John Daniel «J. D.» Sumner (19. november 192416. november 1998) var ein amerikansk gospelsongar, låtskrivar og musikkorganisator kjend for bassrøysta si. Han var kjend for gruppa si J.D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet og for sambandet til The Blackwood Brothers og Elvis Presley.

Sumner song den siste tonen på Elvis Presley-songen «Way Down», ein C1. Vokalrekkjevidda hans strekte seg under den lågaste spelbare tonen på eit piano, og nådde tonen G0 i eit 26 sekundar lang sekvens der han syng ein fallande, glidande tone på ein konsert for Presley. Det er blitt hevda at han nådde Ess0 i eit konsertopptak for The Blackwood Brothers, men dette er ikkje verifisert.
