Jessie J helped to wake a six-year-old girl from an eight day come after visiting her in Great Ormond Street Hospital and singing her favourite song at her bedside…
Tyla Atkin had been involved in a car crash in April and her injuries had been so severe, she may have never walked, talked or even smiled properly again. However, Tyla’s mother, Michelle Hart, believes that the reason her daughter made a full recovery was down to the Price Tag singer.
She said: “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.”
When Michelle heard that The Voice coach was visiting the hospital, she got in touch with Jessieís team and told them about Tyla. Jessie then spent half an hour with the young fan and even sang her favourite song Rainbow to her as she began to stir.
Michelle continued: “It was amazing. She seemed to really understand what we were going through.”
Jessie kept in touch with Tyla throughout her recovery and the schoolgirl admits that she loves the star “with all her heart”.
Tyla said: “I’ve got a picture of her. I always put my hand on it and pray.”
