After dating for just a short while, Barrino knew that Kendall was ”The One” for her.

She told Billboard:

“I just knew. I was getting ready to go on the road, and he got on his knees and said, ‘Can I pray for you? I just want to cover for you down the road.’”

Fantasia went on to say:

”In the time I’d been fasting from relationships, I asked God for ­someone to pray for me — someone that could cover me and my kids and be the man of the house. That’s when I knew.”

On July 18, 2015, the couple married aboard a yacht. To ensure that the ceremony reflected her unique personality, Fantasia wore a black, red, and white-colored theme dress.
