"Last night April Sheets and I finally got engaged!!! We met each other during the West Coast Premiere of In the Heights in 2012. It was only fitting that I propose to her on stage after the closing performance at the California Theater where I got to take on the lead role of Usnavi. Thank you so much to all of our friends and family that were able to attend and thank you for all the love we have been receiving through calls and messages. We couldn't be happier and excited to take this next step in our lives! So excited to dance through life with my best friend."
