American singer Taylor Swift’s first show in Brazil, on Friday night (17) in Rio de Janeiro, included a declaration of love in Portuguese, thanks for the tribute paid at Christ the Redeemer and even a pause to help a fan who was passing by bad.
After shouts from the audience that filled the Nilton Santos Stadium, Engenhão, of “Taylor, I love you!”, the singer responded in Portuguese: “I love you”.
The blonde also made a point of thanking her fans for the projection made on the statue of Christ the Redeemer, in Rio de Janeiro, and said that she came to believe it was Photoshop. “This can’t be true, it must be Photoshop, do you understand what I’m saying? It’s like the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me,” she declared.
“And this only happened because many of you donated food and water. I’m so proud of you. Thank you so much for everything you did,” Taylor said.
In less than 24 hours, fans of the pop star reached their goal and donated more than R$180,000 to the Archdiocesan Sanctuary of Christ the Redeemer, in Rio de Janeiro. The donations were made to enable the projection of a welcome message to the artist, which occurred on Thursday night (16).
Taylor also interrupted the show to ask for assistance to a girl who was feeling ill in the audience due to the strong heat.
After spending five months touring the United States, the artist brought the shows to Latin America. After passing through Mexico and Argentina, she disembarks in Brazil.
“The Eras Tour” arrived in Brazil this Friday, with the presentation in Rio de Janeiro, at Engenhão. The singer also sings in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday (18) and Sunday (19), with all performances sold out. Afterwards, she will head to São Paulo, for shows at Allianz Parque, on the 24th, 25th and 26th of November.
