Gospel Singer Brings Down the House Praising Jesus on Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show

NBC

Earlier this month, the Grammy award winning gospel singer Yolanda Adams appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and sang her classic hit song “Victory.”

And what a performance she gave. When she finished, Jimmy Fallon couldn’t stop exclaiming “Oh my goodness!” and the audience gave her a standing ovation.

And the song she sang was all about praising Jesus!

How often does that happen on network television?

While she gave a great performance, those who are familiar with the song know that she avoided trying to hit some of the high notes.

If you’re interested in hearing a younger Adams sing the song with a wider vocal range, here you go:

“Victory” by Yolanda Adams

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus, yes I do
He is a mighty conqueror
In Him I will trust, all my battles He’ll fight

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus
For me He died but He rose on the third day
That’s why I have true victory everyday

Truly, I’ve been through the storm and rain
I know everything about heartache and pain
But God carried me through it all
Without His protection, I would surely fall

I’ve been broke without a dime to my name
But all my bills got paid ’cause I called on Jesus name
You can’t tell me that God isn’t real
‘Cause I’ve got the victory and that’s why I’m still here

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus, yes I do
He is a mighty conqueror
In Him I will trust, all my battles He’ll fight

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus
For me He died but He rose on the third day
That’s why I have true victory everyday

I’m not worried about material things I don’t have
[Incomprehensible] my Saviors care
‘Cause I know that my blessing is on the way
I can’t see it right now, but I stand by faith

I’ve fought many, many battles in His name
I’ve held up the blood-stained banner and proclaimed
That Jesus is the truth and the light
Believe me when I say He will make it right

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus, yes I do
He is a mighty conqueror
In Him I will trust, all my battles He’ll fight

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus
For me He died but He rose on the third day
That’s why I have true victory everyday

Yeah, I got the victory, yeah
I got the victory yeah, yeah, yeah
And if you have the victory sing along with me
Yeah, I got the victory, yeah
I got the victory yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing it with me, I’ve got the victory

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus, yes I do
He is a mighty conqueror
In Him I will trust, all my battles He’ll fight

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus
For me He died but He rose on the third day
That’s why I have true victory everyday

Oh yeah, I got the victory, yeah
I got the victory yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
I got the victory, yeah
I got the victory yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yes
Sing along with me

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus, yes I do
He is a mighty conqueror
In Him I will trust, all my battles He’ll fight

I’ve got, got the victory
I’ve got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus
For me He died but He rose on the third day
That’s why I have true victory everyday
