Doc Powell's 1999 album I Claim the Victory takes gospel's spiritual influence in Powell's life and translates it into his music. The leading gospel group Higher Praise contributes guest vocals on most of the tracks, including standards like "Amazing Grace" and "Jesus Loves Me," and Ollie Woodson, former lead singer of the Temptations, delivers a compelling performance on "I Just Wanna Know You." Powell's seamless fusion of his jazz and gospel background makes I Claim the Victory a distinctive and personal collection.
