CCM Magazine: The Impact of Danny Gokey’s Latest Single

News-Apr4 Danny Gokey

“Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” Rises on Radio, Sales

A wonderful article by CCM Magazine features the impact (and success) of Danny Gokey’s third single to Christian radio, “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again”.

“This song has been such an amazing gift,” says Danny Gokey. “People who hear it have an immediate reaction to it because we’ve all been through hurt, loss & disappointment on some level…….Hope again, believe again, dream again, that’s what I want people to walk away with when they hear it!”

While we already know of it’s success at radio according to our Billboard chart news HERE (2nd week at #1 on CAC Indicator Chart and #4 on Christian National Airplay, Digital Songs and Hot Christian Songs!) the article contained tidbits like this:

1) Greatest album sales — even more than release week!– of “Hope in Front of Me” have been reached:  10,161!

2) Single sales of TYHTBA were 8,600 last week!

3) Danny’s recent 28 city tour was in front of 200,000 attendees!

4) Danny  will be announcing a summer headlining tour in the next few weeks and in addition, 19 concert dates were included in the article– ~ seven of them new events we will be adding to our Danny Gokey Calendar!

And how could we not love an article that includes this quote?

“The New York Times raves Gokey “has a robust voice that allows him to jump among his various identities without seeming out of place.”

  1. I’m so excited and happy that Danny’s career is hitting it’s stride! Those album sales numbers are great. I think he sold about 8,000 when it came out and he wasn’t getting much radio play. CAC radio has been HUGE to Danny’s career growth.

  2. Lurker, I like numbers, too. I had to add in the emotional impact of the song to my post….

    I also like this statement I didn’t put in our post (I don’t want to copy TOO much and get in trouble…)

    “Hope In Front Of Me has been consistently selling thousands of copies a week since its release almost two years ago”

    90 weeks times 2,000 puts the album sales at 180,000. I bet it’s closer to 200,000! I may have to ask how many albums have been sold of HIFOM….

  3. It is fun to see numbers. This is another I don’t recall seeing before “a Barnes & Noble Top 5 autobiography”
