Woman Turns On Radio But Heart Drops Hearing Mysterious Message From Late Sister And Quickly Presses Record

Not a day goes by that Kristal Silva doesn't think about her big sister Kristie, who was diagnosed with kidney failure at age four. Both of her kidneys had to be removed and she spent the rest of her life on dialysis.
She endured so much pain, took a ridiculous amount of medications and underwent numerous surgeries. The two were quite close, so when Kristie passed away of kidney failure in 2009, Kristal was devastated.
The 22-year-old moved to Phoenix to be closer to family, but when she passes by places her sister loved to visit, Kristal's heart shatters all over again. But one day, something incredible happened that took Kristal by complete surprise - a sign from her sister.
Kristal often dreams about her sister, some so vivid that they seem real. As she was heading home from the gym, she passed by the hospital where her sister had passed away.
That's when Kristal received a sign from Kristie. She quickly whipped out her phone and recorded the experience through her tears.
"My hands were shaking. I was so eager to show someone. I asked my brother and he was speechless. I knew I wasn't the only one hearing it and that's when I posted it."
Kristal was listening to the 2010 club hit by Martin Solveig and Dragonette called "Hello." She swore she hear her sister's name saying, "Hey Kristie says hello."
She and her brother searched online for remixes of the song to try and figure out what exactly Kristal heard. Regardless of what they would've found, Kristal believed with all her heart that it was her sister reaching out to her, she told Arizona Central.
After Kristal shared the video of what she was hearing, hundreds of people reached out to her, sharing their own stories of how they have experienced similar situations bringing them closer to loved ones who have left this earth. Kristal has loved hearing from them.
"It fills my heart to know that that one tweet that wasn't supposed to be blown up that way has touched so many people. I know this was a sign from my sister."
The mystery of the meaningful lyrics was solved when Chris Villa, a Phoenix area DJ, explained that he had interjected his name into the song. The customized song was designed to promote an event featuring Martin Solveig.
He admitted being leery of explaining the situation to Kristal because he "didn't want to spoil it for her." But he finally reached out to her after he learned she believed it likely was a remix.
"I felt like she wouldn't be so upset and find comfort in all the stars aligning for me to be there to play that for her. Even though it's not her sister's name, considering everything, I think I was meant to be on air that day to help send her some comfort."
Now that she knows the truth about the remix, Kristal still finds comfort in what she believes she heard. She also greatly appreciates everyone who reached out to her in their outpouring of support.
