    While out on tour this summer the Goo Goo Dolls helped one special fan propose to his girlfriend. Watching the band perform their latest single "Come To Me" on tour inspired Brook to plan this unforgettable moment. Brook shares his story below:

    Britnee and I saw the Goo Goo Dolls back in July at the Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, CA. At that time, I had only begun brainstorming ways I could propose to her, many of the ideas didn't really excite me enough to move forward with it. But that night, while watching the Goo play their classics, something unexpected happened. The Goo Goo Dolls played "Come To Me", a song Britnee and I weren't familiar with yet. As the lyrics flashed on stage while they performed this enchanting song, I think it resonated with both of us. I remember Britnee saying with a tear in her eye "This needs to be the song we use for the first dance at our wedding". And it was at that moment, halfway through the song, that it all came together. I knew I needed to use this song as part of my proposal, and what better way to utilize it than to have our closest friends and family in it holding signs with these heartfelt lyrics. Partway through filming, I thought to myself "how cool would it be to have the Goo Goo Dolls themselves in the video, she'd flip". And that's when I reached out to the GGD camp who helped make this dream proposal come true. "Come To Me" will forever be our favorite song, and it's our hope that it will serve as a favorite for millions of others.
