Christina Aguilera launched her “Liberation” tour Tuesday night, with her concert at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida, including a romantic surprise for fans.
“What’s happening here tonight?” Aguilera asked the crowd before inviting “two special people” on stage: Ben Lear and Mike Kontomanolis.
“I want to share this with you guys,” Xtina told the audience, as seen in the fan-shot video above. “I have a really special surprise that’s happening tonight.”

Next, Lear dropped to one knee and procured an engagement ring from his pocket.
“You’re kind, you’re beautiful, you’re loving,” he told Kontomanolis. “Six years ago, you proposed to me and you gave me the opportunity to say yes. Tonight, in front of Christina, I’m going to ask you the same question.”
Overcome with emotion, he said yes.
“Oh, my God!” exclaimed the excited singer. “Congratulations!”
Kontomanolis concluded by expressing his gratitude to Aguilera: “You are so important to me. You’ve gotten me through so many important things. I don’t know where I would be if I didn’t have you and your music to lift me up and just carry me through.”
“I wanted to share and dedicate this special moment,” she said, “to two people who have been tried and true through my life and supported me. So, I want to wish you guys the best of luck. Thank you so much… Congratulations, you guys!”
She then launched into her hit “Let There Be Love”.
