Amazing Cover: "Angel" (Ruben Studdard)

Why Ruben hasn't recorded a cover version of this yet is unbeknownst to me, but in my book he definitely should. With that said, Ruben's heartfelt and emotional cover of Aretha's "Angel"is in my opinion one of, if not his best live vocal performance to date.

Written by Franklin's sister Carolyn, this tender ballad has a soft spot in the Queen's heart and the way Ruben sang it really touched her that night as you can tell from the clip.

Even though he was sick, Ruben brought the soulful depths that few can these days and you can watch it all go down below as we continue to give thanks on this day.
