A seven-year-old girl named Charlotte woke up from a coma after she heard singer Adele's chart topping number 'Rolling in the Deep'

Charlotte had suffered a brain hemorrhage which left her in a coma and just as doctors had given up hope, the little girl shocked everyone as she smiled when Adele's song started playing on the radio.


Her mother Leila Neve, who was cuddling her daughter, heard the song and started singing it to her as it is her favourite number and soon she realised that Charlotte was smiling. "I couldn't believe it. 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," Neve said. Within a few days, Charlotte was able to get out of bed and after some physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy, she was sent back home.

"It was like she was rebooting. She was allowed to come home for a weekend to see how she was and the first thing she said was 'home sweet home'," the mother added. Although Charlotte has been left with some blindness and memory loss, she is attending school again.
