Washington, Jan 21 : American R and B singer Mary J. Blige is hoping and praying that Amy Winehouse is able to get over her drugs problem as she believes that the future of music depends on the singer.
Blige feels that the music industry is heading for a rebirth and that talents like Amy Winehouse are needed to help it in recovering from the years of "drought".
"Someone like Amy Winehouse is so important to the music business right now. It's very painful (to see her battle drugs). I hope she makes it," Contactmusic reported her as telling Fleetwood MAC star Stevie Nicks in the latest issue of Interview magazine.
"I think it (the music industry) kind of got lost and we ended up in a drought for a while, but I see it making a turn, so instead of music being just synthetic, we'll see it going back to actual instruments," she added.
"That's what I'm hoping for anyway, because that's the kind of music I'm making," she concluded.
