"Angel" is the first single from Angela Winbush's solo debut, Sharp.

As half of the duo of René & Angela, Winbush had two number-one R&B hits with "Save Your Love (For #1)" and "Your Smile." After a decade, René Moore and Winbush went their separate ways. "Angel", her solo-debut, spent two weeks at the top of the US Billboard R&B chart. It was also named by Billboard the number nine most successful R&B single of 1987. [1]. Despite the success, "Angel" did not make the Hot 100.[1]

The single was nominated for a 1988 Soul Train Music Award for Best R&B/Soul Single, Female. The song also helped Winbush get nominated for Female Album of the Year.

A video for "Angel" was released as a download on iTunes in May 2007.
