This past April, Linda Perry proposed to girlfriend Sara Gilbert in one of the most romantic and touching engagement stories.
During a small picnic in the park, Perry and Gilbert are sitting and enjoying the day. Beside them is a street musician, who begins playing one of their favorite songs. Gilbert is surprised and touched by the coincidence- or so it seems. Perry decides to request “Love Song” by the Cure, another one of their favorites, and he starts playing along.
Soon, all the other picnickers in the park are pulling out string instruments and playing along, singing their favorite song. Perry then pulls out five t-shirts with the words “Will You Marry Me?” on each one. Gilbert is overwhelmed with emotion- but there’s more. Perry asks her to turn around, and she sees their friends and both their mothers behind them, cheering them on.
As she says yes, Perry pulls out one big surprise: John Waite. He comes out and starts playing “Missing You.”
Needless to say, the couple is happily engaged to be married.
