“Halo” is a song recorded by American singer Beyoncé for her third studio album, I Am… Sasha Fierce (2008).

Inspired by Ray LaMontagne‘s 2004 song “Shelter”, “Halo” was written and composed by Ryan Tedder and Evan Bogart, with additional minor songwriting by Beyoncé.

“Halo” is a pop and R&B power ballad, the lyrics of which describe a sublime love. It features drum, piano, keyboard, string, synthesizer, and percussion instrumentation. The song faced a controversy when Kelly Clarkson claimed that Tedder had reused the musical arrangement in her own 2009 song “Already Gone“. “Halo” received positive reviews from music critics, who made comparisons with Lewis’s 2007 song “Bleeding Love“. Its production and Beyoncé’s vocals also received critical praise. “Halo” was nominated for Record of the Year and won Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards. It won Best Song at the 2009 MTV Europe Music Awards.

“Halo” topped the singles charts of Brazil, Norway, and Slovakia, and reached the top five on the singles chart of Australia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The song has received numerous certifications, including a twelvefold-platinum certification from Australia, making it one of the highest-certified songs in the country, ninefold-platinum certifications from Canada and the US, triple-platinum certifications from Italy and the United Kingdom, and a double-platinum from Spain.

Philip Andelman directed “Halo”‘s accompanying music video, which features American actor Michael Ealy. It portrays a romantic relationship between Beyoncé’s and Ealy’s characters. Critics complimented Beyoncé’s looks in the clip. An alternative music video, which shows Ealy’s character being chased by police officers through a forest at night, was posted on the Internet in May 2010. The lyrics to “Halo” were changed for three of Beyoncé’s special live performances: a tribute to Michael Jackson following his death, a tribute to the victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and for Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s memorial in 2020. The song has been covered by many artists, including Florence and the MachineHarper Blynn, and Westlife. It was performed on the television show Glee, and was added to the international soundtrack of the Brazilian soap opera Caminho das Índias.
