Brazilian sertanejo duo Jorge & Mateus have been trending all day on YouTube with their “Live Na Garagem” live performance. Never mind that this livestream was an impressive four hours long, or that it happened on Saturday, where at one point 3 million people were simultaneously tuned in. By Monday (April 6), the video on the duo’s YouTube channel had nearly 40 million views.
Such is the power of what may be Brazil’s most popular music act right now. Aside from playing hits like “Propaganda” and “Tijoläo,” Jorge & Mateus got fans to donate 172 tons of food and 10,000 bottles of hand sanitizer, which will be donated to families in need. The duo also stressed the importance of staying home and maintaining social distancing.
“We’re doing this so you stay home, but stay home with music, so you can stay happy,” said Mateus.
