"I Am Blessed" is a song by Eternal written by pop hit songwriter Mark Mueller and Marsha Malamet. It was the second single from the 2 x platinum hit album Power of a Woman and peaked at #7 on the UK Singles Chart.

The inspirational pop ballad spent a total of 12 weeks on the UK singles chart in 1995-1996, with 3 weeks in the Top 10 and 7 weeks in the Top 20. [1] It was certified silver by the BPI for sales over 200,000 copies in the UK. It also reached #7 in Ireland, becoming the group's first Top 10 hit in that country.

Eternal performed "I Am Blessed" for Pope John Paul II at the Vatican in 1995. [2] The overall strength of the lead vocal is such that it is often compared to Whitney Houston's gospel performances. [3]
