U Saved Me is a gospel song by R. Kelly. Taken as the title track single from U Saved Me (a part of the Happy People/U Saved Me double disc album), it reached number 52 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 14 on the Hot R&B and Hip-Hop Songs charts. The song later appeared on Kelly's 2010 album, Epic.
The music video is directed by Julien Christian Lutz.
Kelly sang this song live for the first time at the 2005 Soul Train Awards Show.
Kelly narrates four real-life stories based on trials and tribulations of individuals and how they turned it over to God so that He can save them. The first verse describes a drunk driver who nearly lost his life in a car accident, the second verse describes a person on unemployment and has trouble looking for work, the third verse describes an 18-year-old drug dealer who was involved in a shootout when a drug deal went bad, and the fourth verse describes a person diagnosed with cancer who reached out to his mother to pray for him. In each situation, they were thankful to be given a second chance at life.
