Love God Love People – New Single

New Single to Radio by Danny Gokey

We’ve had confirmation that Danny Gokey’s next single to radio is “Love God, Love People”.  A perfect song and sentiment for a time when we are challenged with a worldwide pandemic of COVID-19.

The original lyric video for “Love God, Love People”, that was released with the album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet” has over 865,000 views BEFORE hitting the radio waves. (But then the video for “New Day” has over 2.5 million views!)

We hope this one catches on with radio and the listeners. This comment by HIS Radio bodes well:

Songs You May Not Have Heard Danny Gokey Sing Before

Danny Gokey and Friends performed for the KLOVE Cruise in a special “halftime” show during the Superbowl while they were returning from Bermuda.

Tim Norwood shared the following video of Danny Gokey (and his band), 615 Funk (Tim Akers & The Smoking Section), David Frey (Sidewalk Prophets), Blanca and Jasmine Murray

It had a true throwback vibe with the large horn section from the Tim Akers & the Smoking Section and these 80’s songs like “The Power of Love” (Huey Lewis), Ain’t No Mountain High Enough (Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell)I Knew You Were Waiting (George Michael & Aretha Franklin), September (Earth Wind & Fire) and Superstition (Stevie Wonder)!

While the video is a little skewed the sound it good, so enjoy!!  Thanks Tim!!!
