"Non possiamo mai immaginare quello che le famiglie, a Newtown, stanno provando in questi momenti. E dal momento che non possiamo fare nulla per togliere il loro dolore, possiamo stare uniti e supportarli in questo momento difficile"

Demi Lovato ha deciso di dedicare il suo nuovo pezzo, Angeles Among Us, alle vittime della strage di Newtown che ha visto cadere sotto i colpi di Adam Lanza ventisei persone, delle quali ben venti bambini della scuola elementare. Una tragedia che ha colpito e sconvolto il mondo intero nelle ultime settimane. Già poco tempo fa vi abbiamo fatto ascoltare l'omaggio alle vittime da parte di Mike Posner con "Heaven" e vi abbiamo raccontato del boicottaggio di "Die Young" di Ke$ha dalle radio americane a causa proprio del testo.

Il giudice dell'ultima edizione di X Factor Usa 2012 ha rilasciato il video, realizzato proprio durante la sera della Vigilia di Natale. Potete ascoltare la canzone, emozionante e particolarmente sentita, dopo il salto e leggere il testo

    I was walking home from school on a cold winter day.
    Took a shortcut through the woods, and I lost my way.
    It was getting late, and I was scared and alone.
    But 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 prayers.

    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 the light of love.

    When life held troubled times, and had me down on my knees.
    There's always been someone there 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.

    And ain't it kind of funny that at the dark end of the road.
    Someone lights 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 the light of love.

    They wear so many faces; show up in the strangest places.
    To grace us with their mercy, 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 the light of love.

    To guide us with the light of love
