Deitrick Haddons awesome singing ability, spunky dance
moves, charm and charisma excited gospel fans at Saturdays
production of Pilgrimage, Gathering of Families 8,
at Mo2bs in Chaguaramas.
A presentation of Citadel Ltd, (i95.5FM) the sixth edition
of Pilgrimage, with the theme Red Nation, featured
the acclaimed US gospel entertainer in an hour-long delivery
of music and ministry to the delight of the gathering.
Comfortably merging his well-tailored talents with song, the
young minister reminded the predominantly youthful audience
about Gods greatness, His mercifulness and faithfulness
Displaying an excellent command of the stage, Haddon delivered
ballads, reggae and hip-hop-inspired numbers in his seven-song
To the many dressed in red, he asked: Arent you
glad you have a God that would forgive you for everything?
The answer was a resounding yes.
Haddon continued: Hes not like mankind to give
up on you after one mistake.
After this comment, Haddon offered a selection titled Sinners
Prayer, in which he sought to explain why mankind would never
give up faith, and called for an unswerving belief in the
kingdom of heaven.
He resumed dialogue with his congregation. This time he asked:
Want some more?
responded the crowd.
He continued: Are you tired?
said his new-found fans.
He then called for believers to lift their hands in praise
to God Almighty, to which the audience complied.
Traditionally, Pilgrimage is designed as an all-day event
starting as early as 9 am, and this year was no different.
The showcase of music and ministry, hosted by Jamie Thomas
and Junior Lett of the gospel show Perfect Ten on the radio
station, brought Gods messengers from across T&T.
Enticing performances on the days playbill were also
delivered by JD and Alter Call, Isaac Blackman and the Love
Circle and Sherwin Gardner with Reflections of Christ.
The latter act premiered a lot of new material, but still
managed to wow the masses, while JD, dressed in football gear
in our national colours, was riveting with numbers as Baptise
and You are Nothing Without God.
