The multi-gifted Deitrick Haddon is at the helm of a new choir out of Los Angeles, the League of Xtraordinary Worshippers (LXW) poised to make a big impact on the series premiere of Preachers of L.A. reality series.
"Who is LXW?" According to Haddon, the 100-member choir is comprised of vibrant, energetic young artists who have a passion to present the Gospel in a contemporary way.
When he first decided to form this group, Deitrick wanted to pick a name that would not only distinguish them from other choirs but would also provide insight into what the group is all about. His inspiration came from an unlikely source, a comic book.
"I was thinking towards the avenue of the justice league but a choir version! Action heroes for Christ! Then it just came to me one day, League of Xtraordinary Worshippers and it stuck! ... an elite group of young people fighting everyday battles in their own lives, while serving and protecting their fellow brothers & sisters in Christ. You have to be called to do such a task as these young adults!" said Haddon.
LXW, with their futuristic appeal, created buzz since first appearing in Deitrick's "Church Rock" video and now blowing up on social media.
Last week the new groups first live recording appeared on the premiere episode of Preachers of L.A.
League of Xtraordinary Worshippers debut project will be available in 2014.
