Matt Goss wants to help you say “I do.”
Formerly the lead singer of British rock band Bros, Matt is currently headlining at Caesars Palace’s Gossy Room in Las Vegas (yes, the venue was named after him), and last month released his EP I Do as well as his latest single: a joyful, jazzy ode to marriage proposals also called “I Do.” We recently caught up with Matt to discuss the inspiration behind the song and his advice for putting on toe-tapping wedding entertainment.
What was the inspiration behind “I Do?”
I’m a hopeless romantic. I started thinking – what’s the quintessential song for a man or woman to propose to? And I wanted to write a song that was utterly inclusive of all demographics. I thought, there isn’t a song you can definitively propose to. I was engaged before and I remember my knee gave out. It’s a beautifully submissive place to be, looking up at your lady, asking “Will you marry me?” I wanted to write a song that was powerful, authentic, glamorous, and romantic. I had a couple days at the piano and then I thought, “I’ve got the song.”
