband, together with O-Town, performed in the Philippines for Playback Music Festival.
Netizens poured their reactions on social media.
