The crowd shouted and screamed as the singer got down on one knee and asked Alicia Etheridge to be his wife on stage of the annual Funk Fest.
Bobby Brown is ready to get married for the second time. The R&B singer/songwriter has proposed to Alicia Etheridge, with whom he has been dating for almost three years. And the proposal was quite romantic as the 41-year-old star took the stage to pop the important question.
On Friday, May 7, Bobby performed at the annual Funk Fest in Jacksonville, Florida. Later, Alicia and their 11-month-old son Cassius joined him on stage. At that moment, the musician bent on his knee and asked her hand in marriage.
Paul and Carol Pearsall, who were among the audience, said the proposal was shocking. "We shouted, we screamed. We supported him," Carol said. And the crowd went crazy as Alicia gave a "yes" answer and the pair kissed on stage. There has been no word on the wedding date.
Bobby Brown began romancing his manager Alicia Etheridge after ending his almost-15-year marriage with Whitney Houston. The former spouse has a daughter together, 17-year-old Bobbi Kristina. The "My Prerogative" hitmaker additionally has three sons, Bobby Brown, Jr, La Princia Brown and Landon Brown, from his previous relationships.
