Detroit native Deitrick Haddon launched his solo gospel career in 2002 with the album Lost and Found, which peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Charts and received a GRAMMY nomination. Since then he has released a string of critically acclaimed albums as well as singles that have been played extensively on both gospel and mainstream R&B radio stations. Known for his progressive, urban style of gospel music, Haddon is also the founding pastor of Hill City Church in Los Angeles and a former cast member on Oxygen’s reality television show Preachers of L.A. Haddon’s new album, TIME (Truth Is My Energy), has been hailed as his “best work yet.”
One of the highlights of the album is the gospel radio smash single, “Open Door Season,” an uplifting and upbeat song about living a prosperous life with “power love and a sound mind.” Haddon says, “The song builds bridges to share the universal love of Christ, giving strength and comfort that God’s love is always present in our lives, carrying us through our journeys and struggles, from day into night.” Additionally, on his popular worship song “He’s Able,” first released in 2008, Haddon adds a new verse as well as modern production and flavor by changing the arrangement and bringing back to life what some consider their life anthem.
“Come Through,” another popular song on the album, was featured in TV One’s original film, Sins of the Father, where Haddon stars as the main character along with actors A.J. Johnson, Clifton Powell, Terayle Hill and Angela Davis. The film is about a pastor in Atlanta whose wife is brutally murdered outside their Atlanta home. The plot thickens as the police discover the secret lives they lived filled with lust and cruelty, unearthing a sinful conspiracy of biblical proportions.
Deitrick Haddon clearly has continued to produce amazing and uplifting albums and TIME (Truth Is My Energy) is no different. This album is sure to turn your sad day into a bright one filled with happiness and inspiration.
