Andy Vargas struck world-wide fame over a decade ago when he became the lead singer for the iconic rock band Santana.
For Andy, being a singer was truly a dream come true, that he carried from childhood and was eager to fulfill. The first time he saw Michael Jackson perform on television at the legendary Motown 25th Anniversary special, Andy knew that’s what he had to do with the rest of his life. For Vargas, singing and touring with Carlos Santana has been a thrill ride, as he has helped to fill arenas and venues around the world, receiving the accolades, adoration and compliments of numerous fans that he inspires through the music.
