WATCH: Bruno Mars Moving Tribute to an 11-Year Old Crash Victim

Posted July 1st, 2014 @ 6:41am by Chilli Amar


11-yr old Zumyah Thorpe has been through a lot. She lost her Mother and two younger sisters in a tragic car accident last year. Zumyah suffered a traumatic head injury in that same accident.

The accident left Zumyah with significant impairments to her motor and language skills...but she still was able to sing Bruno Mars' songs.

Seeing how powerfully she responded to Bruno's music, her doctors “prescribed” a daily dose and now credit the songs with her continued recuperation.

When Bruno heard about Zumyah on social media, he reached out to her and invited her to his Cleveland concert...where he serenaded her with "Just the Way You Are"...
