Didi Jeremie’s eighth album, entitled “Come As You Are” features 10 new songs, solely in English, and handles with delicacy what some may consider taboo subjects.
Jeremie says, with the fear of God and the spirit of peace, he holds onto his promise to deliver Christian music with every annual album release.
“From now on, I intend to conquer the heart of Anglophones. I want to go further with the Haitian Christian music,” said Jeremie, who is one of the few singers of the Christian-Catholic music genre with an impressively large fan base that expands beyond his congregation.
Settling down in the United States after high school, Jeremie has been noted as one of the most inspiring and prolific Haitian artists in his genre and generation. His music is simple and fluid, complete with Haitian rhythms and American, European and African influences. His music videos hold records for television air time and many credit that success to the accessibility and originality of his lyrics and videography.
Jeremie has represented Haitian gospel at notable venues in North America and the Caribbean. He has performed at Boston’s historic Fanueil Hall, and annually at the city’s equally historic Strand Theatre. His talent has taken him to diverse congregations in New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Canada.
In the Caribbean, he has performed in Martinique’s Parc des Floralies, in Port-au-Prince’s Rex Theatre, in Tabarre at the Sun Auto Music Festival, and also at the request of Haiti’s Ministère des Cultes. Jeremie has also performed at the National Palace, the “Sylvio Cator” Stadium, with renowned Haitian gospel ensemble Alabanza in their annual Christmas concerts, with Gilbert Dabady, Pascale D. Monfort and many others.
Jeremie was among the main acts at Evangel Fest 2004, a grand Haitian Christian music festival held at the Bayfront Park Amphitheater of Miami, commemorating Haiti’s 200 years of independence. He is a regular at the annual Charismatic Renewal Convention held on the campus of St. Louis de Gonzague in Delmas, Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Numerous Haitian artists, including Carley Joseph, collaborated on Jeremie’s latest album. The album is produced by Didi Jeremiah WJ Productions for a division of The Farinen Group Inc.
