Songfacts®:

  • Bedingfield from her website: "My mum, Molly Bedingfield is the main reason I have just released a single called Angel. The song is a love song, but the theme of wanting to protect someone is directly inspired by the way my mum has always cared for us four Bedingfield kids and also thousands of others all over the world through her charity Global Angels."
  • This was produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, which explains the "Darkchild forever" line at the beginning of the song.
  • Phil Griffin directed the song's music video. Griffin also directed the promo for Amy Winehouse's "Rehab."

  • Edward Pearce from Ashford, Kent, EnglandI've met Natasha's mum, Molly (I used to do accounts work for a previous charity she worked for). She's a remarkable lady who has devoted her life to doing charitable work. Global Angels is a great cause and every penny donated goes directly to the projects it supports rather than getting swallowed up in admin costs.
