“We are so excited to get back out on the road in 2022 with some of our best friends – Danny Gokey, Mac Powell, and Adam Agee,” said Michael Tait, lead singer of Newsboys.
“I’ve loved crossing paths with Newsboys at shows and events over the years, and really enjoyed touring with them on Winter Jam a few years ago,” said Danny Gokey. “Not only are they a ton of fun, but I also have such respect for their music and ministry, which is why it’s an incredible honor to be joining forces with them on the Stand Together Tour this Spring. These shows are going to be a blast, and I can’t wait to see everyone out there!”
Danny and Leyicet discuss how they met (on Twitter). It started when Leyicet responded to a Chuck Norris joke he posted. He “slid” into her DMs since he had never seen her respond to him before. (This some of us knew since we had seen it happen on twitter, lol. She was following him, he followed her back.)
What surprised me is the off putting comments Danny made when they first met, “Are you going to wear that?”

We know Danny Gokey is a huge fan of Disney, their movies, parks and music… So, how cool would it be to join an international ensemble to perform “Harmonious” an all new nightime spectacular at EPCOT? VERY COOL. Watch a snippet of Danny performing in the following video from Walt Disney World EPCOT:
