D'Angelo and Tyra originally met while in college at Howard University, they were both in the marching band. The couple had been together for six years and seven month when D'Angelo reached out to The Yes Girls to plan his incredibly thoughtful performing proposal!
With their musical backgrounds in mind, D'Angelo knew he wanted to create an epic performance for his proposal to Tyra. The Fillmore Theatre set the stage - when Tyra and D'Angelo arrived, Tyra is brought to chair with a beautiful floral arrangement. D'Angelo then hands Tyra a program and continues to perform a song for her while the stage is filled with red rose petals and candles. He then invites her to comes up on stage and as she does, her family surprises her with MARRY ME balloons! That is D'Angelo's cue to go down on one knee and pull his thin, engagement ring box from his Next Step Box Socks. Of course, she says yes!
