Gospel singer Deitrick Haddon put his spin on Usher's hit R&B track Climax.  His version of the song expresses a clear desire to glorify God. The intro starts with Deitrick narrating his interpretation at the beginning of the lyrics video. He says 'When I think of Climax I think about the highest place you can reach and that's God's presence.' Deitrick has had floods of requests to cover other tracks and been busy responding to his fans requests with other remixes including Jay Z and Kanye's Church in the Wild, and Mercy as well as Miguel's Adorn. The singer announced that these tracks are a part of his up and coming mix tape project called Reversed. Deitrick not only has a great singing  talent but his creative ability to transform each of these songs and make them his own is evident.
