A FAN who was in a coma woke up after listening to Taiwanese singer-songwriter Sam Lee Sheng Jie’s (pic) song, reported Sin Chew Daily.
The 46-year-old Mandopop singer recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of his debut as a singer and a fan meet-and-greet session was organised.
Two weeks before the event took place, his fan club organised a “touching story” campaign which encouraged fans to pen their thoughts about the influence of Lee’s songs in their lives.
A fan who shared her experience of waking up from a coma after listening to Lee’s song Chi Xin Jue Dui (Absolutely Devoted) was selected as the winner among 200 stories shared by fans.
The fan said that she wanted to end her life when she was younger and became unconscious when she was sent to the emergency ward.
The doctors said that they could not do anything.
The girl’s parents knew that she loved listening to Lee’s songs and decided to play them for her.
She said tears flowed out from the corners of her eyes when she heard the familiar lyrics and melody.
The fan is now living happily.
