"Higher Ground" is a song recorded by Jennifer Rush for her 1989 album, Wings of Desire. It was written by Ken Cummings and Mark Blatt, and produced by Phil Ramone. "Higher Ground" was released as the first single from Wings of Desire in December 1989. Later, the song was recorded in French by Mario Pelchat and Celine Dion for Pelchat's 1993 album. This version was released as a promotional single in Canada and France.

Jennifer Rush version

The song is a panegyric in which Rush praises her partner for loving her and explains that should (s)he ever need assistance, she will be "standing on higher ground" and will look after him.[4]

Released as the first single from Wings of Desire, "Higher Ground" peaked at number 30 in Austria, number 54 in Germany and number 98 in the United Kingdom. To promote the single, a music video was released which features Rush singing and dancing.[5]

Rush performed the song on Peter's Popshow.[6] According to the liner notes of her next album, The Power of Jennifer Rush, she explained that after that performance she slipped off the stage and broke her leg; despite honoring most of her tour dates, this caused a considerable delay in recording The Power of Jennifer Rush, and was the reason that album was issued as a compilation album rather than a studio album.[4] The song also appears on Jennifer Rush: The Hit Box (2002), The Power of Love: The Complete Video Collection (2004), Hit Collection and Stronghold – The Collector's Hit Box.[7]
