Church on the Moon

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Rather than think of the title Church on the Moon as silly, think of it as bold and fun, two qualities that help define Deitrick Haddon. The title to the contemporary gospel singer's fifth effort is tied to the album's key track, "Gravity," which finds Haddon observing the beauty of Earth from the Moon.
