Father Fábio de Melo revealed that he felt “the greatest pain in the world” when he lost his mother to Covid-19. Ana Maria Melo died at the age of 83 on March 27, after being hospitalized with the disease for 12 days. In a conversation with Fausto Silva in the painting Ding Dong this Sunday (4), the 50-year-old singer revealed that he decided to go to the program as a way of honoring his mother.
At Domingão do Faustão, the priest sang Jesus Christ, by Roberto Carlos. “My mother died on the same day that she gave birth to me, on a Saturday in Ramos. I was born to the sound of this song, for me today it is a great emotion to be able to sing it”, explained the religious.
Fausto Silva’s program is recorded on Fridays. According to Fábio de Melo, the attraction’s participation was already settled before he lost his mother, but he decided to go to Globo anyway, as Dona Ana Maria always watched Domingão.
“It is very special to be here today, I want to thank you for the opportunity to sing this, to sing this message of love and resurrection to so many people in this Brazil today who need to resurrect their hopes, their dreams and the most beautiful things in us, “he commented.
For Fábio de Melo, the most difficult thing about losing his mother to Covid-19 was not being able to say goodbye as he would like. “That was the greatest woman in my life, losing her in the pandemic was very difficult because I joined with the pain of thousands of people who are in need of burying the people they love without any farewell rites,” he confessed.
The priest managed to hold back the crying on the stage of the attraction. “For me it was the greatest pain in the world to look at that sealed coffin and to know that there was the body that was my body, the woman who taught me to be who I am. And not being able to say goodbye, not being able to say ‘mother, was very good to be your son ‘”, reinforced Melo.
