Sean Forrest - Haiti (I Want to Know What You Know) - Catholic CD Review

0

Sean Forrest really rocks the house with his new release Haiti (I Want to Know What You Know). However, beneath the surface of the music lies a heart that is truly open to serving the Lord. Sean’s project was conceived as a fund raiser for his ministry Movin’ With The Spirit Mission Haiti (www.mwts.org) to benefit the villages of Duverger and Dandann. MWTS is planning a four phase building project that will include a school, orphanage and clinic.

Nevertheless, the good work being done by MWTS is not the only reason you should want this CD. Sean’s songwriting and production skills are superior. His acoustic driven folk-rock style will have you singing along with nearly every track. I was particularly impressed with track #6 “Only So Many Days.” I think Sean’s version of the “Hail Mary” (track #3) comes in a close second in my book.

Sandwiched between the opening and closing songs recorded live in Haiti with local villagers, I found a humble soul who has the heart of Mother Teresa and the musical chops of John Cougar Mellencamp. For more information you can visit the MWTS website: www.mwts.org.
