Brazilian sertanejo star Marília Mendonça died Friday (Nov. 5) in a small plane crash as she was on her way to perform a concert in the state of Minas Gerais. She was 26 years old.
A superb contralto with a deep, soulful voice that brought a touch of international pop sentiment to the traditional, accordion-accompanied music she sang, Mendonca had a massive following in her native Brazil. It was amplified even during the pandemic, where she showcased her vocals via a series of livestreams from her living room.
From 2015’s “Infiel” to “Esqueça-me Se For Capaz,” released just two weeks ago, here are three timeless Mendonça hits to remember her by.
2. “Esqueça-me Se For Capaz,” with Maiara e Maraisa
3. “Troca de Calçada”
