We’ve heard he’s stepping away from the Danny Gokey Band. We thank him for the a superb job for the DG Band, wish him the best and hope we’ll see him again!

“Being in Danny’s band has been one of the most amazing times of my musical career. He’s also a good friend. I wish him nothing but the best.” – JL

  1. I don’t remember making two smiles above. Guess I did, though. 🙂 🙂 Unless I have a ghost writer helping me. ❓

  2. It would be great if Danny could appear on the 24th. But did anyone see him shown or mentioned when the new contestants did THREE of his Idol songs? I didn’t. I thought it odd he wasn’t shown…. 🙁

  3. Sorry, Jan. Typical treatment for Danny from American Idol. It’s what I felt and saw many times when I saw him on Idol. In many ways they used and abused him. I know this is where Danny’s career possible started, but it is another reason I stopped watching American Idol. Maybe they’ll surprise us and Danny will appear. He certainly left a “foot print” on that show, and deserves it. *The above was just an opinion.. 🙂

  4. I think, over the years, that Idol itself (not a certain segment of the Idol-viewing public) has treated Danny well. There are a LOT of former Idol contestants, and it was nice to get a glimpse of some others who aren’t shown a lot. I hope we see or hear something of Danny before the show ends (he always seems to get a bump when that happens) but I won’t be mad if we don’t.

  5. If Idol HAD shown a throwback segment of Danny performing, I would’ve liked to see “Stand By Me.”

  6. You said it better than I did, Ellen. I think Danny’s story for American Idol was an emotional one. It pulled me in. After a while, I wonder if Danny had wished they would move past it. I know for ratings and survival of a reality show it’s good to have conflict, emotion, and sometimes turmoil. For myself, I don’t find that entertainment. I use too, but not any longer. Hence, my negativity of American Idol and other “reality” shows. I know that many of you enjoy American Idol, and I respect that.

    Now, if Danny does perform on Idol I would love to see it. You Are So Beautiful, was one of my favorite performances.

    Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I’m looking out my window watching the snow melt. 🙂

  7. “I think Danny did very well by his amount of exposure on the tour.”
    🙂 😎

  8. The album usually goes down on Sunday. But it is Sunday, and the numbers are going up. 😎

  9. Danny and his manager, Penny, headed to Meant 2 Live Foundation for a service with the Helping Up Mission. Nice album of photos of their morning:

    Meant To Live Foundation’s #Splendor event this morning at Helping Up Mission was truly incredible! We had a unique worship service with American Idol alum Danny Gokey along with the choir and band of this Baltimore based homeless shelter. It was a piece of Heaven as we came together as one body to praise the almighty King. Photo Credit: Breasia Productions


  10. Hi everyone, glad things seem to be going well.

    I liked that interview with Kris Allen but I was confused at how he indirectly referred to Danny’s solo performance as ‘consistent’ with how he usually did on the show, or words to that effect.

    Does that mean he thought Dream On was really good that night? Or that he thought Danny sounded every week like he did with that performance :O

    Glad you made it to the Road Show Jan. And we are press!

    Here is video of Danny with the mission choir. (Did I beat Jan in posting something?! Can’t be lol) via HelpingUpMission on YT

  11. Hey Admin! I think Kris may have been referring to the recording of Dream On, not the performance? That’s how I interpreted it….

    Cool that you found the video. I will have to check it out. I will admit I didn’t go to YouTube to check lately…. I still have a big Christian concert date to post for Danny. August in WA…. taking a break. Have at it if you are in the mood: Creation NW.

    I had a fun day spending time with my daughter (she is off on Wednesdays)

    PS. I added the video to the Nice Bits & Pieces post. Danny seems quite subdued in his performance (making the guys in the choir the focus?) But it also seemed to me that he really wasn’t looking at the choir director. More camera focused or the guys.
