Oye Como Va - Carlos Santana will be wearing a wedding ring soon!

According to ABC News, the rock guitarist proposed to his girlfriend, Cindy Blackman, in Chicago last night during a show. Blackman is a jazz and rock drummer and had just finished a solo for the song Corazon Espinado, when Santana popped the question. How smooth!

The news source reports that Blackman quickly accepted, fueling a wave of cheers from the audience.

"Cindy and I are blessed to have found each other," the Mexican-born musician said in a statement. "Being in love is a gift from the universe, and the spirit and vibrations that come with it are infinitely powerful."

Santana has previously worn a wedding ring before - he was married for more than 30 years to Deborah Santana, the mother of his three children, Salvador, Angelica and Stella.

No word on if Blackman was given an engagement ring, but we're willing to bet a huge sparkler is in her future. If there's one thing Carlos knows, it's the game of love!
