• Porche and Tyshone are both students at Southern Illinois University and met in the school’s gospel choir. When finances forced Tyshone to temporarily withdraw, Porche provided moral support and soon their friendship became a romance. Although he intended to propose via an on-campus flash mob, Tyshone was inspired to pop the question a week earlier. During a touching moment at a local pond, Porche reached back to throw a stone into the water. She turned around to find Tyshone on bended knee asking her for a simple trade: “a rock for a rock.”
