Carlos Santana Proposes to Cindy Blackman Onstage

July 13, 2010 9:24 PM | Carlos Santana | Comments (0)

Rock guitarist Carlos Santana is welcoming a new step in his life with his drummer Cindy Blackman. The Grammy-winning virtuoso behind '70s hits such as "Black Magic Woman" and "Oye Como Va" proposed to Blackman onstage after almost three years after his wife filed for divorce, during his concert last Friday in suburban Chicago, his label said on Monday.

According to a statement by Sony Music, Blackman just performed a drum solo on the song "Corazon Espinado" when Santana proposed. She accepted the proposal, the couple kissed and the audience cheered.

In a statement Santana said, "Cindy and I are blessed to have found each other. Being in love is a gift from the universe, and the spirit and vibrations that come with it are infinitely powerful. I look forward to expressing that incredible energy through my music, and in helping to tip the balance toward more love in the world with what Cindy and I share."

Santana, who turns 63 next week, was previously married for more than 30 years to Deborah Santana, the mother of his three children. It was in October 2007 when she filed for divorce with grounds of irreconcilable differences. In her 2005 memoir, "Space between the Stars," she revealed that her husband had been unfaithful. On the other hand, Carlos Santana said he had apologized and tried to be a better man.

According to his label, he has sold over 90 million albums worldwide during a career spanning more than 40 years. He won eight Grammy Awards for his hugely popular 1999 comeback album "Supernatural," and plans to release an album of rock cover tunes in September.

Blackman, 50, recorded and toured extensively with Lenny Kravitz, and played with such artists as Pharoah Sanders, Cassandra Wilson, and Bill Laswell.
