Singer Eric Benet, whose divorce from Halle Berry was finalized in 2005, has just announced that he plans to tie the knot with girlfriend Manuela Testolini.
Currently on vacation in Egypt celebrating their engagement, the two are planning a summer wedding, according to USA Today.
The bride-to-be, formerly known as Manuela Testolini Nelson, was married to Prince from 2001 to 2006. She is the founder of the children’s charity A Perfect World (Benet’s daughter India, whose mother passed away in 1993, is featured as a Youth Ambassador on the organization’s official website).
Benet, 44, popped the question in November with an antique diamond ring, and says the engagement was an intimate — and musical — moment: “During a romantic dinner, I decided to finally let Manuela hear ‘Never Want to Live Without You,’ a song off my new album that I had written for her. I sang it to her, then got down on one knee and proposed.”
