NEW YORK (PIX11) –– Who knew the New York City subway system could inspire romance?

A man proposed to his girlfriend aboard a ‘M’ train Friday morning — using a choir.

Roberts Waters got down on one knee in front of their family and friends (and dozens of strangers) to propose to girlfriend Carley Frese.

The Late Show Gospel Choir sang the couple’s favorite song, “Lovin’ In My Baby’s Eyes.”

Waters told Gothamist, “I love the idea that the subway is like the beating heart of New York City.” Waters says his now-fiance hates the subway, so he wanted to make it a special place for her.
