Press representatives, including the press staff of CNN station CNN Brasil, confirmed Gal Costa’s passing. At the age of 77, she passed away.
Her official Instagram account’s black and white photo also announced her passing.
She was regarded as Brazil’s top vocalist and was well-known for her lovely voice. She was one of the singers who established the singing industry in Brazil and popularized the country’s music abroad.
Gal Costa passed away on November 9th, and her passing occurred in So Paulo, according to a statement posted on her official account the day following her passing: “We are announcing to you with deep grief and a broken heart that she passed away this morning, November 9th. Her funeral arrangements will be revealed at a later time. We appreciate everyone’s kind words and support at this extremely trying time.
Costa’s family has yet to disclose the cause of death on any social media site or news outlet; perhaps they are hesitant to make a comment regarding her untimely passing.
Her passing caused great sorrow in her native country, and her friend, family, and friends were ill-equipped to deal with the painful news of her passing.
According to insiders, the Brazilian singer underwent a Nascal surgical treatment three weeks ago, and she was recovering when she passed away.
Gal Costa recently postponed her performance at a music festival, which raised some issues. A few hours later, her manager disclosed that “She postponed her show due to [her doctor’s] advise to relax after [her] surgery,” in which a neuron was removed from her right nasal cavity.
She wanted to go back and play on stage once more, and she was planning to do so in Sao Paulo in December, but she passed away before then.
