Almighty Fire is the twenty-fourth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, released on April 13, 1978 by Atlantic Records. By the time of this album's release, Aretha Franklin was going through a commercial slump, due in part to the widespread popularity of disco.

Aretha was reunited with Curtis Mayfield after their earlier success together with the Sparkle soundtrack. However, the album failed to turn around the singer's fortunes on the charts, selling only about 100,000 copies[citation needed] and peaking at a dismal #83 on the Billboard album chart.

The title single reached at #12 on the Billboard R&B Singles Chart and the follow-up single, "More Than Just a Joy", peaked at #51. The album was belatedly released on compact disc in Europe in 2008.
