Adam Loftis, 9, can't sing. He can't even speak. But according to WOWK-TV  in West Virginia, this little boy with Down's syndrome, epilepsy and breathing problems copes with events by listening to Adele.
 
"When we take him to get his blood checked at the hospital and there's poking and prodding, I can turn on the music and boom - he's focused," Adam's mother, Amy, told the news station . "He doesn't even flinch."
 
When Adele announced her tour, they immediately tried to buy tickets for the handicapped seats in Nashville but it sold out in minutes.
 
According to WOWKTV , the family has the money - all they need is the seats.
 
The station is spreading information about a campaign to help Adam and his family by using the hashtag #HelpAdamSeeAdele. They're hoping the singer hears his story and finds a way to turn this dream into reality.
