Want a unique Valentines Day gift for your loved one? Send them a ‘Singing Telegram’.
“We want to bring joy to people and it’s hilarious seeing people’s reactions when we turn up singing,” said organizer Melissa Wickersham.
Wickersham said it all started three years ago when they visited her 97-year-old grandmother singing on Valentine’s Day.
“We love it when we surprise the men at work singing because it is hysterical,” said Wickersham. “Many wives get a kick out of it and we’ve also had bosses who send us to sign to their staff.”
A singing telegram costs $25 and can be delivered anywhere in Paris and most of Lamar County.
“Those who order can pick from five songs and will also get a certificate of love and a carnation.”
Those songs include Head Over Boots by Jon Pardi, You Are My Sunshine by Johhny Cash, Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley, A Thousand Years by Christina Perri or Perfect by Ed Sheeran.
“We start at 8:15 a.m. on Valentine’s Day and will deliver through 4:30 p.m.”
