Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men helped supermodel Gisele Bundchen learn how to speak English.

Th Brazilian beauty moved to the U.S. to pursue her modeling career when she was a teenager, but she struggled to learn the language and turned to music to help her.

She says, "My wonderful cassette tapes, Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey, saved my life! They were great teachers, so I have to thank them one day, if I ever meet them in person. They were very inspiring."
