Brazil Country Singer Marilia Mendonca Killed In Small Airplane Crash

Brazilian country singer Marilia Mendonca was killed on Friday, November 5 in a plane crash.

She died along with her manager and aide when the small airplane they were traveling in crashed in the state of Minas Gerais.

Mendonca’s press office said in a statement that her producer, Henrique Ribeiro, aide Abicieli Silveira Dias Filho as well both the pilot and co-pilot of the plane were also killed in the crash.

Marilia Mendonca had posted on social media a video boarding the plane earlier on Friday but could not reach her destination.

The airplane departed from the midwestern city of Goiania heading to Caratinga, where 26-year-old Mendonca had a concert scheduled for later on Friday.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Twitter that the whole country was shocked by the news, adding that Mendonca was one of the greatest artists of her generation.

Bolsonaro tweeted:

“We feel like we have lost someone very close to us.”
