The engagement comes after earlier this month Rebecca announced she is retiring from music and her upcoming album, due out next year, will be her last.
The star took to Twitter and confirmed she plans on retiring from performing and will instead dedicate her career to help nurture young artists.
According to the Daily Star, she said: ‘My final album will drop next year and will be a combination of songs I have written over the past 10 years.
‘After my retirement, I will dedicate my time and energy into helping and nurturing emerging artists and fighting for better treatment.’
On Twitter, she wrote: ’10 years today I released my first album Heaven… A young woman telling her story through songs, this album took me around the world and changed my life! I am grateful to all of the people involved! We created a classic album that is still listened to today.
‘I look forward to concluding my career with my next album a follow on from this album (Heaven pt 2)’.
‘I am grateful for the career I have had in music, I’ve achieved all that I ever wanted to achieve in music I’m now excited for my next chapter.’
Rebecca also said that the unfair streaming revenue for artists is damaging the industry and contributed to her decision to leave.
The singer found fame as a contestant on The X Factor in 2010 where she finished as runner-up to winner Matt Cardle.
