If you feel that romance is dead in this world, watch saxophonist extraordinaire Eli Bennett surprise girlfriend Rosemary Siemens with a proposal:


We got to know Eli when my spouse was executive director of the Hnatyshyn Foundation and Eli was an award winner.

Now he’s doubled up on that…

postscript 2: here’s what Rosemary wrote about the experience on her facebook page:

The day my best friend Eli Bennett flew to Winnipeg,  rented a car, then drove 2 hours to my show, arranged with my dear friend Grace in my band to interrupt me before the last song in the first half that we had a special surprise guest….. and then this happened…
in front hundreds of my friends, family and my parents in my hometown show at Buhler Hall of my Rosemary & The Sweet Sound Revival – Have a Little Faith Tour:)  
I was serenaded with ‘I Can’t Help Falling In Love’ by the man of my dreams and asked the most important question of my life ❤
I was so shocked and happy, it was totally perfect!!! Couldn’t have been a more amazing way to start this journey together with my soul mate:) So thankful to God for bringing us together!!
Love that I can share this moment with all of you!!! He literally was with us for 20  minutes and had to run back to Winnipeg for his gig but it was the best 20 minutes ever!
#ISaidYes ❤❤❤
