Soon the Brazilian media announced that an accident had happened. Live was on TV to follow rescuers reaching it. First it was seen how a rescue worker retrieved a lifeless body from the wreckage and then – staggering – walked down the mountain with a coffin on the grave. A second body was later found: viewers saw patches of Mendonça allegedly worn on her latest Instagram post. Confirmation followed shortly that it was the singer.
Marília Mendonça – mother of a two-year-old son – became an icon of Brazilian sertanejo music. She has been the best listened artist in Brazil on Spotify in recent years and received another Latin Grammy in 2019.
The whole country is a marriage: fans and politics in a flock on the death of the superstar. Footballer Neymar also posts a message on Twitter.
