Adele’s Music Awakens Young Girl From Coma
Add "miracle worker" to the ever-growing list of accomplishments Adele has chalked up in her still-young career. When a 7-year-old British girl named Charlotte Neve was hospitalized recently with a rare brain hemorrhage, doctors told her mother Leila that it would take a miracle for her daughter to recover. But after a week in a coma, that's exactly what happened -- thanks to the music of none other than Adele.
Charlotte's mom had all but given up on her daughter one day when 'Rolling in the Deep' came on the hospital radio, and Leila, remembering that she used to sing the tune with her daughter, joined along. Suddenly, Charlotte smiled, much to the amazement of her doctors.
A few days later, she was starting to talk and was able to get out of bed. That was two months ago, and now Charlotte is out of the hospital and relearning how to speak and walk. She's even returned to school and is taking dance classes again -- all of which her mom credits to the music of Adele.
"I climbed into her hospital bed to give her a cuddle -- she was wired up to machines and unresponsive -- and Adele came on the radio," Leila tells the Telegraph. "I started singing it to her because she loves her and we used to sing that song together."
"Charlotte started smiling, and I couldn't believe it," she continues. "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."
So while Adele's ascent from unknown singer to international superstar has been nothing short of incredible, her impact on Charlotte Neve literally has been miraculous. "A day or two after the Adele incident ... she literally went from smiling and being giddy to standing up in bed," says her mom. "It was a miracle."
After that, we can't even imagine what Adele could do for an encore. Has she ever thought of curing cancer?
