Although the love birds are just disclosing the news now, they have been engaged since Christmas Day. Professional photographer Reuben Chandler, is the man who found the gospel singing diva.
“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.”
Sharon Ingram posted on Damita's Twitter account: Its a new season, its a new day. God takes away the first to establish the second. Be happy!!!
Damita and Reuben first met 12 years ago while both were 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.
“I invited him to stop by to hang with me and some of my friends,” she shared. “I had no idea then that it would be the beginning of us starting to date.”
Damita is known for her album "No Looking Back," (2008) and "Anticipation" came out in 2012.
Congratulations Damita and Reuben! Our prayers are with you.
