Deitrick Haddon has been making music history for a while. Haddon launched his solo career as a Christian R&B vocalist with the Lost & Found on Tyscot/Verity in 2002.

(Restoring Everything Damaged), Church on the Moon, and others, since his first release with Voices of Unity almost 20 years ago the Detroit native has earned countless accolades as a gospel leader, pioneering a distinctive progressive, urban contemporary style whose vision for the future of gospel defies expectation on each project.
I beleive he took gospel to new heights of new transparency and creativity with what I consider to be one of the best gospel albums ever with R.E.D. His adventure into television has broken records, but he has also has a few great movies with Blessed And Cursed and the emotional Beautiful Soul.
