"It's a Miracle" is a 1975 single by Barry Manilow and was the second release from his album, Barry Manilow II. "It's a Miracle" went to number twelve on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and was Manilow's second number one on the U.S. Easy Listening chart, spending one week at number one in April 1975.[1] The single also peaked at number fifteen on the disco/dance chart, and was the first of four entries on the chart.[2] "It's a Miracle" was followed by "Could It Be Magic".

In Canada, "It's a Miracle" was a number one hit, spending two weeks at the top spot.[3] It was his second and final number one song in that nation, and is ranked as the 25th biggest Canadian hit of 1975. [4]

The song describes the rigors of a long concert tour across America. The "miracle" is coming home and rediscovering love and intimacy after having gone for a protracted time without it. Once the singer returns home, he is determined to never leave again.

"It's a Miracle" is traditionally the first song played at Barry Manilow concerts.
