Artist’s Information:

 Sarah McLachlan (born Sarah Ann McLachlan January 28, 1968 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) is a Grammy-winning musician, singer and songwriter.

She is known for the emotional sound of her ballads. Some of her most popular songs include “Angel”, “Building a Mystery”, “Adia”, “Possession”, “Fallen”, “I Will Remember You”, and “World on Fire”. Her best-selling album to date is Surfacing, for which she won two Grammy Awards and four Juno Awards.

Her first album Touch was released in September 28, 1988, recorded in 1987-1988, Vancouver, Canada. The album received both critical and commercial success and included the hit song Vox. During this period she also contributed to an album by Moev, and embarked on her first national concert tour as an opening act for The Grapes Of Wrath.

Song Information:

“Angel” (sometimes mis-titled as “In the Arms of the Angel” or simply “Arms of the Angel”) is a song by Sarah McLachlan that originally appeared on her 1997 album Surfacing. As McLachlan explained on VH1 Storytellers, the song is about the Smashing Pumpkins touring keyboard player Jonathan Melvoin, who overdosed on heroin and died in 1996.

After release, the song received unusual popularity because of the haunting lyrics and the overall sadness feeling the song created. The song is often used to highlight emotional scenes from TV series, and has been included in many soundtracks.

“Angel” was McLachlan’s second consecutive top 5 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Due to very strong sales, the song debuted at number twelve on the chart, then jumped to the top ten the following week, before peaking at number four. It then remained at the top ten for nineteen weeks, and twenty-nine weeks on the chart. “Angel” was the eighteenth most successful song of 1999.
