The song 'Angel' is one of sing-songwriter Sarah McLachlan's most well-known hits. The ballad remained in the Billboard Top 100 for 29 weeks in 1999, and to this day is a timeless classic.
During a battle round on 'The Voice Kids', these three talented kids, Ayoub, Ieke and Merel were asked to perform this very difficult and emotional ballad. What's incredible is that they not only pull the song off effortlessly, but it's packed with so much raw emotion at the same time.
Not only was the audience floored, but the judges and families backstage were all moved to tears.
It's shocking to think that these are just children under the age 12 performing such an intense song. You won't believe it, this is absolutely breathtaking-- watch their beautiful performance below!
Sarah McLachlan Lyrics
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance for a break that would make it okay there's always some reason to feel not good enough and it's hard at the end of the day I need some distraction oh beautiful release memories seep from my veins let me be empty and weightless and maybe I'll find some peace tonight
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
so tired of the straight line and everywhere you turn there's vultures and thieves at your back and the storm keeps on twisting you keep on building the lies that you make up for all that you lack it don't make no difference escaping one last time it's easier to believe in this sweet madness oh this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees
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 you're in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here
