Scotty McCreery, Carly Pearce and More Cover ‘Angels Among Us’ for a Good Cause

 

Scotty McCreery, Carly Pearce, Hunter Hayes and more come together in a new cover of the Alabama classic “Angels Among Us,” and the video is sure to bring tears to your eyes.

Radio Disney Country and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital teamed up to create this heart-wrenching music video featuring several country stars along with St. Jude patients.

The video also features Brennley Brown, CB30, Jillian Jacqueline, actress Lucy Hale, RaeLynn, Sara Evans, Tegan Marie, and California trio Temecula Road.

Radio Disney Country produced the song to announce their donation of $25,000 to St. Jude. The research hospital cares for juvenile cancer patients irrespective of their ability to pay for treatment.

The song was originally written by Alabama for their 1993 album Cheap Seats. This is the second time the song has been covered for a good cause. In 2012, pop star Demi Lovato recorded it to benefit victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting.

“Angels Among Us” Lyrics:

I was walkin’home from school
On a cold winter day,
Took a short cut through the woods
And I lost my way.
It was gettin’ late, and I was scared and alone.
Then a kind old man took my hand, and led me home.
Mama couldn’t see him,
But he was standing there,
And I knew in my heart
He was the answer to my prayer.

Oh, I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love.

When life held troubled times
And had me down on my knees
There’s always been someone
To come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger
To lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend
Just to say I understand
Now ain’t it kind of funny
At the dark end of the road
Someone light the way with just a single ray of hope.

Oh, I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love.

They wear so many faces,
Show up in the strangest places
And grace us with their mercies in our time of need.

Oh, I believe there are Angels Among Us,
Sent down to us from somewhere up above.
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love.
To guide us with a light of love
