CCM Spotlight–Jamie Owens Collins


“The Battle Belongs to the Lord” by Jamie Owens Collins

Jamie Owens Collins carried a neat anointing whenever she sang.  Furthermore she had a strong influence on later generation female vocalists, like Amy Grant and Twila Paris.

Unfortunately, few if any any videos of her ministering can be found.  I chose this song as its her voice (which was stellar) and the lyrics can be read while you listen in.

“No one will be able to oppose you successfully as long as you live. I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will never neglect you or abandon you.”

Joshua 1:5

Don’t believe the liar nor his lies! =)~

“Hard Times” by Jamie Owens Collins

Another classic, around 1975 I think.

  1. Actually, Jamie wrote “The Victor”. I’ve got the cassette of the two album release “Laughter in You Soul”/”Growing Pains”, and she is shown as the author on the lyrics sheet.


      1. I got saved in the early ’70s, and pretty much grew up with what’s now called CCM (then it was ‘Jesus Music’), so I’ve been listening for quite a while. I’m looking forward to when you spotlight 2nd Chapter of Acts, pretty much my favorite from back then (though I’m even more impressed with what Annie Herring and Matthew Ward have been doing as solo artists since then).
