I read an article recently that described Deitrick Haddon as the best new kid on the block. Having listened to 'Lost And Found', I would be inclined to agree. This youth pastor and music director at Detroit's Unity Cathedral Of Faith has produced a musical cocktail of urban rhythms and uplifting praise music. A particular favourite from the album is "Grandma Laster Intro" which uses the verbal exchange format popularised by Kirk Franklin on the 'Rebirth' album. This particular conversation takes place between Deitrick and his grandma and focuses on his difficulties in grappling with issues concerning death and bereavement. Snippets of personal testimony are integral to the album. In my opinion this is an excellent addition to the gospel contemporary world.

'The title is the theme for the whole album and it lets people know that no matter what, God can always reach them - both the lost and the found.' Deitrick Haddon aims his music at Christians and non-Christians alike and this is evident through such songs as Sinner’s Prayer and Changed Man.
