Woman Who Has Seizures When She Hears Ne-Yo's Voice Has Part of Brain Removed

The Calvin Harris/Ne-Yo Track 'Let's Go' is inoffensive enough. Unless you are Zoe Fennessy, who will suffer an epileptic seizure within seconds of Ne-Yo's vocals kicking in.

The 26-year old from England realized she had this bizarre affliction in 2011 when she heard Ne-Yo's first big hit, 'Give Me Everything' featuring Pitbull, and suffered a seizure. She had had a few seizure before, but as Ne-Yo's voice became more common, she noticed it was always triggering the attacks. She told her doctors this, and they were amazed when they played a Ne-Yo song and her epilepsy kicked right in.

'Let's Go' ubiquity in England has been a huge problem for Fennessy.

'I’ll be walking around the supermarket doing my food shopping and I have to put my earphones in to listen to my own music just in case it comes on,” she told Daily Mail of the dance track. 'Whenever I hear the first few beats of the song I have to drop whatever I am doing and run.'

In June, doctors removed a chunk of her brain (the left temporal lobe) in hopes this would cure her affliction. While it's made her attacks less severe, she still seizes up when she hears Ne-Yo.

"[Doctors] are saying it could possibly be something in the tone of his voice, something like that, but it doesn't happen when I hear Usher, or people like him who have a very similar sound. It is only him, only Ne-Yo."

"If he ever releases a greatest hits album it's going to be a nightmare," she added.
