Following the success of his debut film, Blessed & Cursed, Deitrick Haddon is back with a new CD, “Church on the
Moon.” On his latest offering, complete with 19 tracks, Deitrick has provided something surely to please the ears his listeners and the heart of God.
HWIH: Where did the concept “Church on the Moon” come from?
DH: While we were filming, I started thinking about what the music of the future would sound like and the Lord dropped the idea into my spirit for this album. The idea challenged my creativity, as I searched for ways to explain where I am with my relationship with Christ. My relationship with Him is out of this world and these songs represent the next level of worship and my expression of love for God.
HWIH: What are you hoping to accomplish with this project?
DH: I hope this CD will liberate young people, as they mobilize to further the agenda of Christ. I hope it frees them to stand-up in the midst of chaos and express their unwavering faith. This project represents something fresh…something new. It serves as a reminder to us all that we, as believers, are supposed to shine as bright as the moon shines in the dark. It shows us that, like the moon, we are to reflect the light of the sun (Son).
HWIH: Your wife, Damita Haddon, co-wrote some of the material on this project. What was that experience like?
DH: It’s a blessing to have a wife and a helpmate that’s connected to your ministry. It’s a powerful thing. I remember sharing with her the first verse of the title track and immediately she caught the vision and wrote the second verse. I truly believe marrying Damita was the best decision that I ever made.
HWIH: Is there any advice you can share to help empower our young people?
DH: I often tell our youth that they can be who they are in Christ and God will accept it. They can just “do them” and not worry about trying to be someone else. God placed a treasure inside all of us and He wants us to use those gifts for what He has called us to do.
