On her 21st birthday, Chevel Shepherd announced her engagement to Junior Garcia on social media.
The Voice season 15 winner and Team Kelly Clarkson member, wrote in a heartfelt message, “You’re looking at future Mrs. Garcia!! God put us together and He sure did bless me with the most amazing, loving, kind man ever. I love you so much, and I’m so excited to marry you and spend forever with you.” She then thanked Isaiah Grijalva for taking the sweet photographs.
In the photos, Junior is down on his knee offering a ring to Chevel against a mountainous backdrop. The second photo shows the two in an embrace after she said yes.
They Recently Celebrated 1 year Together
In April, the Team Kelly Clarkson member commemorated the couple’s one year anniversary together in an Instagram post. “1 year with you my love, and it has flown by. I’m so happy I get to spend forever with you. My life has been better since you came into it, and I’m so happy you’re mine. I love you. Happy 1 year”
In 2021, Chevel released her debut EP Everybody’s Got A Story, which reflected a traditional country sound. Recorded in Nashville the set features cuts written by acclaimed songwriters, Kacey Musgraves, Shane McAnally, Brandy Clark and more.
“I was singing almost before I could walk, surrounded by the music that my parents listened to – country music and classic rock,” Chevel shared at the time. “Loretta Lynn, Reba, Tanya Tucker and The Chicks are some of my musical heroes. What they have accomplished in their careers inspires me to stay true to who I am – embrace my traditional sound, style and love for storytelling.”
