  1. Lots of posts at MJs about Christina Grimmie’s murder as she signed autographs for fans after a concert. She was 22.

    Trying to wrap my head around this. Don’t know many of the details, other than that Christina’s brother tackled the shooter, who then committed suicide.

    Old-timers here may remember the days (during the country era) when one of Danny’s fans tripped other fans’ radar by appearing to be mentally unstable. I remember being worried for Danny, and I think someone may have alerted him, or his management, or his security. (I’m very fuzzy about the details now, but I thought she could also be a risk to any female she perceived as close to Danny, like a girlfriend.)

    I’m sure that’s water under the bridge now, but it was scary at the time.

  2. Very sad news about Christina. Very brave of her brother to act as quickly as he could so that no one other than the shooter was also hurt.

    I would surmise that this will shake all artists/public figures that try to meet freely with the public. I would think that female performers remain most at risk. But then there are incidents like John Lennon…..

    Crazy has no explanation or reason….

  3. I never heard that story, Ellen.

    Very sad to hear about the young woman killed. I still remember the day John Lennon was killed. I was expecting my third child and resting when the news came on. It was such a shock. I hope Danny has lots more security these days. You never know what is in the mind of others…

  4. I wasn’t familiar with Christina Grimmie but quite a tragic situation.

    Jan, perhaps they are just mixing up those promo videos? The K Love version is nice, it seems to treat Danny and Kristian as co-headliners with the others as special guests.

    Air1 has the two stronger acts opening and closing its ad, with the junior ones in the middle. Could be a plan that way.

  5. This was posted by Danny/his management yesterday about the Positive Hits Tour that starts at the end of July:

    This is going to be such a fun tour!! You’re not going to want to miss it! I’ll be doing all the favorites and MAYBE a new one or two! Pick up your tickets early, it’ll be here before you know it! Kristian Stanfill Passion Music Capital Kings Hollyn.

    So , new music to start rolling out in 6 weeks or so?



  6. Hmmm… Lurker, I think it may be time for a new Danny album when HIFOM sinks below the Top 50….. or sooner!

    So sad to read about the terrorist attack in Orlando….. so tragic.

    I put up this post about Sophia’s Heart’s upcoming events. I’m not sure if Danny’s new fans know much about it. (Unlike those of us who might have heard about it a lot back in his early career….)



  7. Lord make me an instrument of Your peace. Where there’s hatred, let me sow love; where there’s injury, pardon; where there’s doubt, faith…

    This was on Danny’s Twitter Page. I thought it worth posting here. โ™ฅ


  8. Cannot even begin to wrap my head around the slaughter of the 50 (50!) poor souls gunned down in a nightclub in Orlando. The madness must stop!


  9. Jan or Admin2,
    I accidentally posted the above comment on the Sophia’s Heart thread. It makes no sense there. Can you delete it? Please.


  10. Thank you, Jan. It worked. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Leyicet’s and Danny’s videos are always entertaining. Very happy for them.


  11. Just saw the video. I think that may need its own page! Adorable! Leyicet is so funny. And so is Danny!


  12. Meant to add that I really needed that. I’m very stressed right now, between an arduous workweek last week, trying to find good doctors for my sister in an area that has none, and the Orlando murders of Christina Grimmie and 49 people at an Orlando nightclub — well, I really needed a laugh.


  13. Feel better, Ellen.

    I want to send you a rose, but I don’t know how to make one, so I’m sending in a substitute. I’m sending the green man smiley as a rose substitute.

    (Whatever shows up, pretend it is a rose. I may have forgotten how to make the green man.)

    :mr green:


  14. I’m glad you were able to enjoy Danny & Leyicet’s video. They are a lot of fun together. I hope things go smoother on the family front. I know how fatiguing it can be to try to get the best medical care for your family….. I am my mom’s health advocate and Monday we tried to do the best we could to address her concerns/complaints as we could….

    I don’t know how many of you are Casey James fans. I’ve loosely followed him, and other former Idols, to see how things are going in their career. He was also a 3rd place finalist. He and Sony partied ways last fall. Here’s his post to his fans: http://www.pdf.investintech.com/preview/508a7464-3192-11e6-879e-002590d31986/index.html


  15. Hmm, it is looking as if TYHTBA has peaked at #2 on mediabase. Would like to be wrong and there could be a final push but it’s drifted down quite a bit now. The Billboard #1 is on the books at least, either way

  16. Hey Lurker, I liked that instagram so much, I shared it ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really wonder if getting the highest AI for awhile on Mediabase gives Danny that #1 he wanted for TYHTBA? His song is fading faster than Lauren’s, I doubt there will be another rally.

    Nonetheless, he got the #1 on Billboard for sure, so???

    Someone has done a really good job of updating Danny’s Wikipedia page and is only about 8 days behind. Our thanks to “Rhzleosl” for all the work he/she has put into making it a much better page!!

  17. I really wonder if getting the highest AI for awhile on Mediabase gives Danny that #1 he wanted for TYHTBA?

    I’d assume that is what his team is using when they refer to a #1 on the MB ‘airplay’ or audience chart?

    It would be nice to see a #1 on the regular MB chart.

    But the two #1s on Billboard from a debut CCM album is a very nice credit. Esp when it is three, isn’t it? Or did none of the Christmas songs get all the way to the top of the single chart.


  18. The Christmas songs didn’t make it to #1. But the Christmas album did the week it was released.(On the holiday album chart). In October ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Guess what?? My husband and I drove down the mountain to the desert to do some shopping, and when he flipped the stations there was Danny Gokey singing, TYHTBA!! I never listen to the radio at home, but driving it’s either CD’s or radio. Now, I know exactly what station to listen to. ๐Ÿ™‚ There aren’t many singers on the radio I can smile and say that I shook their hand. Well…. Cher. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Has Jan mentioned that we’ve passed 3000 comments on this site?!

  22. Nope, I hadn’t mentioned the # of comments…. because I didn’t notice it ๐Ÿ™‚

    I do keep a close eye on our instagram, Facebook and twitter followers, though… I liked seeing these two recent followers: Gloria Gaynor and Michael Childers ๐Ÿ™‚

    I found a really cute video on a mother/daughter team that attended a recent Danny concert. I think Sara and her mom are just plain adorable. Thanks to Sara for sharing her fun night out with us!



  23. I also keep a watch on the new songs Danny is registering with BMI. Since he put out the Christmas album, I have found 10 new songs. The latest is a co-write with Bernie Herms and Emily Lynn Weisband: “Stronger Than We Think”. I’m going to guess it’s along the inspiring vein, eh?

    Two other recent titles: “Be Still” (I’m guessing it’s going to include the phrase “And know I am God” from the often mentioned bible verse that Danny heard after Sophia’s passing) and “New Sun Rising” . Also seems to run the hope theme…. now, if he had said “Bad Moon Rising” it would remind me of an old Creedance Clearwater Revival song…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  24. Thanks, Lurker. That brought back memories. 1969.. I was in high school. How do you young ladies know this song? Great band. ๐Ÿ™‚


  25. I’m pretty sure I have Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” . . . somewhere. Great dance song! And an anthem.

    I remember my cousin buying “Bad Moon Rising.” He was staying with our family for the summer, sometime after his mother (my aunt) had passed away. It was supposed to give my uncle and his two older brothers some time to deal with things. But he was used to living in a major metropolitan area and was bored to tears in a small town. I remember being astonished that his allowance was big enough to buy a 45 rpm record. I also remember he wanted hot chocolate (or maybe chocolate milk?) one day, and he rode my bike to the local mom and pop store to buy cocoa, but he made a mistake and bought unsweetened baker’s chocolate instead. The expression on his face! We were so young. I remember being mad he wouldn’t let me watch my favorite cartoon. But before he left, I ended up really liking his cartoons!

  26. This is the q&a from the K Love awards that was up briefly on Facebook and then taken down that evening


  27. “How do you…know this song?”

    After Jan wrote about โ€œNew Sun Risingโ€ and โ€œBad Moon Rising,โ€ I was curious. I wondered if there was a “New Moon Rising.” I looked on youtube and found one. I didn’t like it. While I was there, I saw this one–the one Jan wrote about. I listened to it, and I did like it, so I brought it here.
    (I think I’ve heard it somewhere before but don’t know where.)


  28. I remember a whole bunch of Creedance Clearwater Revival songs….. I originally thought New Moon Rising, too… but I knew that wasn’t right.

    Look at you, Admin2, put up a new post!!


  29. Look at you, Admin2, put up a new post!!
