When Sarah McLachlan and Pink paired up for a duet of "Angel" at the 2008 American Music Awards, the performance was hailed as one of the highlights of the show. The two met at Ellen DeGeneres' 50th birthday party, and Pink confessed to McLachlan her affinity for the song after having seen it covered by Prince. "I love her voice," McLachlan said. "She's got a great rock 'n' roll grit that's soulful as well."
The song, "Angel" is from the 1997 album, Surfacing. "Angel" was written by Jonathan Melvoin, the touring keyboard player for the Smashing Pumpkins, who died of an overdose in 1996. Over the years, the song has become one of the most celebrated pieces in McLachlan's catalog. Enjoy.
