Carlos Santana, Wife To Perform NBA Finals National Anthem

Ten-time Grammy Award winner Carlos Santana and his wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, will perform the national anthem Sunday before Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

With the Golden State Warriors leading the Cleveland Cavaliers 1-0, the Santanas have ties to both local regions.

Carlos Santana is from San Francisco and established himself on the Bay Area music scene with his Latin-rock sound before going on to sell more than 100 million records with hits such as “Oye Como Va,” ‘‘Maria Maria,” and “Smooth.”
