John Dann and Claudia Rogers made posters for the July 5 Paul McCartney concert hoping to catch the singer's eye.

They did.

During his show in Albany, N.Y., over the weekend, the singer noticed that Rogers was holding up a piece of paper that read, "He won't marry me 'till he meets you."

Dann's read, "I have the ring & I'm 64."

"We should see if she will say yes today," McCartney, 72, remarked to the crowd, as he called the couple both to the stage.

After Dann sang a few lines of the Beatles song, "When I'm Sixty-Four," he got down on one knee.

Of course, his bride-to-be said "yes."

"The whole crowd was so supportive," Dann told the Democrat & Chronicle newspaper. "It was a magical night for a lot of people, not just us."
