I was listening to Sarah McLachlan's Angel today, and I was reminded of what in incredible, emotional song it is. What is your most beautiful song?

Demi Lovato - Skyscraper
Coldplay - Fix You
Mariah Carey - Bye Bye
Beyonce - Halo
Mariah Carey - Hero


Also from 2013 so far I'd say this is one of the most beautiful songs for me personally:
Fifth Harmony - Who Are You http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv8Xi0IlvmM

Because of what the song is about, "I Got Your Back" from my most favorite singer James Otto will always be at the top of my list.

God bless you and him always!!!

Holly

P.S. My most favorite part is when James sings, "I'll rock you safe all through the night..."

Just wait for it...




But on a serious note, I would throw Eric Claptons Tears In Heaven into it. Nothing comes close to it.

This version of Schubert's Ave Maria. I'm not even sure who is singing it.

I agree about This Woman's Work by Kate Bush. I'd also suggest A Coral Room, also by Kate, as being one of the most beautiful songs ever created.
