Mrs. Carter: Did two contestants from “The Glee Project” season 2 find more than just fame this summer?
While neither Dani Shay or Ali Stroker talked were featured having that much of a relationship during the Oxygen series when it was airing (though this may have been thanks Shay leaving the competition fairly early on), the two apparently had a connection that has over time developed into a full-on relationship; and weeks after there were rumors that the two were actually an item, the pair have confirmed it in a way that only two aspiring stars would: through music.
The two made the announcement in part via the release of Shay’s new music video for “One” (featuring Ali), as the two shared the following message in the officially description of the video:
“We want to share with you the reasons we created this video, and would also love to hear how it made you feel. Our main goal was to share Love, and to open up a conversation about how true connections can exist beyond physical definitions. We’re both very passionate about moving past the limiting stereotypes we place on ourselves and others. We believe we’re all connected under the surface, and that as we learn to really listen to our hearts (and open our minds), the possibilities are endless. We are so grateful for your time, support, and love; thank you for being a part of this with us! A special thanks also to FUN. and The Ally Coalition (www.theallycoalition.org), for their commitment to positive change, and to Josh & Mara (the video crew) for being so awesome…”
Meanwhile, Ali posted a message of her own on her official website that may be in the running for one of the sweetest things ever. You can read the full post here, as this is just a small sample:
“I never expected to meet Dani and fall in love, and I especially never expected that I would want to share it with the world. Here I am. I couldn’t be more proud to share my love with all of you. No matter who you are. No matter what you think is or isn’t possible I am telling you that life’s surprises are the best gifts! I never thought I could have it all. It didn’t seem possible. I can say now, I feel like I got my fairy tale.”
One of the reasons why this relationship is something worth rooting for is simply that it was never overplayed on the reality show, or really even played at all. One of the joys of “The Glee Project” is how no one is ever defined by any one aspect of their personality, and this is something echoed in the couple’s messages.
What do you think about this music video, and of the fact that Ali and Dani are together? If you want to listen to some “Glee” music featuring a former “Glee Project” star currently on the show, you can over here.
