Eagle Eye Promposal Contest: Singing his Way to Prom

On the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day, Hunter Jackson decided to ask his girl, Amy Long, to Prom by singing her an original song. It took Hunter four hours to prepare this song, and after he was done, he sang it in class to Amy. Amy sat in awe as Hunter sang to her. After he was done, she happily said yes to this romantic promposal.
