The Mighty Hannibal (born James Timothy Shaw, August 9, 1939, Atlanta, Georgia, United States) is an American R&B, soul and funk singer, songwriter and record producer. Known for his showmanship, and outlandish costumes often incorporating a pink turban, several of his songs carried social or political themes. His biggest hit was "Hymn No.5", a banned from radio comment on the effects on servicemen participating in the Vietnam War.

Dead in January 30, 2014, at the age of 74
