Sara Bareilles is once again doing what she does best: bringing us to the verge of tears, in the most heart-warming of ways.

The singer-songwriter, who's had a banner past year riding the success of her latest Grammy-nominated album, "The Blessed Unrest," has released her latest video, a moving interpretation of the album's second single, "I Choose You."

In the video, Sara helps two smitten suitors pop the question. The video begins with a slate that reads, "Sara Bareilles helped two couples propose for her new music video 'I Choose You.' Here's what happened…" It then shows a Facebook post from Sara that invites to her followers, "Let me help you plan the best engagement ever!"

First, we meet Matt and Chelsea from Los Angeles. "I have the most wonderful girl in the world," Matt says. We learn that Matt is going to propose by leading Chelsea down a memory lane of dioramas made of Post-It notes that tells the story of their relationship

Then, we meet Aly and Andrea from Denver. "Hey Sara, it's Aly," she says. "I need you to help me sing at our proposal." We learn that Aly is going to propose by painting posters that tell the couple's love story, surrounded by their friends and family.

We then follow Matt and Aly on the road to their respective proposals. For both couples, Sara shows up and surprises them during the moment where they asked their loved ones to marry them.

Needless to say, it's no great spoiler to reveal that both women say "YES!"

The video is sugary-sweet to its core, and the kind of stuff that will assure "I Choose You" is played at romantic marriage proposals and weddings on the "Today" show plaza for years to come.

In other words, it's just about perfect.
