Rock guitarist Carlos Santana and his wife Deborah will announce today they will donate all of the money from Santana's U.S. summer tour to the Amandla AIDS fund run by Artists for a New South Africa. It is believed to be the first time an artist has donated the entire net proceeds from a tour to charity. "Basically, this is a call to action," said Santana's publicist Michael Jensen. Details of the unique initiative will be announced at a press conference to be attended by Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond M. Tutu, Arista Records President L.A. Reid, and actress Alfre Woodard. Santana's Shaman Tour runs from June 13 to July 14. "Our attitude is that the more tickets we sell, the more money we'll generate," Jensen said.
