All Santana Tour Proceeds To Fight AIDS

Grammy-winning guitarist Carlos Santana has been working for free this summer so that those engaged in the fight against AIDS may benefit. Santana, who pledged the net proceeds from the U.S. leg of his “Shaman” tour to the fight against the AIDS pandemic in Africa, wrapped up the 23-city tour Monday night with a Hollywood Bowl show before a packed audience.

He estimates the tour raised at least $2 million.

Sharon Gelman, the group’s executive director, called Santana’s pledge, “a very significant contribution.” “This is basically Carlos working for a month and a half and giving away every penny he would earn to help other people,” she said.
