Lady Gaga has only been engaged for a few weeks and she's already hired her wedding singer.

Gaga's pal, and Cheek to Cheek collaborator, Tony Bennett, has revealed that he's been asked to sing at her wedding. "They invited me to do it and, of course, I will," he told the New York Post about her upcoming nuptials to Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney.

However, Bennett wouldn't divulge too many other details about what's going to go down at the event. He did confirm the one thing everyone does suspect about a Gaga affair. "All I know is, knowing Lady Gaga, it will be fabulous," he said.

Something else he thinks is fabulous? Gaga's future husband. "She's marrying a very wonderful man, very talented and very handsome," he said. "I think he's going be highly successful in films. He's a very nice person."

Kinney popped the question on Valentine's Day. She confirmed the news on Instagram with a selfie of her heart-shaped diamond engagement ring.
