The newest addition to the Gokey family was born on Friday, August 16. Emanuel’s timing was great; father Danny Gokey was able to be there for the birth of his fourth child with his wife, Leyicet in Nashville; but just before Danny had to leave for the “Off the Charts” Festival that he was headlining in ND! Fortunately, Danny was back in time to bring Leyicet and the new baby home on Sunday.

Four Xtreme Winter Youth Conferences 3 day will be held in over a three day period for enrolled youth groups. The rates seem really reasonable and include workshops, speakers and concerts by Danny Gokey, Skillet, Newsong, For King and Country, Hollyn and more!
Here’s what the conference organizers say about it:
“We have strategically selected Branson and Gatlinburg to provide fun and escapte from the everyday for you and your youth. And as part of that, we have scheduled an abundance of free time for you the youth leader to personally interact with your group. Take advantage of this focused time to build relationships and common experiences that can allow for ministering opportunities now and in the future.”
“I never take getting a No. 1 chart position for granted, or just expect that a song is going to hit, so when it does, it’s always a huge deal to me,” Gokey tells Billboard. “So many people work together to accomplish that, and then it has to connect with fans and at radio, so I’m always honored when that happens. I believe that this is a song of encouragement and hope and we all need that at some point in our lives.”
Danny’s latest single, “Haven’t Seen It Yet” rises by 5% to 11.4 million audience impressions in the week ending June 23, 2019.
