Grammy Winner Carlos Santana Raises Millions to Fight AIDS in Africa

July 15, 2003

Grammy winning musician Carlos Santana, who pledged the net proceeds from the U.S. leg of his "Shaman" tour to fight AIDS in Africa, wrapped up his 23-city tour Monday night before a packed audience at the Hollywood Bowl. Santana figures the tour raised at least $2 million for HIV/AIDS. "Because of you, there will be education, prevention, and there will be healing. Thank you for coming forward with your beautiful heart and your energy," Santana told the cheering crowd. The money will benefit a fund run by Los Angeles-based nonprofit Artists for a New South Africa, which supports South African groups combating the spread of HIV/AIDS. "This is basically Carlos working for a month and a half and giving away every penny he would earn to help other people," said Sharon Gelman, the group's executive director.
