[Video] The Statesmen’s Ben Mays Sings Proposal to Girlfriend, In A Cappella

Penn State senior Meghan Kozusko had a feeling that her now-fiancé, Ben Mays of The Statesmen, was going to propose to her during his “lovey” solo performance with the a cappella group. She just didn’t know when.

“I thought [the proposal] was coming after every song — I didn’t think it was going to last 10 minutes,” Meghan says.

Ben met Meghan during Spring Break 2012 through a Penn State Cru trip, and they have been inseparable ever since. “It didn’t take me long at all to know that I was going to propose,” he says.

Meghan eventually became one of The Statemen’s “biggest fans,” according to Ben, while he started hatching up an idea for a marriage proposal that became the 12-minute a cappella arrangement, “The Big Question.”

Ben brings Meghan on stage at the 3:42 mark of “The Big Question” but doesn’t actually begin his proposal until the 8:41 mark. The ring finally makes its appearance at the 9:29 mark. (And she says yes, of course.)

The Statesmen’s entire “The Big Question” performance leading up to the proposal is embedded below. It’s worth all 12 minutes:

NCAA Corruption Trial: Financial Advisor Testifies He Paid Former Penn State Football Player

Blazer testified that he was contacted by a Penn State assistant in 2009 who was the father of one of Blazer’s NFL clients. The assistant asked Blazer to pay a player $10,000 so that he would not enter the NFL Draft. Blazer complied, handing a $10,000 check to the father of that player, but the player ended up in the 2009 NFL Draft and was selected No. 11 overall.
