Much as been said about the effects of music and medicine and how the subconscious mind can grasp messages 1000 times faster than the conscious one. Charlotte Neve is living proof of this. When the doctors told her mother to prepare for the worst after the girl went into a coma due to a rare brain hemorrhage, her mother approached the girl to give her a final hug. Adele’s song “Rolling in the Deep” was playing on the radio– a song that the pair used to sing together. Leila Neve, the girl’s mother, started singing it to her daughter and Charlotte began to smile, astounding the doctors.
Within two days, Charlotte had started speaking, could focus on colors, and managed to get up from her bed. Two months on, she is now learning to walk and talk and has regained partial sight. She has gone back to school and dance classes. Ms. Neve, from Trawden, Lancashire, said, “It’s a complete miracle. Doctors told me to say goodbye and I thought I was going to lose my little girl. 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.”
“Charlotte started smiling and 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.”
