Nashville, TN (June 10, 2020)
Entertainment One celebrates the second #1 single release from chart-topping, triple-threat Deitrick Haddon, “Open Door Season.” The up-tempo anthem tops the Billboard Gospel Music National Airplay Chart, the second on that chart for Haddon.
Haddon’s latest album, T.I.M.E (Truth Is My Energy), is hailed as his “best work yet,” and boasts a new verse on the worshippers’ favorite track “He’s Able,” the viral, Zaytoven produced “Gorilla Faith,” and “Come Through,” which was lifted from TV One’s original film, Sins of the Father – which Haddon starred in. T.I.M.E (Truth Is My Energy) is available now at all major digital retail outlets.
Deitrick Haddon, shares, “I am very excited about ‘Open Door Season’ being #1. People need to know that “doors are still open for them”, even though we have been sheltering inside. It’s not over and God is still working! It’s been 20 + years and this is my 2nd #1! If I never get another one, I’m just grateful that God is still using me. All over the world, people tell me how much my songs have helped them. That’s all that I can ask for. I thank all of them, everywhere for the support and love, as well as my label…for theirs too!”
Deitrick Haddon earned the name, “the new face of Gospel,” after his album Church on the Moon debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Gospel Chart. The Detroit native is known for his progressive, urban style of gospel music, but he is also the founding pastor of Hill City Church in California. Haddon is also a former cast member on Oxygen channel’s reality television show Preachers of L.A. During Christmas 2018, Haddon teamed up with super-producer Zaytoven to create what they consider to be their best body of work to date, on the holiday EP Greatest Gift. Additionally, Haddon penned three songs on Usher’s most recent album, A.
