Proposal Flashmob

What would happen is Rays fiancee would be sitting with a few friends on a patio in a restaurant in Yorkville waiting for Ray to show up. Then a musician (Oliver) with a ukulele “randomly” walks past and asks if he can sing a song for them. When they say yes, he starts to sing. At first it just seems like a simple song but as the song progresses there are personal things in it that only Ray could know about.

Then just as it dawns on her that this might be more then just a simple busker, a large group of musicians and singers appear and sing the rest of the song.

Once they reach the end, the crowd parts and Ray emerges and gets down on one knee and proposes. Then she says “yes”, and *poof* everyone disappears and the happy couple live happily ever after.
