After a long period of withdrawal due to the Covid-19 pandemic, singer Marília Mendonça lived the return of concerts and was preparing for a tour in Europe, before having her life interrupted by a plane accident this Friday (5) .
The singer had concerts scheduled in London, England; in Brussels, Belgium; and in Lisbon and Porto, Portugal, this November. According to information from the press office, Marília Mendonça was excited about the resumption.
That year, the artist had made only five presentations, the last one in Sorocaba (SP), last Monday (1st). Marília Mendonça was going to the first of five shows in the state of Minas Gerais when she suffered the plane accident, along with her uncle and advisor Abicieli Silveira Dias Filho, producer Henrique Ribeiro, pilot Geraldo Martins de Medeiros and co-pilot Tarciso People Viana. Everybody died.
The presentation would take place in Caratinga on Friday. The aircraft in which the group was staying crashed about three kilometers from the city’s airport, where they were scheduled to disembark. This Saturday (6), she would be in Ouro Branco (MG).
After the schedules in Minas Gerais, Marília Mendonça would perform on a cruise, on November 22nd, before leaving for Europe. According to information from the singer’s advisors, she was also looking forward to next year, when she would do the Festival das Patroas with the duo Maiara and Maraisa. The three are some of the main exponents of ‘feminejo’, which gave space to the perspective and interpretation of women in the sertanejo.
The promotion of the album “Patroas” was even promoted in Times Square, in New York. “I’ve been looking at this photo for 1 hour and thinking about what to say and I don’t have any existing words that represent what I’m feeling. It would make a new dictionary, if I had to describe how grateful I feel, first to God, to my bosses and to my team… My chest is exploding. Miara and Maraisa, you have no idea of the movie that is going through my head right now. Not even in our biggest dreams did we imagine that we would have the work of our lives stamped on one of the most famous avenues in the world. I love you!”, published Marília on October 21st.
This Saturday morning, Maraisa published a message about the death of Marília Mendonça: “Lord, give me strength because I know that this is my sister’s wish. Lord, sustain me so that I may be a strength to those who need me.”
