MARTINSVILLE (WSLS10) - Instead of the traditional flowers and chocolates this Valentine's Day, how about sweeping your sweetheart off their feet with a song?

A group of singers at Patrick Henry Community College are once again offering singing telegrams.

A handful of members of the "Patriot Players" are taking requests from people who want them to come and sing for their significant others. Each request costs $25, which the coordinator says will help the group become more sustainable.

"For $25," said Patriot Players Artistic Director Devin Pendleton, "you get a song of roughly one minute and a rose with a card sent from your sweetheart. We'll try to accommodate a song, so if there's a special song that means something to your valentine, or we'll pick one for you."

To request a singing telegram, e-mail dpendleton@patrickhenry.edu or call (276) 638-8777 ext.0460.
