Last night (4/15), APEX BROADCASTING Hot AC WMXZ (MIX 96)/CHARLESTON, SC hosted a sold out concert featuring JOHN LEGEND at the NORTH CHARLESTON PERFORMING ARTS CENTER. Contestants had the opportunity to win tickets to the sold out show, with a grand prize winner receiving a once in a lifetime chance to sit on-stage with JOHN LEGEND for the entire show.
Grand prize winner KASEY LELAND joined LEGEND on-stage (just one day after her birthday) and it was her first concert ever! She was joined by her invited guest, her boyfriend of four years ETHAN LONG.
At the meet and greet before the show, ETHAN pulled PD SAMMY SUAREZ aside and told him that he wanted to propose to KASEY on stage. This information was relayed to JOHN LEGEND who replied, "I got this."
During the show, the recently married LEGEND asked the audience "Who here is on a date tonight?" After a big round of applause he then singled out KASEY and ETHAN and asked them how long they had been dating? ETHAN nervously replied "Four years" to which JOHN replied "And you haven't gotten her a ring yet?"
With that ETHAN pulled out the ring, dropped to one knee and proposed to KASEY in front of thousands. KASEY said "Yes!" The couple were then serenaded by JOHN LEGEND who performed his current hit love song "All Of Me."
