The vocalist got engaged to professional photographer Reuben Chandler on Christmas Day, though the couple is just disclosing the news now.
The ‘No Looking Back’ singer spoke exclusively to us about her engagement.
“I’m very happy because someone has found me that loves me for me,” she emoted to AlwaysAList.com. “When I wasn’t looking, it seemed like God placed him right in front of me. Funny thing is Reuben wasn’t looking for a mate either.”
Damita and Reuben first met 12 years ago while both serving at Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Florida. The two reconnected a little more than a year ago while Reuben, who resides in Alabama, was visiting Atlanta.
Damita, who is an Atlanta resident, was having a cookout with some friends and invited the photographer over.
