Love is in the air! Olivia Jean and Jack White married just minutes after proposing to Olivia on stage during his concert in their hometown of Detroit on April 9, 2022.

Jack White surprised his fans and supporters at his concert last night at the Masonic Temple in his hometown of Detroit while proposing to his girlfriend Olivia Jean on stage.

The 12-time Grammy Award winner brought his girlfriend on stage to perform a duet of the band’s 2001 hit Hotel Yorba. Then he told the audience that she was his girlfriend and that he had a question for her.

“Will you marry me?” The 46-year-old White Stripes frontman said to the 32-year-old singer as he presented her with a ring.

The couple was then joined by Olivia’s father, Brent Markel, and Jack’s mother Teresa Gillis as well as members of The White Stripes and his close friend Ben Flack who served as the officiant. 

To kick off the glorious ceremony, Flack quoted the first verse from Prince and the Revolution’s 1984 song Let’s Go Crazy. He said: “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.”

After a quick ceremony, White resumed the concert, singing the two of the band’s biggest hits Steady Seven Nation Army and As She Goes.

Jack said at the end of the concert: “God bless you Detroit. What a day!”

Olivia Jean and Jack White Married at Tour

After proposing on stage during a concert, Olivia Jean and Jack White married. The proposal and wedding make a big day for the star as earlier he had released his 4th solo studio album Fear of the Dawn.

The recording artist also performed the National Anthem song at the Detroit Tigers Opening Day game at Comerica Park.

The Fell In Love With A Girl singer was previously married to British model Karen Elson from 2005 to 2013 and also to his former bandmate Meg White from 1996 to 2000. Jack shares 15-year-old daughter Scarlet Teresa and 12-year-old son Henry Lee with Karen Elson, 43.

According to Rolling Stone, the star met fellow Detroit native Olivia in 2009 after Jean sent him a demo of her recordings. White invited her to his Third Man Records studio and introduced her to the great musicians that Olivia would eventually team up with from the goth band The Black Belles.

The group went on hiatus in 2021 and Jean went on to pursue a solo career. Olivia shares photos of the two on her Instagram account from time to time.

In July, Jean posted a black and white photo in which she was seen posing with the star, writing, “Happy birthday Jack. An incredible human and one of the greatest friends a gal can have.”

Olivia Jean Markel who was born on February 23, 1990, is known as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. She is also known as the lead singer and guitarist of the “garage goth” rock band, the Black Belles.

Jack White, the founder of Third Man Records, discovered Jean after hearing a demo of her recordings at a Dead Weather show in Detroit, Michigan.

She received an invitation to record and sing at Third Man Records in Nashville, Tennessee in 2009. Jack recorded several of her songs such as “What Can I Do?”, which would later be released by the Black Belles.

White introduced Olivia to musicians Ruby Rogers and Shelby Lynne and they formed a band. After their success in the studio, they decided to become a band.

The success of the Black Belles led to her career as a solo artist. In 2014, Olivia’s debut solo album, Bathtub Love Killings, was released by Third Man Records.

Her second solo album, Night Owl was released in August 2019 and also on Third Man Records. She has also performed and recorded with artists such as Jack White, Wanda Jackson, and Karen Elson, among others.
