Two amazing musicians have come together to get married. Carlos Santana proposed on stage to his girlfriend Cindy Blackman! Continue for all the details, including more photos and a video from that magical night!
The Universal Tone Tour has been going on for about two months. At Friday’s show in Tinley Park, Illinois, the 62 year old made it extra special by popping the question after his girlfriend’s amazing drum solo! What happened next?!
She said yes, and the two sealed the deal with an onstage kiss! Fans cheered after Carlos Santa proposed and the whole night seemed to be a celebration of love. He said in a statement to MTV:
“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.”
They are already, and I am sure will continue to be, a powerful pair in music. The groom-to-be has had a career spanning more than 40 years, with millions of records sold and awards like the Grammys. The blushing bride is no small fish either, as she is an acclaimed artist in both jazz and rock circles. She has performed with Lenny Kravitz and Cassandra Wilson. I don’t think there is any better way to ask for her hand in marriage than on stage, which is special to both of them!
The “Supernatural” singer was married previously for 34 years to Deborah Santana and they have three kids together. However due to differences, and maybe extramarital affairs, they divorced in 2007. It seems this will be the first marriage for the 50 year old drummer. They sure seem happy and I wish them the best!
