And that on Sunday of all days “Bigger Than the Whole Sky” sang, a song about sadness, should not be a coincidence. “Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye / You were bigger than the whole sky / You were more than just a short time,” Swift sang on stage and had an effect visibly touched, as videos of the performance show: “I’m never gonna meet / What could’ve been, would’ve been / What should’ve been you / What could’ve been, would’ve been you,” said others Lines of the song. A fan posted a recording of the emotional performance on TikTok.

Fans in the comments agree that Swift chose the song specifically for Anna Benevides. “As she sings ‘Did some force take you because I didn’t pray?’ and you can hear her holding back tears, it breaks my heart,” said one user.
After Death Swift had already mourned the 23-year-old on Instagram. ““I can’t tell you how shocked I am about this,” she wrote. “I don’t feel able to talk about it on stage because I feel overwhelmed with grief just trying,” Swift said. On stage, Swift let her music do the talking instead.
