Deitrick has been causing quite a stir on the US scene with his urban gospel releases. On 'Together In Worship' Haddon, with the small choir Voices Of Unity, takes on worship ministry with an evening of gospel praise. Recorded live at Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Haddon also brings in special guest gospel big-hitters Darwin Hobbs, Shirley Murdock and Javen. The album opens with a passionate call to praise before launching into the upbeat "I Gotta Praise" with its funky bass and percussion. The track really sets the tone for much of the album with feet-tapping rhythms infused with a big horn section and even bigger gospel harmonies. The lively opening continues with "Watch Me Praise Him" which has a jive feel to it. As the album progresses it does at times descend into standard mid-tempo gospel but standout track "You Are God", sung by Javen with its stripped back acoustic guitar-driven R&B sounding akin to Craig David, provides something above the ordinary. You can find worship albums in all genres these days and this won't add anything particularly original in the gospel worship field. But it is a solid, well produced and carefully crafted offering.

i love you voice bro, plus your music,but im sure with alot of inexperiences with God dont become like Solomon who ended up writing "ecces"meaning the standards are compromised like making allies with nonbelievers,in production..covering the center the Your life Jesus don't pervert the anointing bse it will affect your ministry in that you will deliver only 60% apart from 95%-100% of what God has given you
