Mariah Carey has been hailed a lifesaver by R&B superstar Mary J Blige, because her music inspires millions to live out their dreams.

The 'No more drama' hitmaker is convinced Carey's uplifting music has the power to shape happiness, and credits the 'Hero' diva's music with helping her through her drug and drink difficulties.

She says: "I love Mariah Carey. Mariah's music saved little ghetto children's lives.

"Songs like 'Visions of love' gave us hope and we would sing those songs and try to hit every note like Mariah... which we can't.

"I don't think she knows what a big part she plays in Mary J Blige's life. She's just a beautiful person."
