Last month, Luke James made headlines for a surprise performance at a couple’s wedding reception seen on a video that went viral on YouTube. Now the bride, Leslie R. Bullock, is explaining how her husband, Mitch Bullock, was able to coax the singer into performing his heartfelt single “I Want You” at the reception.
“Luke James and my husband met while on the [Beyonce‘s] Mrs. Carter World Tour in 2013. They became good friends. Luke found out about our wedding and offered to sing at our special day,” Bullock told ABC News in a statement. “My husband and Luke’s manager made all the arrangements to surprise me on our wedding day.”
Leslie, who describes herself as “one of Luke’s biggest fans,” says that his tender ballad was the perfect song to soundtrack their first dance as husband and wife.
“The song was perfect and to top it off, to have him sing live and in person for me was amazing! It was a breath-taking performance and even more unforgettable memory,” she writes. “Words can not express how truly thankful we are. God really blessed Luke with an amazing voice. This was my fairy tale wedding come true.”
