Carlos Santana and Cindy Blackman get engaged onstage

That’s what Carlos Santana did last Friday at a concert in Tinley Park, Ill., according to a press release. The guitar hero popped the question four songs into his set when noted drummer Cindy Blackman finished her spotlight moment in his song “Corazon Espinado.” She said yes.
Pretty romantic, no? Were any of you at the Illinois stop on Santana’s Universal Tone Tour? Join us in sending the newly engaged couple our best wishes in the comments below.
