Beyoncé helped facilitate a marriage proposal during the St. Louis stop of her Formation World Tour. During “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” the artist’s choreographer and the tour’s creative director John Silver asked dance captain Ashley Everett to marry him.
Beyoncé got through the majority of the hit before pausing the performance to ask the audience who wants to come onstage with her. She teased her fans for a bit before inviting Silver out, to Everett’s surprise. Silver, a St. Louis native, spoke about his roots in the city. “She’s my queen, so I feel it’s only right to come out here in my hometown,” Silver said before dropping to one knee. Everett quickly said yes before the pair kissed and celebrated with Beyoncé and the rest of the dancers. After Silver left, they went back into the performance of the song, with Everett dancing and flashing her new ring.
