“Angels Among Us” is a song written by Don Goodman and Becky Hobbs and recorded by the American country music band Alabama. The song was released in December 1993 as a Christmas single from the band’s 1993 album Cheap Seats. It charted twice on the Hot Country Songs charts. The song features backing vocals from the Sanctuary Choir and Young Musicians Choir of the First Baptist Church of Fort Payne, Alabama. Hobbs also recorded the song on her album The Boots I Came to Town In.
Alabama lead singer Randy Owen has said that the band received “hundreds of letters from all over the world saying that the song was a blessing.” Owen performed the song at the funeral of Dale Earnhardt, Sr. in 2001, with whom he shared a personal friendship. A live recording of the song is included on Angels Among Us: Hymns and Gospel Favorites, released in 2014.What did you think?
