Earlier this year, there was a report that Adele's music had helped wake a little girl from a week-long coma. Now, it appears that Jessie J's music has similar healing qualities. After Jessie sang to a six-year-old car crash victim, her mom says, the little girl emerged from a coma and is now doing fine.
The British paper The Sun reports back in April, doctors feared little Tyla Atkin would never be able to walk, talk or smile again after a truck smashed into a car in which she was a passenger. Doctors placed her in an eight-day coma, and during that time, Tyla's mom, Michelle , found out that Jessie J happened to be visiting their London hospital. Jessie stopped by the ward and sat next to Tyla's bed, singing the girl her favorite song, "Rainbow," from Jessie's album Who You Are .
According to The Sun , Tyla began to wake up within hours, and over the next few days, she was moving, talking and even singing. Now, she's almost completely healed. Her mother Michelle tells the paper, “Doctors say you have to keep talking to people in comas to keep them focused and connected. I believe Jessie J saved Tyla. She gave my daughter back to me. I’m so grateful.”
Jessie has since continued to monitor Tyla's progress, and the girl tells the paper that she loves the singer "with all her heart," adding, “I’ve got a picture of her. I always put my hand on it and pray.”
