You’ve Heard This Song a Million Times, But Never Like This: Two Voices Lift Up In the Arms of an Angel
If you’ve watched enough TV, it’s almost impossible to listen to “Angel” without images of abused and abandoned animals running through your head. Originally written in tribute to a friend who died of a heroin overdose, it has since become a cultural fixture of memorials, the emotional cry for peace and comfort mated to a beautiful, memorable melody. You know the words:
In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
If you love Sarah McLachlan’s heartwrending vocals as much as we do, you might also love Josh Groban as much as we do. So imagine the joy when a surprise guest walks on stage during this charity performance. The voice is unmistakable, and the duet absolutely amazing.
Watch these two massively talented singers perform a duet of this beautiful and inspiring song! What a wonderful performance!
