An 11-year-old girl who survived a car crash which killed her pregnant mother and two sisters, was serenaded by Bruno Mars, the singer who doctors credit with helping save her life.

Zumyah Thorpe suffered a severe brain injury when a drunk driver crashed into her mother's car last year, tragically killing her pregnant mother and two younger sisters.

Nurses at a Cleveland hospital played Mars' music to Zumyah every night, and doctors believe his songs played a pivotal role in her remarkable recovery.

Inspired by her tale of survival, the 28-year-old singer arranged to meet Zumyah and her grandparents before his gig on Saturday.

During the concert, the singer serenaded Zumyah with her favourite song 'Just The Way You Are' in front of 20,000 fans.

Mars can be seen jumping into the crowd and embracing the 11-year-old.

Fans at the concert admitted there were very few dry eyes in the arena after Mars' special performance.

After the concert, Mars posted a picture of the two of them on Instagram saying: "Zumyah tonight you gave my band and I something we've never felt before. you're an inspiration to the world! #WeLoveYouZumyahFollow."
