Carlos Santana collapses during concert in Michigan

Guitarist Carlos Santana collapsed in the middle of a concert in Michigan on Tuesday.

“Medical personnel on stage. Crowd asked to pray for him because of a ‘serious medical‘ issue,” tweeted Roop Raj, a journalist with Fox 2 News.

Video posted to social media showed a crowd on the stage after the collapse.

Santana, who is 74, was performing at the Pine Knob Music Festival and appeared to wave at fans as he was helped off the stage. People in the audience could be heard cheering him on as he left. Santa was scheduled to perform with Earth, Wind & Fire for a “Miraculous Supernatural Tour” stop in Clarkston.

Santana was born in Mexico. After his family moved to San Francisco in the 1960s, he formed a band, according to CBS News. Ever since, he has established himself as a well-known presence in the rock band scene, blending Afro-Latin beats and electric blues, the report added.

“Consistently recognized as one of the best guitarists of all time since his band’s breakout at Woodstock in ’69, his unmistakable sound and genre-transcending collaborations in recent years have made him a household name around the world,” said a Cincinnati Enquirer interview report ahead of a performance in Ohio scheduled for this weekend.
