American gospel singer, Deitrick Vaughn Haddon, stopped by Nick Cannon Mornings to drop some heavenly knowledge and have a close conversation with Nick Cannon. He started his career as a Christian R&B vocalist who wrote and produced music, and is now even branching out to different outlets in the entertainment industry. While a man of many talents, the pastor is not only working on new vocal projects but is also even on Oxygen’s show, “Preachers of L.A.”
During the interview, the topic of hip-hop artists now mixing gospel music with rap, of course had to come up. Hip-hop legend, Kanye West is one of the main artists mixing genres, so when Nick asked Haddon what he felt about hip-hop becoming a melting pot, Haddon shared that he too has mixed genres and has even been kicked out of church for supporting this new wave.
Last but not least, Nick of course had to hit the gospel singer with “Firing Squad” questions and asked Deitrick what his favorite bible verse was. Deitrick said Psalms 1, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season.” This “powerful” verse in not only meaningful to him, but is the foundation of his life that helps keep him going in the right direction.
