An Adoption Story

January 28, 2011

I came across an interesting story today about Darryl McDaniels. McDaniels was part of the hip-hop/rap group Run-DMC. Some years ago, amidst troubles in his life he was ready to commit suicide. Then in 1997 in a taxi cab, he heard Sarah McLachlan’s song “Angel” and he credited this song with saving his life. He finally met her in person and he told her the story. 3 years later he found out he was adopted, and decided to write a song about the things he went through learning about his adoption. He asked McLachlan to sing BGV’s on the song (she is adopted as well) and this is the end result. Enjoy.

Adoption is a wonderful thing!

To listen to McDaniels talk about this part of his life, follow the link:
