The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light and Milagro Charity by Carlos Santana

There is no greater reward than working from your heart, and making a difference in the world.

“In 1967 in San Francisco, just a few weeks after the Summer of Love, a young Mexican guitarist took the stage at the Fillmore Auditorium and played a blistering solo that announced the arrival of a prodigious musical talent. Two years later — after he played a historic set at Woodstock — the world came to know the name Carlos Santana, his sensual and instantly recognizable guitar sound, and the legendary band that blended electric blues, psychedelic rock, Latin rhythms, and modern jazz, and that still bears his name.”

- The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light by “Carlos Santana”

Born in Jalisco, Mexico, Carlos Santana is known across the world as one of the greatest guitarists of all time, and as the winner of 10 Grammys and 3 Latin Grammys. His growth in popularity was especially evident through the 90’s, when his unique blues-sounding guitar riffs were sought after by many of the top artists across a variety of music genres. However, very few people know that Santana had to struggle quite a bit before achieving success as a musician. This struggle, and the struggles he witnessed of the people around him, always stayed close to his heart. Known as an international rock star and performer, it would be easy for one to assume that Carlos Santana has lost his connection with his humble beginnings. However, Santana has always stayed very deeply grounded in his roots and his beliefs. The results of his efforts are clearly seen in his charity, The Milagro Foundation.

Milagro was started by Santana and his close-knit family in 1998 and has helped hundreds of children across the globe since its inception.
