"Turning Point" is a 1976 song by R&B singer Tyrone Davis, written and produced by Leo Graham. It was released on Davis' 1976 album Turning Point!.

"Turning Point" spent a week at number one on the R&B singles chart in February of that year, but did not chart at all on the Hot 100; it holds the distinction of being the first number one soul single to fail to make the Hot 100 since 1955.[1] The single was Davis' last number one single on the R&B chart.[2]

A cover of the song by Mighty Joe Young is featured in the movie Thief.
