Daniel Pellegrine, known as MC Daleste, was tragically shot and killed while performing in Campinas, Brazil, and the incident was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube. Almost 4 million people have watched the unsettling clip since it went up this weekend. The 20-year-old artist was rushed to the hospital but died early Sunday afternoon. There is no information out on suspects or arrests.
According to Billboard, a friend posted on on Pellegrine’s Facebook wall, saying, “I hope God gives strength to the family, friends, and fans of my good friend MC Daleste, a guy who only wanted to convey joy to everyone through his music. It is a pity that the peace which we dream of, we often only get when we close our eyes.”
