Grammy-winning musician Carlos Santana, who pledged the net proceeds from the U.S. leg of his "Shaman" tour to fight AIDS in Africa, wrapped up his 23-city tour Monday night before a packed audience at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Santana says the tour raised at least $2 million for anti-HIV efforts. "Because of you, there will be education, prevention, and there will be healing," he told the Los Angeles crowd. "Thank you for coming forward with your beautiful heart and your energy." The money will benefit a new HIV fund established by Los Angeles-based nonprofit Artists for a New South Africa.
