Santana singer/pastor Returns to Huntington Beach

Former Santana singer Leon Patillo (pictured above with Refuge Calvary Senior Pastor Bill Welsh) recently sang at a special Men’s Prayer Breakfast in Huntington Beach. The visiting vocalist, also a former longtime pastor at the Rock House Church on the Queen Mary, said, “I went from Santana to Hosanna.” The Las Vegas resident became an evangelist and singer of Christian music, like “Love Around the World” and “Hands of Praise.” He sang his hit, “Dance Children Dance,” before more than 150 excited church members. Patillo came here at the request of his friend Bob Anderson, a Refuge member. Photo by Chris MacDonald
