Chanté Moore is living the title of her 1999 top ten hit, “Chanté’s Got A Man.”

Wednesday she announced her engagement to former BET President of Programming Stephen Hill, one day after his 60th birthday.

The American Music, Soul Train Music, and NAACP Image Award winner began with lyrics from “Happier Than the Morning Sun” by Stevie Wonder.

“I’m happier than the morning sun… and that’s the way you said that I would be… so glad I gave you a chance to come inside my life… I couldn’t think of a better way to say what love, peace and joy I feel because of you @stephengranthill.” the 54-year-old singer wrote on Instagram with a photo of the two of them enjoying an ocean sunset on a yacht 

“Thank you for showering me with more than I ever expected!! Happy Birthday and I love you! Who knew 30 years ago, through many chance meetings, we would end up HERE!?!?,” she continued. “But, here we are…. WE will enjoy OUR gift of the “PRESENT!”

Hill commented, “This has been my best year ever and the continuation of that best is just beginning. Celebrating a solar spin today and am brand new. After 21,915 days…this ol’ heart is skipping the right beats on the regular. May you, right now, at whatever age you are, feel as strong, vibrant and in love as I am right now…at 60. Best birthday ever. I love you.”

Stephen also shared a 21 minute video dancing with Moore to Junior’s “Mama Used to Say,” with the caption, “A lil’ loopin with my fianceé.”

Chanté has been married three times before, including to Kadeem Hardison, with whom she shares daughter Sophia, 25, and Kenny Lattimore, with whom she shares son Kenny Jr., 18.
