A surprise marriage proposal behind the scenes at " Good Morning America" today put a diamond ring on one woman's finger, thanks to her girlfriend and none other than this summer's hottest music duo, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Macklemore and Lewis were on hand in Central Park to perform live for the "GMA" Summer Concert Series. As nearly 5,000 of the duo's fans crowded the stage, one fan in particular stood out.

The fan, Val Dallas, held a sign that read "Can I Propose to My Girlfriend On Stage?" The sign was printed on rainbow-colored poster board, a nod to the couple's sexual orientation and to "Same Love," Macklemore and Lewis' hit song that is a tribute to marriage equality.

Kara Toomey, Dallas's girlfriend, did not see the sign her girlfriend was holding up behind her and suspected nothing.
