Pop beauty Mariah Carey is thrilled to be headlining the Live 8 concert in London's Hyde Park (02JUL05), as her African roots make the cause especially pertinent to her.

The HONEY songbird, an ethnic hybrid of African-American, Venezuelan and Irish, is privileged to be part of the glittering line-up, and can't wait to help raise awareness about poverty-stricken Africa.

She enthuses, "I'm so thrilled to be taking part - it's an honour to even be asked. I have African - American heritage so it's a cause that's close to my heart.

"To create awareness is important to me and I know that (organiser) BOB GELDOF is making such an effort to make this an impactful (sic) event to inspire people.

"It's going to be a great day."
