GospelFab! is pleased to announce that Syndicated Radio Personality Corey “CoCo Brother” Condrey married Gospel Recording Artist Joann Rosario on New Years Eve in a ceremony in Chicago.
A few years ago, while Joann was promoting one of her albums, she did an interview for “The Spirit of Hip-Hop,” Cory’s radio show. Cory was in Los Angeles so they did not meet at that time but they became more familiar with each others ministries. “Cory’s producer encouraged him t look up info on Joann but Cory insisted that they had no time to check out girls and they needed to stay focused on Kingdom work.”
It was around earlier April 2008 that Joann Rosario reached out to Cory Condrey after seeing his page on their friend Darwin Hobbs Myspace page. A chance email of encouragement led to a three-way phone conversation with the two of them and Darwin Hobbs on the line. It led to Cory and Joann building a friendship through emails, which eventually led to a few conversations on the phone. This went on for 2 to 3 months, while they remained in the “friend zone”.
It was around July 12, when Joann had a singing engagement in Atlanta, GA (Cory’s home). They met for the first time face to face. They went to eat Friday’s Restaurant. After conversation, this was the day that Cory decided to pursue something more than friendship. It was on Labor Day that Cory went to Chicago to ask her father if he could date her, as it is custom in her culture. Her father gave him his blessing and told him that he could marry her as soon as they were ready.
So December 31, 2008 was designated to be the big day!
‘What’s next for the couple?’
Well Joann has relocated to Atlanta and the couple will be working in ministry together on the Radio on Praise 97.5… and they lived happily ever after.
Congrats to the Condreys! Check out photos from the Proposal in the Gallery..
