Not your average Disney proposal! Two men got engaged during a Gay Days event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Saturday, June 4 — with the help of Kesha.

The “TiK ToK” singer took to the stage during a late-night bash in Lake Buena Vista, where she performed her hits along with a new single called “True Colors.” Little did the crowd know, she was about to make even more Disney magic happen for a man named Joey Negrelli and his boyfriend, Naveed.

Mid-performance, Kesha called Negrelli and his love to the stage to get the wheels in motion. Then, Negrelli dropped to one knee. Kesha held the microphone up for the roaring crowd to hear his proposal and the sweet “engaygement” was captured on video!

“I never knew I could love anybody in the world as much as you,” Negrelli said. “My life has become so much better…so…will you marry me?’

Before a response was even uttered, Naveed dropped down on one knee to meet Joey face-to-face. Naveed then accepted the proposal saying, “A million times yes.”

The pop rock singer opened up about her reaction to the special moment in an Instagram post. “I’m honored that @jnegrelli57 & @m_abu24 shared such a monumental moment with me, and let me help orchestrate their surprise engagement,” the star wrote, alongside a photo of herself covering her mouth in joy while the two men kissed on stage.

“Love is the magic in life, and really there is nothing more important,” she continued on Sunday. “He said yes. He actually said ’a million times, yes.’ Then my heart melted and I cried. Haha. Congratulations.”

Later, Negrelli shared a selfie with is new fiancé and the award-winning singer with some words of gratitude. “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,” he wrote. “It means the world to us!#engayged #gaykeshaproposal #omw #onemagicalweekend.”

The longtime LGBT rights supporter Kesha then re-posted the selfie of “her boys” asking for “only love” in the comments. “If you don’t support equal rights then we have nothing in common,” she said adding, “#equalityforall #loveoverhate.”

Joey and Naveed have yet to announce any wedding plans just yet, but have already prepared for the big day. The couple who will always cherish their extra-magical Disney engagement received groom-style Mickey ears decorated with little tuxedos with tails and top hats from some friends and shared them in an Instagram photo on Monday, June 6. They even got their names embroidered on them so there’s no confusing whose “cute hat” is whose!
