"I Got a Woman" was a career-defining song for American R&B musician Ray Charles when released as a single in December of 1954. Atlantic 45-1050 b/w Come Back.

Built on a gospel hymn, "Jesus Is All the World to Me", Ray was listening to on the radio while on the road with his band, he and his band member, trumpeter Renald Richard penned a song which was built among a gospel frenetic pace with secular lyrics. The mixture of gospel and rhythm and blues in "I Got a Woman" eventually led to what would become known as soul music making Charles its heralded creator.The song was recorded late 1954 in an Atlanta studio and was Charles' first #1 R&B hit in January 1955. The song would lead to more hits for Charles during this period when he was on Atlantic. (from Wikipedia)
