Some people are very fast in reporting Eminems bad influence on kids and they often refer to teenagers suicides. Kaleigh Davis death (although Eminem cannot be held responsible of the young girls suicide who used to like his music and who was bullied at school) is set up as an example of what kind of damages Eminems music can cause in young peoples lives.
But do you know that Eminems music brought two young girls back to life ?
Those stories need to be told to the world, because they are extraordinary.
Both stories are amazing.
In 2001, Dione Armstrong from Northumberland had a bad car accident. She used to suffer from severe head injuries.
Dione woke up after spending 11 days on a life support machine and opened her eyes again after listening to Eminems tape, probably the Marshall Mathers LP.
Diones mom recalls :
“Eminem is helping to save her life. The minute I put on that music she was moving her hands.”
Her daughter is a huge Eminem fan whose music is part of her every day life :
“She is such a big fan. Every night she puts him on the ghetto blaster at home and goes to sleep to him.”
Aint this story wonderful ?
There is another amazing story reported by another tabloid about one year later : Claire Derbyshire(17)s life was saved by Eminem in a similar way.
According to the Star magazine, Eminem even heard about her story and sent her some presents for her recovery :
“He sent Claire Derbyshire, 17, a bandana, CDs, signed pictures of himself and a limited edition doll to help her recovery.”
Eminems gifts have seem to have helped a lot in her recovery, but the most amazing fact is certainly that no other music but Eminems had the power to wake the young girl up.
Parents next time you will be tempted to hate on Eminem, try to think about it : Eminems music could save your own kids life someday
