Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro he said the “whole country” was in “shock” at the news of her death, while Rio de Janeiro Governor Claudio Castro described her loss as a “tragic accident”.

“Young and talented, Marília has been the protagonist of a new chapter of Brazilian country music and an inspiration to more singers in this segment. The country is shocked and regrets this loss, which came too soon,” Castro said in a press release.
