Singer Elizabeth Woolridge Grant, better known as Lana Del Rey, visited the Christ the Redeemer statue on Sun., May 28.

The 37-year-old singer performed at the MITA Festival in Rio de Janeiro on May 27.  She then spent her Sunday visiting the world-famous statue in Brazil.

Some Twitter accounts following the singer's artistic life published photos and videos of her visit.

One video shows the singer visiting the statue with her team.

In addition to taking pictures with her team, Del Rey went to the chapel of Our Lady of Aparecida, which is located inside the statue.

Brazilian news out let G1 reported that the singer received a blessing from Fr. João Damasceno of Christ the Redeemer.

Del Rey's brother, Charlie Grant, also climbed the statue.

Is Lana Del Rey Catholic?

In a 2014 interview with Complex Magazine, Del Rey said she was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school. However, she said she felt more attracted to hymns than religion.

"Jesus—I mean, being raised Catholic, it was just a way of life. Spirituality and religion were strong," she told the magazine. "I was in Catholic school until I was 13. Like a lot of other people, I think foundationally I was hymn inspired—musical hymns, not Him, Jesus."

There is no explicit evidence that the American singer publicly defines herself as Catholic.

Say a prayer for Lana Del Rey!
