Christopher Ruben Studdard (born September 12, 1978), best known as Ruben Studdard, is an American R&B, pop, and gospel singer. He rose to fame as winner of the second season of American Idol. He received a Grammy Award nomination in December 2003 for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for "Superstar."
In the years following Idol, Studdard has released four studio albums, including his most recent disc, 2009's Love Is.
"I Need An Angel" is the title of a song by singer Daniel DeBourg released on his Tell the World album in 2002, that made #30 on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. The song was produced by Derek S. Clark of Tacoma, Washington and written by R. Kelly.
A version performed by R. Kelly himself was included on advance copies of his 2004 double album, Happy People/U Saved Me, but was replaced with the song "I Surrender" on the final release.
The song was remade by second-season American Idol winner Ruben Studdard in 2004, as the title track of his album I Need an Angel. It peaked at #32 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
