CUMMING, Georgia — It’s back to school time and that means many parents will struggle to get their children out of bed.

A mother in Cumming, Georgia called on syndicated radio show “The Bert Show” to help get her daughter up for school.

The show sent a five-piece jazz band into 10-year-old Sophie’s room to wake her up. Her mother was standing there with a phone.

The band did the trick.

Sophie sat up and looked stunned as the band played loudly in her room.

When asked by the radio show if she was up and ready for school, Sophie answered, “Yeah.”
