An Australian couple were given an unforgettable engagement as they were given a private performance by the singer-songwriter Guy Sebastien. Nathan planned to propose to his girlfriend, Steph, on a boat next to the Sydney Opera House. The couple had been in a relationship for six years, and Nathan wanted to make it as unique as possible. He contacted Australian radio station KIIS to see if they could arrange for Guy Sebastien to make it the engagement of Steph’s dreams.
Nathan got down on one knee and asked the big question. Thankfully for Nathan and KIIS listeners, Steph said yes, and the two kissed in delight. While Steph was admiring her engagement ring, she heard a piano playing and then the familiar voice of her favourite singer, Guy Sebastien. Looking around in confusion, she caught sight of the Australian megastar as he came up the boat’s steps. Steph gasped and clutched her chest, mouthing, “What!?” in astonishment.
After taking a few moments to get over her shock, Steph was then able to enjoy the moment and dance along. Nathan popped open a bottle of champagne to celebrate the joyous occasion. During the vocal break, Sebastien added humour by commenting, “This boat is getting rocky. I like it!” He congratulated the starstruck couple before commending them on their choice of venue by saying, “There’s no more beautiful harbour to do it than this.”
Guy Sebastien found fame when he won the first Australian Idol in 2003. Born in Malaysia and raised in Australia, Sebastien cemented his success with his hit song “Battle Scars”, released in 2012. He has sold over five million singles and albums in Australia, and has dazzled audiences all over the world, including performances for Queen Elizabeth II, Oprah Winfrey and Pope Benedict XVI.

It comes as Sebastian last month admitted to a break up with his wife Jules.
The Voice Australia coach revealed on Sunrise he and Jules were dating in 2000 but she briefly dumped him before his appearance on Australian Idol.
‘I didn’t think we would get back together,’ the singer told co-hosts Natalie Barr and Matt Shirvington.
‘I was 18 when we first got together and I think I was 21 (when we broke up) and she kind of broke my heart.’
‘She broke up with me and then Idol happened and I moved to Sydney and I didn’t think we’d get back together, I wasn’t sure.’
It comes after Guy revealed his secret split from his wife Jules
Guy explained he eventually realised that he and Jules had ‘so much history and she always loved him’.
Guy married Jules in late 2007 after eight years of dating, and they share two sons, Hudson, 11, and Archie, nine.
Last month, the singer revealed his wife was hesitant to have children when they first started dating.
He spoke to Who Australia about Jules’ fear of motherhood.
‘Jules was a tomboy growing up. You know how some women growing up are kind of like, “I just can’t wait to be a mum?”,’ began the Australian Idol star.

‘Whereas Jules was petrified of it. I never heard the words “I want to be mum” ever come out of her mouth because I think she was scared that she wouldn’t do a good job,’ he said.
Despite her reservations, Guy claims Jules has naturally taken to motherhood with the couple’s two sons.
‘The thing that I’ve seen her do unbelievably well is be a mum,’ the pop star said, praising his wife.
‘I think you have a newfound love for your partner when you see them in a role like that – nurturing and looking after the people that matter the most to you. She’s killing it!’ he added.
