Husband surprises wife with choir on 10th anniversary [Viral Video]
A British man, Carl Gilbertson, got a choir of students to serenade his wife with music, instead of buying her the traditional flowers or a box of chocolates.
With the help of his friend Stephanie, who is Head of Musical Theatre at Liverpool Media Academy, the doting husband had a group of students from the academy produce a lovely acapella version of Bruno Mars' ‘Just the Way You Are’, which got Laura so touched that she wept openly.
When questioned by the Liverpool Echo he said: "I was a lot more nervous on Saturday than I was on my wedding day."
In the three-minute clip, a touching message was first revealed on a screen which read,
“To celebrate his tenth anniversary Carl Gilbertson enlisted the help of students representing Liverpool Media Academy.”
The students then began their rendition which saw several people gather round to witness the spectacle.
The gesture touched the wife so much that she sobbed as the music rose around her and her caring husband handed her a single rose.
Stephanie added: "It was really emotional, it was a bit overwhelming and it was happy occasion celebrating the 10 years. I was just honoured and proud that I could be a part of it."'The flashmob acted as a declaration of love from Carl to his wife Laura who suffers from multiple sclerosis.'
"Happy Anniversary Laura," she concluded.
Sclerosis, according to Wikipedia, is the stiffening of a structure, usually caused by a replacement of the normal organ-specific tissue with connective tissue.
