Usher had a packed weekend with a halftime show performance, an album release and a surprise wedding.

WASHINGTON — Usher had plenty to celebrate over Super Bowl weekend.

Not only did the 45-year-old artist deliver a spectacular performance full of surprise guests at the Super Bowl halftime show, the Grammy-winning R&B singer married his longtime partner Jenn Goicoechea.

The couple married Sunday at Vegas Weddings, according to a marriage certificate made public Monday. The ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Ronald Joseph Polrywka, better known locally as Ron DeCar. Witnesses included Jonnetta Patton, Usher’s mother.

“Congratulations to the Newlyweds!” chapel owner Melody Willis-Williams said in a statement. “We were beyond thrilled to host in this epic day for Usher and his new wife.”

“As much as we love, love,” the statement adds, “this is the couple’s news to share any further details on. We’ll always be fans of Usher! Yeah!”

Following the NFL championship game, Usher was spotted with Goicoechea in Las Vegas wearing a gold wedding band on his left ring finger. 

Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, and the music executive obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, three days before the NFL championship game, People reported on Sunday.

Usher, 45, and Goicoechea, 40, have been together since 2019 and have two young daughters. A representative for Usher, Lydia Kanuga, did not immediately respond to questions, including whether the minister posed as Elvis and whether the service was conducted in the chapel, on a balcony or in the drive-thru lane.

“We’ve obviously made a commitment to life, for life together because of our children,” Usher said in an interview with People last week. “It wouldn’t be odd for us to get married. We already did here. You know what I’m saying?”

Clark County Clerk Lynn Marie Goya, the head of the county’s marriage license bureau, confirmed that her office issued a license to Usher and Goicoechea last week.

“Naturally they got married in Las Vegas,” Goya said. “What better place than the ‘Wedding Capital of the World?’”

The document, issued Thursday, lists the couple’s full names — Usher Raymond IV and Jennifer Jean Goicoechea — and shows they paid a $102 filing fee. It notes that Usher had been married before and Goicoechea had not. It also listed their business address at a commercial building in the Encino neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Usher divorced his first wife, Tameka Foster, in 2009 after two years together, and he won custody of their two sons. In December 2018, the singer filed for divorce after three years together with his second wife and former manager, Grace Miguel.

Usher’s Super Bowl halftime performance Sunday at Allegiant Stadium drew acclaim and included guest appearances by such stars as Alicia Keys, H.E.R., Jermaine Dupri, Lil Jon and Ludacris. The Kansas City Chiefs won the NFL championship game in overtime, 25-22, over the San Francisco 49ers.

Usher recently ended a two-year Las Vegas Strip residency where he performed “Usher: My Way” at the Park MGM. He just released his first solo album in eight years, and in August is scheduled to kick off a 24-city U.S. tour titled “Past Present Future.”
