American Idolâ€™s season 7 finalist Jason Castro has married his long-term girlfriend Mandy Mayhall. Get the story here, along with photos and video.
You may remember Jason as the kid with the wild dreads and the smooth voice on American Idol. Sorry ladies, but the singer wed his girlfriend in Texas over the weekend.
According to reports, Jason spent the entirety of last week partying it up with his buddies in an extended bachelor party.
Castro seems thrilled about making the ultimate commitment. He let his feelings be known this weekend when he tweeted about this message:
“Yesterday I married the girl of my dreamsâ€¦It couldn’t have been more perfect! Now, honeymoooon!!! ”
The two have been friends for quite sometime and were finally engaged last year. Fittingly dressed as â€˜Beauty and the Beastâ€™ (sorry Jason), he proposed to Mandy Mayhall at the Oklahoma vs Kansas state football game on Halloween. Some outlets even reported that he carved â€˜Marry me?â€™ into a pumpkin. What a multi-talented guy!
It sounds like things are going well for Jason these days. He has an EP called â€˜The Love Uncompromisedâ€™ due out January 12th. He recently made a music video for a track from that record called â€˜Let’s Just Fall In Love Again’ (see it below). It sounds like love is an ongoing theme for this guy.
Later this year he is expected to release a full-length album. Rumor has it that he will also begin a promotional tour sometime in January or Februaryâ€”so look out for him at a venue near you.
Not much is actually known about his new bride. We do know that they have been friends since high school, and had only been engaged for a few months before actually walking down the aisle.
Congrats to the happy couple!
