Are you ready for the most heartwarming story you're going to read all week? A 7-year-old from the small village of Trawden in Lancashire, England, has woken up from a coma after hearing Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" on the radio in her hospital bed.

According to the Telegraph, Charlotte Neve suffered a brain hemorrhage in her sleep in April after a night of watching movies with her mother and older sister. The hemorrhage almost killed her, and she was brought to the hospital. Her mother was told to prepare for the worst and climbed into bed to be with her young daughter when Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" came on the radio. Charlotte's mother began to sing the song to her, and Charlotte started to smile.

Two days later, Charlotte could speak and managed to get out of the bed. Her mother 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. The nurses said it was like I 'unlocked her' and from that day she started getting better and better."

Now, Charlotte is back to school and dancing again, although she still suffers some lingering cognitive symptoms. Amazing, right? Let us know in the comments if you know of any inspiring Adele stories!
