Beyoncé Stopped Her Concert to Help Pull Off the Engagement of a Lifetime
After a few weeks of vocal rest, Beyoncé resumed her Formation World Tour on Saturday night (Sept. 10, 2016) in St. Louis.
While every single Beyoncé concert is a magical experience, St. Louis’ concert goers were in for a particularly sweet treat. About half way through the concert, just as Beyoncé and her dancers were performing the iconic “Single Ladies” dance, Bey halted the entire show telling the audience there was a special guest she wanted to bring out on stage.
Out walked John Silver, the longtime boyfriend of Beyoncé’s dance captain Ashley Everette, who proceeded to give a heartfelt speech, get down on one knee, pull out a ring and pull off the proposal of a lifetime, all in front of a few thousand people.
Still wrapping my head around the incredible, magical moment that happened last night! It was an absolute dream come true! 🙌🏽 Thank you to everyone who helped make it so epic and iconic, and to everyone who supports us and congratulated us! To my now FIANCÉ @1j.silver YOU DID THAT & I LOVE THE SH*T OUT OF YOU!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Shocked is an understatement. I’m so overly excited for this new chapter in our lives and of course I can’t wait to be your WIFE!!!💍👰🏽 I am truly #blessed 🙏🏽 9.10.16 is a day I will never forget 😁 #helikeditsoheputaringonit #isaidyes 💁🏽
Silver and Everette weren’t able to celebrate their engagement for too long, because as they say, the show must go on.
