Los Angeles - Dolly Parton wants to help people go to heaven.

The 9 to 5 singer doesn't want to be regarded as an "idol" and prays before every show that people can see the "light of God" in her.

She said: "I pray every day and certainly every night before I go on stage. I pray that God will let me shine with his light. And to let me be a blessing and not have people idolise me because I do not like the idol stuff.

"If they see a light in me, I want them to think it's the light of God. And even if I don't get to heaven, if I can help somebody else head in a better direction, that makes me happy."

The country music legend always tries to look for the "light of God" in people, even if she doesn't like them.

She said: "Of course I don't like everyone. But I know we're all God's children. I try to go right to that God light in everybody even if I don't think it's there.

"If a person don't look right. Or they're not acting right. I know there's that little spark in there. Sometimes I just say, 'Gee doesn't he have nice eyes?' and be done with it."
