Santana Extends Offer to Winwood, Proposal to Blackman
Carlos Santana’s betrothed
Steve Winwood and Carlos Santana are in the midst of a leg of a tour which will extend through August 1. During the Friday performance at the Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, IL, Santana revealed that he has invited Winwood to join him on stage for the pair’s forthcoming dates. Earlier in the evening however, a more personal offer was extended during the show. Four songs into the night Santana brought out his girlfriend, drummer Cindy Blackman (Lenny Kravitz) who soloed during “Corazon Espinado.” The guitarist then formally asked her to marry him, she assented and the pair kissed to the cheers of the crowd.
Audiences can share good tidings at the group’s next show on Wednesday in Ottawa.
