What’s sweeter than the gift of song? As bride and groom Sarah and Adrian Buccheri found out, not much.
When Adrian’s brother, Daniel Buccheri, got up to deliver his best man speech at the happy couple’s wedding, it certainly wasn’t they were expecting. Instead, Daniel, a singer and songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, sang his speech in an amazing mashup of pop songs with lyrics specific to the newlyweds.
As Daniel transitioned from renditions of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” into R. Kelly’s “Ignition,” Elton John’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” and beyond, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, or on Facebook for that matter, where more than 1.2 million people have watched the epic video.
“I was so humbled to be my brother's best man, so I decided to prepare a little surprise for him and his new wife on their wedding day,” Daniel wrote on his original Facebook post.
Once the video had reached 1 million views, the best man was so humbled by everyone’s overwhelmingly positive response that he followed up with another note for his newfound friends.
“I've always said that all I want to do with my music is to make people feel something,” he began. “To know how many people worldwide have gotten emotional and been touched by this video is a feeling so deep in my heart. We live in such a negative world where we are continually forced to hold ourselves back from achieving greatness and if I can shine a light with the gift I've been given, then that's what I'm going to do.”
Most importantly, Daniel added, “Spread the love.”
