As a single lady myself, hearing Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies” during the bouquet toss of EVERY WEDDING I’VE BEEN TO SINCE 2008 is a little obnoxious for me…ya feel? Just leave me alone for the next 3 minutes and let me go to the bar, lol…
Now don’t get me wrong, I still love the song, and now it has even more of a special meaning to Beyonce’s long time lead backup dancer, Ashley Everett. She’s been on tour with Bey since 2007, and last weekend her boyfriend got down on one knee during a live performance of that song!
According to the Houston Chronicle, “Everett’s boyfriend, fellow dancer and choreographer John Silver, worked with Queen Bey to pop the question to Everett during the performance of “Single Ladies,” which is known for calling out guys for hesitating with marriage proposals. Beyoncé stopped the music and invited Sliver onstage and the surprise began. “I don’t know if y’all know this young lady, she goes by the name of Ashley Everett. She’s my queen,” Silver said. “Baby, I know that you don’t think that I express my love to you in front of everybody, so I feel like what better time than now to do it in front of thousands and thousands of people.” As he got down on one knee, his bride-to-be gasped, placing her hands over her mouth, and said yes. “So I put a ring on it. Thank you, Bey,” Silver said.”
Watch the adorable video above and try not to be totally jealous of how high John has now set the engagement bar, haha. Congrats guys!
