AllMusic Review by

Though rooted in traditional gospel, Mighty Fortress expands its horizons with touches of pop, jazz, and even hip-hop, grafting a distinctively modernized urban feel on to familiar material like "Onward Christian Soldiers." Not all of the album's experiments work, but more often than not the pieces fit together, buoyed by the powerful harmonies of Hawkins and his six-voice ensemble.
