TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A local barbershop quartet made its rounds singing songs of love this Valentine's Day.

It was a greeting Carl Rasmussen didn't expect at work. The barbershop quartet made a surprise Valentine's Day visit at Rasmussen's law firm.

After belting out, "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" in front of the entire office, singers announced two specific instructions they were given.

"One is to tell you this is from your Tootsie Wootsie," group member, Robbie Brunger, told Rasmussen. The second instruction was to sing their "most mushy and romantic song."

The mushiness leaving Rasmussen a bit bashful. "Yes, very much," He said when asked if he was surprised.

His co-workers got a kick out of the show.

"It was great!"

"It's not often you see him speechless. That's very nice to see. They did a great job."

The group walked through downtown Tallahassee to surprise patrons at Metro Deli. They sang two songs as customers ordered and enjoyed their lunch.

"I think it's amazing. I think they did a great, fantastic job. Good job," said one of the deli employees.

"They were really good. We enjoyed it. It was a nice surprise. It was really cool to see them," said Jason Thompson, a customer at the deli.

The singing-gram had Claire Gallo blushing in front of her fourth grade students at Kate Sullivan. The group surprised her Wednesday morning.

"I'm a little speechless but I loved the surprise. What a very wonderful surprise. So, Happy Valentine's Day!" Gallo said.

There's nothing like spreading Valentine's joy, especially when it's in four-part harmony.

In-A-Chord sings at different events, but members say going around town on Valentine's Day is the most fun.
