Music is such a powerful thing. It is a universal language, and it transcends the barriers of race, culture and religion. Good music can be understood and loved by everyone no matter where they’re from. It’s a great outlet for your creativity, and can also be really healing as well. Listening to a good song can turn your day around. And sometimes, writing a song can really heal your soul.
That’s what Sarah McLachlan did. The wonderful singer is known for her moving ballads and her touching voice. Perhaps she is best known for her song “Angel”, which was included in her 1997 album “Surfacing”. It was written about Smashing Pumpkin’s keyboard player Jonathon Melvoin, who passed away due to an overdose of heroin.
