<p><span></span>Diva <strong>Mariah Carey</strong> helped make a dream come true for a gay man and his partner by allowing them to get engaged in the middle of her show. </p>
Maurie Sherman, 31, proposed to his Mariah Carey-superfan boyfriend, Matthew Almeida, 26, at Mariah's concert this past Saturday at the Pearl at the Palms resort in Las Vegas. The couple waited backstage before being taken to the stage, where Maurie proposed with a ring made of candy -- just like the one Mariah Carey's husband, Nick Cannon, gave the superstar.
"Three years ago, Matthew said that I would be allowed to ask him to marry me if I ever got him to meet [Mariah]," Maurie said to the crowd. "Matthew, Mariah, Mariah, Matthew. I'm hoping that my Mariah will accept his Nick Cannon," he said.
