Rob and John
Danny’s segment within the podcast begins shortly after the 23:30 mark. It touches on his history before and during American Idol, and some tidbits from his current music era such as the thought process behind his new album Christmas Is Here. Striking to hear the instant dual “Yes” reaction from both Rob and John when Danny mentions the old spiritual Give Me Jesus, the album’s strong and reflective finale.
Danny also talks a little about his discussions with record labels before undertaking his current deal. He comments that he is the only Christian artist currently working with his present label, BMG. Danny states that he was fortunate to have the overall top selling song with BMG New York last year and was among their first artists to “recoup” his record deal.
