This is most definitely one for the books and a never forget moment as famed director Will Packer proposed to his longtime girlfriend Heather Hayslett live on-stage in-front of 40,000 fans inside the Mercedes Benz Superdome during the 2013 Essence Festival on Friday (July 5th).
According to ESSENCE, Packer got down on one knee to pop the question. “We met four years ago, here at ESSENCE,” said Packer. “Heather you changed my life. You make me happier than words can express.”
And if your not too sure who Will Packer is, then this should give you some insight. Packer rose to fame in the ’90s and early ’00s after producing a number of movies.
In recent years, Packer’s career grew to new heights when he signed on to produce Obsessed, Stop the Yard, Think Like a Man and Think Like a Man Too, which is scheduled to debut in 2014.
