A 23-year-old fan named Ana Clara Benevides died after attending a Taylor Swift concert on Nov. 17 in Brazil.

The family wore T-shirts with Benevides’ face on them in her honor, and they were also seen standing in the VIP section during the show. Swift expressed deep grief over the tragedy, and she postponed a subsequent concert due to extreme temperatures.
