Alabama‘s heartwarming song “Angels Among Us” has been touching the hearts and souls of millions since its release in December 1993. The song’s music video, which radiates purity and spirituality, perfectly embodies the powerful message conveyed through the song’s lyrics.
The video features Alabama’s lead vocalist, Randy Owen, singing the moving lyrics while photos pass across the screen of ordinary people demonstrating extraordinary acts of selflessness pass.
These everyday heroes include John Winstead, who saved a woman from a parking lot attacker despite enduring multiple stab wounds, and Mattie Dotson, who has opened her home and heart to over 50 foster children with nowhere else to go.
These unsung heroes are the true “angels among us.”
Originally released as a Christmas single off their fifteenth studio album, “Cheap Seats,” “Angels Among Us” charted twice on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart between 1993 and 1995, peaking at No. 22. After the song’s release, Owen received hundreds of letters from fans describing the song as a “blessing.”
The song’s music video is a beautiful and chilling reminder that there are angels among us, people who selflessly give of themselves to make the world a better place.
It’s a testament to the power of kindness and the human spirit to rise above adversity and make a difference in the lives of others.
In a world where negativity and cynicism can often overshadow the good in humanity, “Angels Among Us” serves as a beacon of hope and a reminder that there are still everyday heroes walking among us. So take a moment to watch the video and let the song’s message inspire you to be an angel among us too.
