The song became a crossover hit in 1957 for Bobby Helms. “My Special Angel,” which Bobby Helms recorded in July 1957, peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart[1] and spent four weeks at number one on the US Country music chart.[2] The single made the R&B chart as well peaking at number eight.[3] It became a gold record. Backing vocals were sung by the Anita Kerr Singers.

Bill Haley and His Comets covered it on their 1960 covers album Bill Haley and His Comets.

Bobby Vinton and Frankie Avalon both released covers of this song in 1963. The Crests recorded a cover version for their 1960 album: The Crests Sing All Biggies.

It was revived in 1968 by The Vogues, a vocal group founded in Pennsylvaniawho had already scored top ten hits in the US with the songs “You’re The One“, “Five O’Clock World“, and “Turn Around, Look at Me“. The group’s cover of “My Special Angel” reached number seven on the Hot 100 chart[4] and fared even better on the Easy Listening chart, where it spent two weeks at number one in October 1968.
