The Grammy-nominated gospel singer Deitrick Haddon is releasing his upcoming movie Blessed & Cursed next week. Deitrick plays lead character Dwight Hawins, a young man who becomes the minister of music at one of the nation’s most prestigious churches. Soon he becomes the target of the bishop’s jealousy as the older church official begins an underhanded campaign against him. Deitrick, who also wrote the movie said he wanted to stay true to the problems that happen in churches across the country.
“I think that’s what people will really appreciate about this film, that it’s really transparent, “ Deitrick said. “It’s real to what happens in church. It shows church politics and the way people really are.”
Sheryl Lee Ralph and Drew Sidora also play big roles in the film which is set to hit stores July 27th.
