100130A1 SANTANA B GR 03 500x668 Carlos Santana Engaged — Santana Proposes To Drummer Cindy Blackman Onstage

Musician and philanthropist Carlos Santana proposed to drummer Cindy Blackman onstage during a concert in Tinley Park, Illinois on Friday night.

The veteran rocker — who is spending the summer crisscrossing the globe on his summer Universal Tour — popped the question four songs into a show at the Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, just outside Chicago, on Friday night. The romantic gesture followed Blackman’s virtuoso drum solo on the Santana hit “Corazon Espinado.” After the bride-to-be accepted Carlos’ proposal, the just-engaged couple shared a kiss to the sound of audience cheers.

The “Evil Ways” rocker confirmed news of the engagement in a statement to Monday: “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 divorced wife of 34 years Deborah King in 2007.

(Sidebar: I grew up listening to Santana. That band rawks! Congrats to Carlos.)
