You may not have heard a lot from Tamyra Gray since the first season of America Idol, but the finalist is back in the news ... with some very happy news of her own.

Gray married songwriter and producer Sam Watters in Capri, Italy, on Saturday. The pair has been dating for two years.

The wedding took place before 45 guests on a cliff overlooking the ocean. After the ceremony, People magazine reports "they walked through the city and townspeople were opening their windows and cheering for them," Gray's manager, Lisa Braudé, said.

Since becoming a fan favorite on American Idol in 2002, Gray has ventured into acting: she had a recurring role on Boston Legal in 2003, appeared in the 2005 indie film The Gospel and played a waitress on NBC's Las Vegas in March. In 2004, she released an album, The Dreamer.

Watters was a member of the early '90s R&B group Color Me Badd, which was most well-known for the unforgettable hit, "I Wanna Sex You Up." Since then, he's worked with partner Louis Biancaniello as a writer and producer for artists such as Jessica Simpson (he co-wrote her song "A Public Affair"), Celine Dion and Kelly Clarkson.

He also co-wrote, produced and arranged several songs on The Dreamer.
