Gospel star Deitrick Haddon and several of the youth at the High Praise Church he pastors in Detroit, MI are meeting on two Monday nights for an online chat session about Haddon’s new movie, “Blessed & Cursed.” The purpose of the chats is to give Haddon fans and movie buffs a chance to ask questions about the movie and the topics that are discussed in the movie such as integrity, betrayal, and fornication. Fans and movie lovers can join the discussion for the next two Monday evenings (September 6, 2010 @ 7:00-9:00 p.m. EST and September 13, 2010 @ 7:00-9:00 p.m. EST) at .  

A modern twist on the biblical tale of David and Saul, “Blessed & Cursed” (the DVD is in stores now) is a story of pain, deceit and triumph that depicts Dwight Hawkins’ (Deitrick Haddon) struggle to realize his God-given purpose. Dwight must choose between a family obligation and pursuing his own dreams of gospel music superstardom.  

Given an incredible opportunity to become a psalmist at the city’s largest church, Dwight soon realizes that this new position is too good to be true as he gets caught up in a diabolical scheme of jealousy and betrayal orchestrated by the church’s deacon and fueled by the pastor himself. The screenplay is based on a story written by Haddon.

The film cast features Sheryl Lee Ralph, Drew Sidora, Damita Haddon, Mali Music, IROCC Williams, Rance Allen, Karen Clark Sheard, J Moss, Kierra Sheard, Loren Dean Harper, and gospel vocal trio 21:03‘s Jo’Rel Quinn.  The lead single, “Judah (Let Me Hear You Praise),” has already broken through the Billboard Top 40 Hot Gospel Songs chart, paving the way for the twelve song CD, Blessed & Cursed (Tyscot Records).
