A small string orchestra and choir performed one of the most famous songs of Gilberto Chega de Saudade, when his body was displayed at the entrance to the Municipal Theater of Rio de Janeiro.
Earlier on Monday morning, his wife Maria do Seu stood next to the body while the fans passed to say goodbye. Ex-wife Claudia Faisol was also present. Huge funeral wreaths were lined behind the coffin of Gilberto with posters on which was written by the Master of Masters Juan Gilberto and All the Love for Our Genius, Juan. One fan was standing on the steps of the theater, holding a self-made sign with the inscription: Go with God, Juan Gilberto.
João Gilberto, a two-time Grammy winner, was also honored in the finals of the Copa America football tournament held in Rio de Janeiro.
Tens of thousands of fans stopped for a moment for Gilberto, before the game began on Sunday, and pop star Anitta ended its performance, shouting: Light to the master, Juan Gilberto!
In a joint statement, the Recording Academy and the Latin Recording Academy stated that he was the boss-nova music architect and that his innovative style and mastery in the art of music helped turn the genre into a world-wide phenomenon.
An 88-year-old man died at his home in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday.
