On Sunday, February 13, Carlos Santana was honored at the 2000 Bay Area 42nd Grammy Nominees Celebration. The event was held at Spectrum Gallery in San Francisco, CA. Presenting Carlos with the Recording Academy's President's Merit Award was Michael Green.
The room was packed with members of the San Francisco chapter of NARAS along with celebrities, friends and families. However, while Carlos spoke the room remained still. His speech touched all of our hearts.
All of us from Santana Management that attended the festivities were very proud of Carlos and his wife, Deborah. Their vision, love and compassion have brought so much to our lives.
There were twenty-six other Bay Area musicians that were nominated for the 42nd Grammy Awards honored that evening.
