Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Deitrick Haddon
Song:God Didn't Give Up
Deitrick Haddon is one of today's top contemporary gospel artists. He was born in 1973 in Detroit and is the son of preacher Clarence Haddon. He started out with his group Voices Of Unity in 1998 on Tyscot Records. The group also features his wife Damita Haddon, a tremendous singer in her own right. They had success to a point but it became obvious that Haddon would have to sign with a larger label to get better distribution. So he moved to Verity/Zomba in 2002. The Voices Of Unity continue to record on Tyscot and Haddon continues to produce their CDs. With the 2004 CD Crossroads, Zomba made a determined effort to cros Haddon over to mainstream R & B and he even performed on Soul Train. Haddon writes and produces a lot of his own material with his brother Gerald Haddon. God Didn't Give Up is a fabulous song and if one didn't already know Haddon is a gospel artists, his sound is very marketable to a mainstream audience. On his most recent CD 7 Days, Haddon works with veteran R & B producers Tim & Bob. Deitrick Haddon is a very talented guy and we will hear plenty from him in the future. Here's the video for God Didn't Give Up by Dietrick Haddon.
