Well another year for Disney’s Night of Joy has come and gone. It was a whirlwind of activity – the concerts, the rides – everything went splendidly.

There were tons of unforgettable moments at this year’s event, and we wanted to share one of the happiest.

Night of Joy artist and American Idol® finalist Colton Dixon asked girlfriend Annie Coggeshall to marry him.


We caught up with the happy couple shortly after the proposal.

“I can’t believe I’m already at this stage of life. I’ve seen friends and family make this step, and it’s always seemed so far away, but here we are. After mulling over how and where to propose, I could think of no better place than Walt Disney World.” Colton said. “I’ve known that Annie was the one for me for a long time, but God’s timing is always perfect. Listening to Him and being intentional in our time together and apart as we grew as people was so important. Thank you to all of my friends and family who cheered me on during this time! There it is guys and gals. I’m getting married!!!!!!!”

Colton performed along with 16 other top Christian artists at this year’s event. Artists performed to sold out crowds both Friday and Saturday night on stages around Magic Kingdom Park.
