An audience in Chicago watching [lastfm]Carlos Santana[/lastfm] perform got to witness a spectacular surprise during the concert this past weekend.
Carlos proposed to his girlfriend on stage!
Cindy Blackman, the drummer of the group, had just finished up her drumming duties on the band’s forth song in the set, “Corazon Espinado.” Cindy, 50, and 62-year-old Carlos, have been a couple for a time after Cindy joined [lastfm]Santana[/lastfm] from her best known gig; recording and touring with [lastfm]Lenny Kravitz[/lastfm].
Carlos asked Cindy to be his bride Saturday night during the “Windy City” show, which got the audience involved not only in the group’s music, but the leader and the drummer’s love life as well.
Cindy said “yes” and the wedding date is pending….
