Magical Moments ===========================

The small town we lived in held a Jazz Festival annually and my barbershop quartet would stroll around town, singing in stores, on corners, and on temporarily empty stages.

We found a closed store with a deep entry and started singing. In moments we couldn’t see the street through the crowd. Then a couple showed up, holding hands and obviously much in love. The woman asked if we would sing them a love song and we agreed. She instantly came and stood in the middle of the quartet as the song then became her love song to her beau.
