Back during Danny Gokey’s run on “American Idol”, he had a ton of support in his hometown of Milwaukee including the local radio station, KISS-FM and their DJs Wes, Rahny & Alley.

Popular radio station 97-3 NOW announced that a familiar voice has returned to Milwaukee’s airwaves: Rahny Taylor! The former host of the “Wes, Rahny and Alley” morning show on KISS-FM returns to his native Milwaukee to host his own morning show.  He leaves his three-year stint at contemporary Christian music station K-LOVE & Air 1.

What were you doing out in California?

Rahny: I left KISS, and I went to work for K-LOVE, which is a Christian network. I went from Justin Timberlake to Christian music, and I think Justin Timberlake is still doing his thing. It’s funny because when I first got to K-LOVE they were telling me that there was this new artist who just got into Christian radio, and his name was Danny Gokey. I was like, “Yeah, I’m pretty familiar with that guy.”

Danny Gokey is A-MAZE-ing! Is Any “Idol” Ever Featured in Corn???

mcarthur-danny-gokey-maze-497x500

Seven years after his season of “American Idol” ended, we think this just might be the most unusual promotion…. Danny Gokey‘s face is the inspiration for an 11 acre cornfield maze!  It’s being used to promote an upcoming fundraiser at the Florence Civic Center’s Uptown Ballroom on Thursday, Nov. 17.

The charity event will benefit the House of Hope and Sophia’s Heart Foundation. Organizers report that the idea to use Danny’s face was agreed to by his management in just an hour! (Early consent was essential since mazes have to be planted that way, not cut into the shape!) and that Danny is expected to get a bird’s eye view of the maze by riding a helicopter over the field the day of the show!

The concert is sponsored by BREATHE, Lifetime Hearing, Freeman’s Bakery, and McArthur Farms.

#MusicWithPurpose: Meet Danny Gokey and why just released an album in Spanish

The American musician gave details about his latest album, in Spanish and salsa.

By: Grethel Delgado

What is an artist? A communion between the person and his work. Gokey Danny, life story and music are one.

The American singer, born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, success came after an intense struggle to conquer their dreams. He also feels a special connection to the Hispanic world.

According Gokey announced in networks, you are promoting this Spanish version of his album “Hope in front of me”. The 13 songs on the album are dedicated to life, love and willpower.

Gokey told Barrio his motives in launching this album

“The mother of my wife is Cuban, Pinar del Río. At home we speak Spanish, even though it costs a bit. I want to connect with the Hispanic community, my music is also some Latin mode. ”

Besides his passion for music, Gokey has other projects. Undoubtedly the most interesting is “Sophia’s Heart”, a foundation dedicated to supporting people in need. In this organization musical and artistic events featuring young people who need support for their careers are made.

Sophia’s Heart Foundation, is a musician tribute to his former wife, who urged him to perform at the “American Idol” program. Just weeks before his hearing, his wife died of a congenital heart problem.

Danny remained true to his promise to appear in the contest, and was a finalist, securing a contract with a record label.

Since then, his career has evolved and its humanitarian work in the foundation that bears the name of his ex-wife.

Life is a gift, and one chance. Gokey knows very well, not only by the experiences he has had, but by its deliverability. Danny is a simple man, and interact with it is to feel the good energy projects.

“The organization that I lead is part of my story. I was that person who was trapped in a circle, he needed help. Many people came to give me a hand when I could not see the exit. Without their cooperation, I would not be here now. So I want to somehow give back everything you have given me. ”

Pop to salsa

“I like the Latin rhythms of Latin music. Listen to this music changed my life. I especially like the sauce. It has become part of me. ‘The Hope against mi’ is an adaptation to Latin sounds, but the idea is the same as the original. ”

As the title indicates, it is a call to hope, to overcome obstacles and always seek the light. Danny Gokey is very positive. The blows of life have not allowed him to relent in the pursuit of happiness. What makes you happy? Enjoy your family, helping others, and live music.

His musical references, among others, are …

“Mark Anthony, Victor Manuel, Luis Enrique. I think its rhythms and voices are contagious. I try to explore my music in many ways, and as the Hispanic music has been an influence for me, it is enough to release this album right. ”

“My idea is that this album is heard among Latinos, and then want to schedule a concert. But what I do is to always go forward. I do not like to stand still in the comfort zone. You have to venture out and experience, take on new challenges. ”

New steps

“In January next start writing and recording music in Spanish year. It’s my new challenge and my dream. ”

The album “Hope in front of me” is now available on iTunes, and is expected in the coming months can be a concert. For now, we leave you with the full video of his song. Because hope comes in the rhythm of salsa!
