New Spanish Album to be released! — With New Videos!
While Danny is only saying the new Spanish “Hope in Front of Me” album will be out “within a couple of weeks”, others at the video shoot are saying we will be getting 6 new music videos and the album is coming out on Cinco de Mayo! Well, even if it is NOT until Mid- May, we are still thrilled to get the new music and videos, too!
Nashville Day 7: Dang Daniel! A few years ago I volunteer filmed a charity promo video for this guy. As it turned out, he had been on a tv show. That and a buck will get you a cup of coffee in Nashville, but flash forward and he's beaten the odds of ex-idols, and gone on to earn two #1 singles. Over the past few years, he's hired me for every random job you could think of, including (but not limited to) driving his tour van, recording radio liners, and working night security. Yesterday, we finally got to do a "real" video shoot/live recording at a real studio. On May 5th his new Spanish language album drops, and with it the first video. I'm excited to be a small part of this truly great man's career.
Danny Gokey Talks about the “American Idol” Finale!
“CCM Magazine” caught up with Danny Gokey to talk about his experience on the final stage of “American Idol” — and whether it really is the final stage??
Some of the contestants and judges had some great perspective on the impact of Idol overall on the industry and culture. How would you summarize it?
DG: When you look at the stats, it’s pretty staggering! The opening of the finale was a really cool picture of the impact of the show—there were over sixty former “idols” on the stage and that’s just a representation of all the people and amazing voices who have come through the show and were a part of American pop culture musically. It gave unknown people like me the chance to pursue a dream and to gain exposure to the music industry that could have never happened on that large of a scale otherwise. All the contestants on American Idol have collectively sold over 60 million albums and 225 million downloads!
