So CeeLo Green has been engaged for a year.
Green revealed the news to Peoplewhile filming a music video for "Work," a track to be released on his upcoming album Heart Blanche, which drops Nov. 6.
Green also popped the question to longtime girlfriend Shani James while making music.
"It was just a typical night at the studio, but then again, not so typical cause I did something extra special, out of the ordinary," he told People. "I went and purchased a ring that we had seen together, maybe four or five months or so prior. I went back and purchased the ring, and I just kind of had it stashed away in some old equipment. And I said, 'Will you reach in there and grab something for me?'"

"Truth be told, it's not something we want to promote," said the "Forget You" singer. "We're a collective power together because our private life is sacred."
Former Voice coach Green has been heavily scrutinized since facing a felony drug charge and posting some controversial tweets.
"I appreciate her openness and willingness to love unconditionally," Green told Peopleof his fiancee. "She's been so sweet to me through a number of different trials that come to test the resilience of a union to deem whether it's worthy or not, whether it's durable or strong enough. "
