Marília Mendonça, buried this Saturday (6) in Goiânia after the plane crash she suffered on Friday (5) on her way to a concert, contributed to the change in country music, evaluated the curator and music critic Sérgio Martins in an interview with CNN in this Saturday.
“What she changed, like Maiara and Maraísa and Paula Mattos, but that no one did like Marília, is that country music has always been essentially male, and they started to sing from a female point of view: the hardships of being the a betrayed woman, of having a bad marriage, of a love that is bad for you, of being the other. And, surprisingly, the female audience, instead of repelling these artists, identified themselves with the pains they sang”, she said.
Martins lamented the precocious and tragic death of Marília, and stated that the singer still had a lot to do.
We lost a great artist, a person who still had a contribution and who was admired by artists in the pop sector. Getting out of the picture in such a tragic way is hard enough; for a singer who had a spectacular career ahead of her, it hurts even more

The aircraft pilot, Geraldo Martins de Medeiros, and the co-pilot, Tarciso Pessoa Viana, who also died in the plane crash, will be veiled in private ceremonies.
The accident happened in Piedade de Caratinga, in Vale do Rio Doce, in the west of Minas Gerais. The plane crashed at a distance of three kilometers from the airport in Caratinga, the city where the singer would perform.
