As per news report of NDTV, The crash also killed the Latin Grammy-winner's producer and one of her uncles -- who worked with the singer -- as well as the two pilots. Authorities have launched an investigation, said local police chief Ivan Lopes. "We still cannot say what caused the plane to crash, but there is damage that suggests that the plane collided with a (power) antenna before falling," Lopes said at a press conference. Local TV showed footage of firefighters working to remove the bodies from the plane, which crashed in a rocky area next to a waterfall. The accident took place in a rural area near the city of Caratinga, where the artist was scheduled to give a concert later Friday.
