Beyonce helped arrange for one of her backup dancers to get engaged on the stage of her current tour over the weekend.

Beyonce Dancer Engagement

At the Formation tour stop in St. Louis, Missouri Saturday night, Beyonce oversaw an engagement. During a break in her set, choreographer John Silver got down on one knee to ask Beyonce’s dance captain Ashley Everett to marry him. “What better time than now to [express my love] in front of thousands and thousands of people?” Silver asked at the concert before turning to Everett to pop the question.

Everett took to Instagram following the momentous occasion to share a series of pictures and a message of gratitude.

“Still wrapping my head around the incredible, magical moment that happened last night! It was an absolute dream come true!” Everett wrote. “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!!!”
