Brazilian gospel singer Pedro Henrique died at age 30 after collapsing onstage during a performance Wednesday night. His record label, Todah Music, released a statement Thursday morning (Dec. 14) confirming the news.
The cause of death is not yet known.
“There are very difficult situations in life for which we have no explanation,” the label wrote in Portuguese on Instagram. “We just need to understand that God’s will prevails! Pedro was a happy young man, a friend to all. An only son. A present husband and a super dedicated father. The Christian music sector is in mourning. The Todah Music family is in mourning. Heaven in chorus welcomes an illustrious son: Pedro Henrique! So long, dear brother! So long! May the Holy Spirit comfort everyone.”
Billboard Brasil reached out to Henrique’s team, who said that the wake and burial will be held in Porto Seguro, Bahia, where the artist was born. The singer lived in Guarulhos, São Paulo.
Pedro was in the city of Feira de Santana, Bahia, to participate in a private event organized by influencer Lôise Abreu. The show was broadcast live on social media networks. The influencer posted an excerpt of his performance on her profile moments before Henrique felt unwell and then collapsed onstage.
The artist was scheduled to perform in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro later this month. On Thursday (Dec. 14), Henrique’s new single “Medley: Levanta / Não Fica Assim / Descendência (Ao Vivo)” was released.
Henrique is survived by his wife, Suilan Barreto, and his 2-month-old daughter, Zoe.
