Bryan Adams Helps Wake German Girl From Coma

The music of Canadian rocker Bryan Adams has been known to move people plenty of times in the past — hell, even at least one ChartAttack staffer has been known to shed a nostalgic tear at the sound of "Summer Of ’69." But, for a German girl by the name of Christiane Kittel, the music of Bryan Adams just may have saved her life.

The music of Canadian rocker Bryan Adams has been known to move people plenty of times in the past — hell, even at least one ChartAttack staffer has been known to shed a nostalgic tear at the sound of "Summer Of ’69." But, for a German girl by the name of Christiane Kittel, the music of Bryan Adams just may have saved her life. Kittel fell into a coma six years ago when she mysteriously collapsed. Since then, she’s been in a vegetative state, unable to move or talk. Her parents never gave up hope that she’d awakenn and have spent nearly every day at her bedside. As a treat, a local paper paid for tickets for the Kittel family to go see Christiane’s favourite rock star, Bryan Adams, live in concert. Now, we know what you’re thinking — it seems like a bit of a waste to give premium concert tickets to a girl in a coma. Wrong! According to Reuters, during the concert Christiane began to move around (or dance) in her wheelchair and seemed "fascinated" by Adams. When returned to the clinic where she resides, Christiane allegedly continued to move and called out for her mother. Before we go and declare Bryan Adams a miracle worker, it should be noted that Christiane’s doctors noticed a few subtle responses from her in the weeks leading up to the concert and that she’s a far way from making a full recovery. Still, both her parents and her doctor credit Adams as being a catalyst for her recent improvement.
