It was one of those moments that you will never forget on Sunday at the 2015 Newport Folk Festival.

It was a Newport Folk Festival first when Christopher Paul Stelling proposed to his girlfriend, Julia Christgau, after a standing ovation at the end of their set on the Harbor Stage at Fort Adams State Park.

As you can see in the video, the moment brought Jay Sweet, Producer of the Newport Folk Festival, to tears.

Christopher Paul Stelling is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Brooklyn, New York.
