Taylor Swift paid tribute after her Eras Tour tragedy last week during the extreme heat in Brazil as 23-year-old fan, Ana Clara Benevides, languished in the front row.
She was reportedly administered CPR at the scene and transported to the hospital where she suffered a second cardiac arrest and unfortunately died.
Although the 33-year-old singer shared a handwritten note with fans on social media as soon as she heard the news, the Grammy winner took it a step further during her show on Sunday with a special tribute.
Fans of Taylor’s set list will know that she has set aside time in each show for surprise songs that change for each performance.
On Sunday, the singer broke down in tears during her surprise second song, Bigger Than the Whole Sky, which is a song about grief.

The emotional lyrics include: “Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye / You were bigger than the whole sky / You were just a little time.
“I’ll never meet / What could have been, it would have been / What you should have been / What could have been, would you have.”
The former Hollywood star wrote on Instagram as soon as she heard about Ana’s death: “I can’t believe I’m writing these words, but it’s with a broken heart that we lost a trailer earlier tonight before my show. I can’t even tell you how devastated I am about this,’ she posted.
“I won’t be able to talk about this from the stage because I feel overwhelmed by grief when I even try to talk about it.
“I want to say now that I feel this loss deeply, and my broken heart goes out to her family and friends. This is the last thing I ever thought would happen when we decided to bring the show to Brazil.”
Taylor also postponed Saturday night’s show due to the sweltering temperatures and shared her appreciation for those who braved the heat and rain to join her on Friday.
Other footage from the concert showed the singer demanding water from stadium staff to hand out to fans amid Brazil’s unprecedented heatwave, which briefly brought the gig to a halt as she threw bottles of water into the crowd .
Another clip from the front rows sparked concern across social media as the singer waved a note with a smile on her face before turning around with a desperate look on her face as she struggled to breathe in the heat.
