It was written by Irish songwriter Ray Heffernan and Guy Chambers for Robbie Williams, and appeared in his album Life Thru a Lens as a fourth track, in September 1997. Some people think that this song was a career saver for Robbie Williams. In any case he is singing it in almost all of his concerts 🙂
Song made a great success and was covered by many. The most famous are Jessica Simpson, British soul singer Beverley Knight, British classical crossover group All Angels as well as David Archuleta who performed it for American Idol. In 2005. Mexican singer Yuridia made a Spanish and in 2006. Italian baritone Patrizio Franco Buanne released Italian version of the song. You have links of every version of the same song.
According to a poll conducted by the Performing Right Society, Angels was voted to be the most popular karaoke song.
But on my opinion the best version is on the top of this post 😀 Enjoy!
