A 79-year-old Michigan woman whose first words after emerging from a semi-coma that lasted five years were, "I want to go to a Bob Seger concert," got her wish.

The Flint Journal reports Evie Branan cheered, threw her hands in the air and danced during Seger's concert Thursday night at The Palace of Auburn Hills. She also met Seger and his family, talked with crew and band members and received VIP treatment for the show.

Branan is from Flint Township. She called the night "the happiest I've been in a long time."

Branan came out of the coma on May 7, 2011. She had suffered a stroke that led to her becoming a resident of Willowbrook Manor's long-term care unit. She couldn't speak, move or eat on her own.
