Are you looking for a heartwarming story that will fill your soul with chicken soup and care bears? Yes? Great! Because this story about how an Adele song brought back a 7-year-old girl from the edge of death will make you feel like a butterfly who sells glitter for a living.
Back in April, 7-year-old Charlotte Neve suffered a hemorrhage that left her with severe bleeding on the brain. While the doctors managed to stop the bleeding, the damage from the hemorrhage left her in a coma. They told her mother to start preparing for the worst.
Her mother did as told and started singing along to the Adele song, “Rolling in the Deep,” as it played on the radio in her daughter’s hospital room. She cuddled up next to her daughter on the hospital bed as she sang the song — one of Charlotte’s favorites — to her.
“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. I started singing it to her because she loves her and we used to sing that song together.”
And then the miracle happened. Charlotte, a child that doctors predicted would soon die, smiled as her mother sang. Two days later she started speaking again and could move from her bed. And now two months later, she’s getting back into her regular routine of school and dance classes.
All thanks to “Rolling in the Deep,” a song we all started out loving — and then love/hating it when it got insanely overplayed. And now, hopefully, after hearing this story, loving again.
I mean, the song can bring a child back from the dead. Who knows what it could do if you’re having a bad day or trying to get someone’s attention. Playing it could give you the powers of Teen Witch, without all that lesson-learning about misusing power.
So let’s all blast it today, in honor of the miracle and all the almighty Adele.
