Congratulations are in order for Maurie Sherman and Mathew Almeida who became engaged Saturday night in front of Mariah Carey on stage at her concert at the Pearl at the Palms in Las Vegas. That feat took Sherman six months to finagle; all the while, Almeida never suspected.
Sherman told the LA Times: “I worked as hard as I can to make it happen. Everyone loved the idea. But no one made promises. I did not find out until five minutes before the concert started. Her security came over and talked to me. ‘I think we are going to do this. And, I think it will be during the show on stage.’ I did not know before that moment. But I came prepared. I dressed nicely and brought the candy ring in my pocket and made sure it didn’t break. Mathew had no idea. Please let me add thanks to Mariah for doing it.”
