Awards :  "Philharmonic Fool" album was nominated for a 1996 Juno Award (Canada) and was the winner of a special judge's award in the 1999 Children's Music Web Awards.

Song Info :  When my grandchild was born with Down Syndrome, I was overwhelmed with my own ignorance. In those first moments of denial I had thoughts that are shameful to me even to this day. But very soon I realized that our family had been given a chance to live with a real live angel.

This is not the Hallmark card kind of angel. In fact, when you go out into public with this angel, people may shun you or not want to look your way. But such an angel can open your heart in ways unimagined, show you a world you never before dreamed of and teach you what compassion really means.

I wrote this song for my granddaughter and first performed it for 200 kids at a down syndrome conference. They loved it and eventually it became an anthem for special needs kids everywhere. We made a video starring my granddaughter that has become the most requested song on Treehouse TV and is used as a learning tool for new parents and caregivers. This one little song has taken on a life of its own. Now I am Goodwill Ambassador for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation in Vancouver, Canada and I sing "Angels Do" around the globe.

This wonderful recording contains inspired performances from celebrated Canadian musicians Rene Worst on bass, Shari Ulrich on violin, Peggy Lee on cello, Adrian Duncan on dulcigurdy and Jasbir Bhogal on tablas. - Rick

MP3 Genre :Children
I always thought they had a big old set of wings
With flowing robes that would never never cling
And played on harps that had at least a dozen strings
And gathered up in groups to sing and sing and sing
But you look like these angels do
You look like these angels do
And angels look just like you

I always thought that they could fly without a care
And stand around on clouds that floated in the air
And if they lost a thing they always had a spare
For which you must admit is really rather rare
But you look like these angels do
You look like these angels do
And angels look just like you

I always thought they had a halo on their head
Which is so right at night for reading in your bed
I don't believe it but you know I've heard it said
To be an angel that first you must be dead
No, you look like these angels do
You look like these angels do
And angels look just like you

Well they can join a choir or they can join a band
And they originate in many different lands
And do not worry cause they always understand
That when the music's hot they always clap their hands
And you look like the angels do
You look like these angels do
And angels look just like you
