A Raleigh couple will be serenaded by Grammy award winner John Legend at their wedding this fall.

Cindy Glass and Allen White have been together for 11 years and became engaged over Christmas.

“The fact that he will be singing at our wedding is still kind of unbelievable,” Glass said.

The couple donates to charity annually. Since Glass is a huge John Legend fan, her fiancé decided to donate to the singer’s charity, the Show Me Campaign via Omaze.

The Show Me Campaign, which launched in 2007, works to break the cycle of poverty by supporting programs that help give children a quality education. Omaze is an online platform that gives people the chance to win an once-in-a-lifetime experience that also supports social missions.

Fans who donated $10 to Legend’s charity were entered into raffle to win a private performance from the Grammy award winner. Glass and White donated $500 and won the grand prize.

“I personally didn’t expect to win at first, at first,” White said.

The couple has chosen Legend’s “All of me” as their wedding song.

It will be a second marriage for them both.

The couple met 11 years ago at a Halloween party.

“He reached across all over those people and he says you, would you dance with me?” Glass said.

“She had a beautiful smile, she still does,” White added.

White and Glass hope to have the wedding in September or October.
