Brazilian gospel singer Pedro Henrique collapsed and died Wednesday mid-way though a live

Brazilian gospel singer Pedro Henrique collapsed and died Wednesday mid-way though a live concert. He was 30.

TMZ, which obtained footage of the incident, reports Henrique was in the city of Feira de Santana for a private “religious” performance when he collapsed in front of the crowd mid-concert, according to Brazilian authorities.

Footage shows Pedro interacting with the crowd and singing the song “Vai Ser Tão Lindo” when he appears to lose his balance … falling backward in front of his band before falling heavily onto the stage.

Once Pedro collapsed nearby fans and staff rushed over to help him as the horrified crowd watched in shock.

The performer’s label, Todah Music, announced on Instagram Henrique had suffered a heart attack, though an official cause of death was not immediately confirmed.

“There are very difficult situations in life for which we have no explanation,” the label wrote in a Portuguese-language Instagram post.

“We just need to understand that God’s will prevails! Pedro was a happy young man, a friend to all… Heaven in chorus welcomes an illustrious son: Pedro Henrique! So long, dear brother! So long! May the Holy Spirit comfort everyone.”

He is survived by his wife and 2-month-old daughter, Zoe.

Henrique started singing at the age of three and began performing professionally in 2015 after he posted several songs on his YouTube channel, the Daily Mail reports.
