Some Feel Left Out, Singing Valentines Spread The Love

Posted: Updated:

Valentine's day is not all jewelry, chocolate, and flowers. For some, it can be difficult, especially those feeling left out. But a group of local singers raised their voices, and had many people feeling the love today.

As part of Great Plains Harmony, a local chorus, many men offered themselves as a singing valentine in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Stan Andrist is part of a quartet making deliveries. "We get tears, and we giggles, and we get laugher, and we get tears, and we get applause," he says, "Valentine's Day people's hearts and minds people are tuned to love, and music moves their soul, makes them happy."

While making deliveries they broke into song for people that could use one.

Jan Nelson, Stan's wife, got a singing got a visit by the quartet. "Truthfully, it's a little embarrassing," she admits, "But at the same time, I love it, I mean that much attention showered by four men, that's what I mean by embarrassing."

Stan's wife gets a song every year, and every year she's surprised, and love struck. "It's beautiful to be sung to," she says, "Really, well, okay now I am getting all teary about it." Jan is not jealous her husband is out warming other women's hearts, actually she is proud.

Ryan Brehmer is another member of the quartet, and if he looks familiar, he just might be your hairdresser.

"Barbershop is style of music that we sing," Ryan explains, "It's a four part harmony, but I am also the only barber in the barbershop chorus."

Ryan loves his day job, but he can't resist playing cupid. "Singing has almost become a lifestyle for me," he says, "Almost an obsession, and luckily, I have a very patient and loving wife."

The quartet sang for nearly thirty people today, including a few large groups. They charged $35 a stop, with the proceeds going to Great Plains Harmony.
