Danny Gokey performs the classic song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” for the his Bon-Ton Christmas promotion – at the YouTube Studios.
First up, a little bit from the Question & Answer before the concert:
What is your favorite song?
After Natalie said a hymn, Danny said “Give Me Jesus” to which Natalie joked “way to self promote, Danny” and burst out laughing. I love their camaraderie. She said they are like brother and sister and he agreed cause she picks on him but since he grew up with 4 sisters who picked on him, he’s used to it.
What is on your bucket list?
Natalie answered that one of hers has already happened and that was headlining Carnegie Hall but another item she hopes to come true is to live in NYC for 6 months. Danny jokingly said he hopes his album sells a million copies but then in excitement said one item is going to happen in the summer because he has a booking in Hawaii. Wow. Did we know this? (Editor’s note: Yes, we did, but a date and specific location has NOT been announced….)
Setlist for her night:
