Christina Aguilera has invited a gay couple on stage to get engaged at the first concert of her new tour.
The singer, who is touring her latest album Liberation, performed the marriage-themed song called “Unless It’s With You”.
The song includes the lyrics, “I don’t want to get married / Unless it’s with you” and she appropriately took the opportunity to help gay couple Ben Lear and Mike Kontomanolis get engaged.
“I have a really special surprise that’s happening tonight. I want to welcome two special people to the stage, Ben Lear and Mikey K,” she told the crowd.
After they were brought up, Ben answered by taking the microphone, turning to his tearful partner.
“I could not have imagined you could have a better moment than [with] this woman, who has inspired you throughout your whole life and has brought you through so many things,” he said.
He then told Christina, “Thank you for being an inspiration to not only everybody here, but to him.”
Turning back to his partner, he gripped his arm and said: “You’re kind, you’re beautiful, you’re loving.
“Six years ago, you proposed to me and you gave me the opportunity to say yes. Tonight, in front of Christina, I’m going to ask you the same question.”
Lear took a ring out of his pocket, handed the microphone to Christina, and got down on one knee.
Mike, in tears, nodded in answer to Lear’s question, and the pair embraced and kissed as Christina congratulated the newly engaged couple.
“I wanted to share and dedicate this special moment to two people who have been tried and true through my life and supported me,” she said.
“I want to wish you guys the best of luck. Congratulations, you guys!”
