Along with the San Diego Chapter of Operation Home Front, Pacific Coast Harmony a local chapter of an international barbershop singers group is offering military men and women the chance to send a singing telegram to their loved ones while theyre overseas.
The musical messages include a card, candy, balloons, and two songs, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, and Heart of My Heart performed by a traditional, tuxedo-clad barbershop quartet.
The surprise serenades happen everywhere from schools and hair salons to government buildings and courthouses, but theres one common theme to the musical messages.
Singing spokesperson Jerry Kent says, Its usually pretty heart wrenching. We get choked up!
And while a military mans homebound honey might be embarrassed at the singing surprise, Kent says, People love it. Weve never been told, Dont ever do that again!
