Award-winning, Verity recording artist, producer, songwriter and actor Deitrick Haddon plans on taking his fans on a trip to outer space as he announces his “CHURCH ON THE MOON Tour”, which will hit 31 cities across North America. Kicking off July 13 in Indianapolis, Deitrick will be joined by Canton Jones and will be making stops at concert halls and churches concluding on September 17 in Atlanta. Tickets for the tour will go on sale June 8th and be available via ticketmaster.com.
A soul-stirring, energetic performer, and one of the most fashionable, eclectic, artists to ever hit the gospel scene, Deitrick Haddon promises fans an amazing time as he will perform his hits new and old. In addition to past favorites including “Love Him Like I Do,” “He’s Able,” and “Sinner’s Prayer”, fans can also expect to hear songs off the newly released album, CHURCH ON THE MOON, including “Well Done”, the hit single that has spent the last 33 weeks in the top 5 on the Billboard Gospel Singles chart. “There’s so much sadness and craziness going on… I want to take you somewhere else for a while,” says Haddon.
Since debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Albums Chart in January 2011, CHURCH ON THE MOON has remained in the top 10 and praise for the modern gospel effort continues to pour in:
“Some people say that gospel music has gone too far. “Too far” implies there are boundaries to what gospel music is or should be. If that is the case, then Deitrick Haddon, has long bypassed them.” -Rollingout.com.
“Though he is unconventional in method…Deitrick Haddon is revamping the world of gospel and inspirational music.”- Crème-magazine.com
“Deitrick Haddon has emerged as one of the most talented artists of any genre in modern music. He’s dedicated himself to Modern Gospel and has become possibly the most creative, consistently enjoyable artist in that genre.” -SoulTracks
“There aren’t too many songs that qualify to be on my IPOD. However, “Well Done” made it and I found myself playing more than once.” – Elroy Smith, Inspiration Format Director, Radio One
“If you take a listen to Haddon’s new project, you will realize that the title does fit the music, as it is not business as usual. But it never is with Haddon, as he has always been ahead of his time with everything from his music to his swag.” – Sheilah Belle, TheBelleReport.com
CHURCH ON THE MOON, Deitrick’s fifth album on Verity Records, has spawned praise and support from gospel and mainstream audiences as he became the first Gospel artist to get a BET “106& Park” “World Premiere” for his video, “Well Done.” Staying with his passion for innovation, Deitrick also became the first gospel artist to release a music video trilogy, “CHURCH ON THE MOON, Part 1”. The trilogy premiered on GMC in the United States on Easter Sunday 2011. BET International premier aired in the UK, Ireland, Africa, and the Middle East.
