Pop star Kesha helped a gay couple get engaged on her stage last weekend.
The singer was performing at Disney World Resort’s annual Gay Days celebration, which is a celebration of the gay community at the theme park during the US’ Pride Month celebrations.
Kesha invited Joseph Negrelli and his fiance Naveed on stage, and both men were blindfolded before Joseph got down on one knee and proposed.
“I had been wanting to propose for a while, just was not sure how to do it, so I just decided to message her on Instagram and never thinking in a million years she’d ever get back to me, and then she did!” Joseph told Billboard.com.
“She put me in touch with her manager, and tried to hammer out the details from there.
“[Family and friends] helped keep Naveed distracted — he had no idea. Every once in a while I had to go meet with some of the producers at Disney who were putting on the show, and I had to disappear, so they had to make up some excuses of where I was.”
Kesha wrote on Instagram the next day: “Overcome and overwhelmed with emotion on stage last night… Love is the magic in life, and really there is nothing more important. He said yes. 😉 He actually said ‘A million times, yes.’ Then my heart melted and I cried, haha. Congratulations.”
The couple later shared a selfie with Kesha on their Instagram, writing: “We can’t thank you enough @iiswhoiis for making this the most incredible, amazing, and beautiful moment of our lives that we will cherish forever. It means the world to us!”
