Angel was [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Sarah McLachlan[/lastfm]’s first single to reach number one on the US Adult Contemporary chart, showing that she was capable of succeeding in the United States as well as her home country of Canada.

McLachlan says she was inspired to write the song after reading about rock stars who use drugs to cope with the atmosphere of the music industry. Though she has never turned to drugs herself, she says she understands the feelings that would drive someone to do so, and that prompted her to write this song.
