Grammy Award nominated singer Deitrick Haddon’s second film venture, ‘A Beautiful Soul,’ enjoyed robust box office receipts during a limited engagement run in a dozen AMC Theater markets this past May and it’s now its making its home entertainment debut. The DVD of the PG-rated film goes on sale on 21st August at in stores and online everywhere with a $19.95 list price. “I am excited about the success we are experiencing, not just with the movie but with the lives being changed,” says Bryant Scott of Tyscot Films. “This movie is having a powerful, positive impact on people, including those who have not been regular church goers. To sum it up, God is using this film in a major way to change lives, and that’s what it’s all about.”
This movie comes on the heels of Haddon’s 2010 movie debut ‘Blessed & Cursed’ that has sold over 100,000 copies as a direct to DVD film. Aside from Haddon, who stars as an R&B singer named Andre Stephens, the film also stars Harry Lennix (‘The Matrix,’ ‘Barbershop 2’) as Jeff Freeze, Robert Ri’chard (‘Meet The Browns’), Vanessa Bell Calloway, Lesley-Ann Brandt, John Salley, Golden Brooks, Bishop Noel Jones and Barry Floyd (‘The Game’). Directed by Jeff Byrd (Showtime’s ‘Soul Food’ TV series) ‘A Beautiful Soul’ is a contemporary twist on Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’. It’s the story of Andre Stephens, an R&B superstar who has success, fame and fortune but spiritually has lost his way. The film follows Andre after his “perfect” life is shattered in a brutal attack that leaves he and his best friend clinging to life. As he embarks on a spiritual journey that exists in a place that is neither on Earth nor in Heaven, Andre is forced to make a choice that could change his destiny forever.
