Music has an amazing power to heal.  The music of Bruno Mars is making a big difference for 11-Year Old Zumyah Thorpe.  She was seriously injured a few years ago in a tragic car crash.  A drunk driver crashed into her car killing her pregnant mother and older sister. Zumyah and her 2 younger sisters survived, but Zumyah suffered a traumatic brain injury. 

She had serious impairments to her language and motor skills. Her family and doctors were shocked when she woke up from her coma and began singing Bruno Mars’ song “Just The Way You Are.”

The healing power of music was evident as the doctors realized that singing the song and knowing all the words helped speed up her recovery. Bruno Mars heard about the story and wanted to do something special for her. 

During his recent show in Cleveland, he made a special dedication to Zumyah and sang "Just the Way You Are" especially for her.  The touching video is featured below.
