Tributes from fellow players

Andy Timmons

"I'm devastated and saddened to hear of the senseless loss of Camilla
and her mother. My heart and prayers are with her family and all her loved ones.
It's clear from the video that she had great passion for music and loved her guitar.
I'm honored that she recorded my song Gone. It certainly is influenced by my love of Brazilian music
and people.
I'm so, so sorry.
With love and healing,
Andy Timmons"

R.I.P. Camila, your music will live on!
15 videos, 1:01:46 duration,

Another tribute added 15/01/2013


  1. It saddens me to think that this was all about money. Why must people be so savage about something so replaceable like money? The human life is far more valuable!

  2. I know what you mean Wayde, this is just terrible. I was just so deeply shocked when I heard this afternoon. Camila seems such a happy soul, who would not harm anyone.

  3. I've met her and I must confess, it's starting to really sink now. She was very passionate about her playing and music. She would listen to everyone so she could improve. It made no difference to her, she wanted to prove that women can have their own way to play the guitar. We're organizing a Youtube video featuring several good guitar players that knew her (or her work). When the link for the video is ready, be sure to check it out.

    1. Neno, please let me know about your plans and I will see If I can help you in any way, to get guitar players from around the world to help with a tribute.

  4. Just discovered (21 april) this girl and her guitar. Amazing talent. So sad.No words.

  5. how on earth do these things happen....i am appauled by this atrocity...i really hope the douche who did it...was the guy that had his face eaten off in miami...but then again that might be too good for that lame..waste of good air that a smart loving gentle person could be using to breathe...there should be a group devoted to finding this retard and electrocuting his balls til his eyes blast out of his dumb and oversized empty head.....

  6. Camilla, your beauty -- physical, mental, emotional, psychic, spiritual and musical -- will live on in our hearts as your sweet recordings continue to drift into other people's lives over time. Your life -- like John Lennon's -- will be remembered by those who appreciate and resonate with your music sensibilities and your soul. You have gone back to God, Camilla, where you are restored. And those who are still here, are restored by your music and the sweet memories of you and your music. Thank you for sharing your all-too-short time with us. -- Herb Ernst, Blairsville, Georgia USA

  7. I have her added on my youtube channel ... I'll save her videos. I'm very sad, things like that should never happen, especially to people like her.

    it's for her, i spoke to her a few times on fb

  9. how very very sad, I just found out and I am so sad for her and her Mom
