Adele’s Music Can Wake People from Comas
Well, ok, I don’t know if that’s universally true, so don’t hold me to that. I don’t know that Adele‘s music can wake up everyone who’s in a coma. However, I do know that her music did bring one little girl back to consciousness, and I think that’s good enough for now.
Eight-time Grammy Award winner Adele can happily add miracle-worker to her resume, after her hit single “Rolling in the Deep” woke a seven-year-old British girl from a coma.
On April 13, Charlotte Neve suffered a brain hemorrhage, and was rushed to Leeds hospital, where she underwent two operations. When she slipped into a coma, doctors informed her mother Leila, 31, that she was not expected to survive. Then, miraculously, after lying comatose for a week, Adele’s hit single came on the hospital radio, and Leila, recalling her daughter’s fondness for the tune, sang along. To the amazement of her doctors, Charlotte broke into a smile.
“Charlotte started smiling, and I couldn’t believe it,” Leila told the Telegraph. “It was the first time she had reacted to anything since the hemorrhage. The nurses were astounded and told me to keep singing, and she smiled again. The nurses said it was like I ‘unlocked her’ and from that day she started getting better and better.”
Several days later, she began talking, and was even able to get out of her hospital bed. Charlotte is now recovering at home, where she is learning to walk and talk again, has returned to school, and has even taken up dance classes again, all thanks to Adele’s song.
“A day or two after the Adele incident … she literally went from smiling and being giddy to standing up in bed,” she continued. “It was a miracle.”
If you didn’t love Adele before, then I really don’t know what’s wrong with you. But if you don’t love her now, then you definitely need to look into growing a heart.
