Adele Song Wakes Girl From Coma

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, according to Telegraph.co.uk. 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." Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.

    Irrespective of your opinion about Adele, if this is true, you've got to admire the power of music.

    I think Adele and Dave Mustaine should go perform miracles together. Joking. That's really amazing.

    I think Adele's music is terribly overrated... ...But if it can bring a little girl out of a coma, then I'm all for it being played.

    That's pretty interesting. Whether it's real or fake, and whether people decide to start playing coma patients' favourite music to them or not, it's still awesome to hear that it worked for this girl. (Assuming this is all true)

    Hard to say whether it's coincidence or if it really helped. Music can create some truly amazing changes in the brain, I think it's worth some research.

If she had been a fan of Slayer, then mom singing one of their songs would have likely had the same effect. Why do we need to inflate Adele's part in this to cloud out the wonderful family connection?
    Truthfully nobody really knows what happened. Could have just been coincidence, maybe she was already waking up and her mother just started to sing at that exact moment. You don't really have any facts to base your assumption on, just like the headline.

    I'll remember that for if I get put in a coma...I'll inform my family to play a little Tool or Queens of The Stone Age to help me out.

    Making fun of the way people look doesn't make you cool it makes you sound like an a**hole. I think Adele's pretty attractive personally.

    I'm not understanding why this is drawing downvotes. Are all of these people saying you're wrong?

    Adele had 0 effect on this. It wasn't her song, it was her mom's voice. Familiar sounds, etc. like that can wake people from comas. If she and her mom enjoyed listening to slayer or metallica, she probably would've woken up too. People are easily amused.

    This same troll was bashing kreator's latest album and pretty much all DM acts because it's "not healthy." In regards to the article, I'm not a big fan of Adele (although I can admit that she has plenty of vocal talent), but this story is pretty amazing.

    Agreed, but as always, we get our comments thumbed down because we don't follow that hive mind mentality. Man this place is awful. Only good for tabs. The community is just so bad.

    Yeah, Adele news in Ultimate Guitar, BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF GUITARS IN HER MUSIC.

    Not a fan of her stuff but what a nice story.Makes a nice change from all the doom and gloom we see on here far too often.

    So does this mean if I go into a coma and someone plays Iowa il wake up? Hell, il even dance for you

    wow if Adele can do this imagine what what soundgarden could do!!

    Yeah. This place kind of loses it's luster once you realize you've been reading the same article for 7 years. And if you don't worship bands from the 70's like they were the only artists to ever exist. Fantastic place to get tabs, but I've learned to stay away form the community. I do like to chime in during times like this just in hopes I can break the monotony.

    once is a coincidence, twice you'll get me thinking.

    the song is annoying. at first i thought it was ok but then everyone started praising adele for the song like if she was the next big thing. if we didnt have shitty singers like nicki minaj an lil wayne, adele would have just been decent but since there arent real singers around she is like jesus.

    also, good thing its not KISS otherwise they'd be getting an invoice in the mail for waking her up.

    Y'know, this actually doesn't surprise me. Has anyone seen the video of the man in the nursing home when he hears some of his favorite music? Music breathes life into people. That's why we're all here.

    Checked again. I don't know how many people did I warn in this article! But if you don't like Adele, simply don't post.

    I'd rather be in a coma than have to listen to Adele. *activates flame shield*

    I would have screamed "Make it stop! Make it stop!" Then when some one say's "How can you not like adele?" I can proudly exclaim "I don't want to live on this plannet anymore!"
