Congratulations to the super talented and legendary Carlos Santana for proposing to acclaimed drummer Cindy Blackman while performing on stage.  He popped the question four songs into the show, and after she accepted, they kissed and the audience broke out into cheers.  “Cindy and I are blessed to have found each other,” said Santana.  “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."

This is the first marriage for Blackman and the second for Santana, who was married for 34 years to his former wife, Deborah.
